My Top 12 Reads of 2022

I am a reader and always have been.

My mom caught me many nights with a flashlight under my blanket reading when I should have been sleeping.

Once I got into veterinary school, my fun reading took a backseat to school work and required reading.

Once I had children, I became reacquainted with Dr Seuss of my childhood along with newer children’s authors such as Mo Willems and Sandra Boynton.

As my children got older, we progressed into the classics: Black Beauty, Tarzan, Around the World in Eighty Days, The Wind in the Willows, etc.

As they have mostly grown up now, I have discovered more and more books for me.

I love my online book club because it has expanded my reading horizons.

Here are my top 12 of this year. I read many more than this, and started even more. I will absolutely put down a book if I’m not enjoying it after a few chapters.

There are too many good ones to struggle through something that doesn’t catch my attention.
This list includes lots of different genre and topics, but all well-written with great storylines. 😊

I have found that audiobooks are my friend because I can “read” while I drive, do barn chores, exercise at the gym, do laundry, and a myriad of other things.

The Horse by Geraldine Brooks

The Almost Sisters by Joshilyn Jackson

Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt

The Bodyguard by Katherine Center

The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah

The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

Here’s a bonus, because I like a baker’s dozen.

The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson

There is no order to this list, other than the order they popped up in my Libby history. If you don’t have a library card with a Libby app, please get one. All of these books are free to download in either audio or text format.

Reading expands your horizons and allows you to see the world through a plethora of viewpoints.

Happy reading!!!
