For years now, in December, I have organized my own “awards”. The best books I have read that year.
Because lets face it, sometimes Goodreads Awards leave me wanting!
Also with 140 books read so far, I have way more than 10 to praise!
So here we are but I am changing the rules.
I will post 21 times but not every day. I will see how this is manageable in my very busy life.
You are welcome to join of course! Know that I’ll use the hashtages #bestreadsof2022 but I can’t promise to find all your posts the day self! So if you want me to go comment on your post, I’ll invite you to leave a link to your posts in the comments!
The topics are below but feel free to adapt to your reading year! The goal is just to praise our favorites!
3 Illustrated book/comics
4 Adult Contemporary
11 YA Contemporary
12 Cozy mystery
13 Historical fiction
14 Best writing
15 Most imaginative/enchanting
16 Plot twist
18 Best surprise
19 Non fiction
20 Science fiction
21 Most impressive/wowed me
Thanks for reading!
Fantastic! I’m looking forward to seeing what books you’ll have on these lists, especially plot twist!
Thank you Mogsy!
I always love your end of year best-of posts so I’m excited to see you’ll be doing so many this year. 🙂
Thank you Suzanne!
Great idea, Sophie! Not sure if I’ll have time to join in, but I may try for some prompts
This looks really great, Sophie and I may join in for some! But shouldn’t it be 2022 instead of 2023 if it’s the best books of this year?
Yes Stephanie and thank you for noticing! I changed it now LOL
I can’t wait to see your 2022 favorite reads! Aren’t these posts so fun to put together right? I have been working on mine this week because its a lot but its also so fun to look back and reflect on what we read!
This is so true Renee! I wonder what books you’ll choose!
I look forwarding to seeing all your faves
Thank you Sam!
Just a question: I’d like to use your gorgeous graphic, but should it read 2022 instead?
Yes Tanya and now I have set up a new one! I am sorry I was overworked it seems!
So happy that you’re doing this again this year, Sophie! I enjoy playing along and posting as I’m able.
I want to do it at a relaxed pace so feel free to join when you can 😉
Can’t wait to see what you’ve picked Sophie!
