I’m a little late getting these up this year but still wanted to document 2022. I didn’t quite reach my reading goal of 90 books but I came close with 84! Here are my top ten picks for the year plus a best in show.
With the exception of Inciting Joy and Bittersweet, these didn’t release in 2022. It’s just when I happened to read them.
Best in Show
The lump of firewood beside our house has finally thawed, and an ant – the true harbinger of warm weather – made its way across the bedroom wall and down the page of a book a few days ago. If this time of year is rich in anything, it’s rich in expectancy. Everything in nature seems ready to stir, and yet the only thing visibly stirring so far is daylight itself, which is steadily undoing winter.Verlyn Klinkenborg
