Amazon released the top 20 best books list chosen by their editors for the first half of 2022. See which new novels made the list and what you should add your to-read list!
Book Recommendations 2022
The first half of the year has come and gone and many new novels have hit the shelves. Finding new novels is difficult because you don’t know where to start. The good news is that companies like Amazon and Barnes & Nobles have editors that read new books and let us know what they think about it.
These editors write reviews and share their thoughts with us and help us decide whether this book should be something we read in the future. I am always looking to add new books to my to-read list and I appreciate these lists a lot. Not every book on these lists will be for you but if everyone is raving about a book, then it is worth checking out.

Yo The Kaiju Preservation Society RULES! It’s a perfect light, breezy romp fulla monstros that you can chomp through in about a week and never pretends to be anything else, hard recommend
Will definitely check it out!
I haven’t read any of these so far, but it looks like I’ll have more to add to my reading list!
I’ve only read Sea of Tranquility which was good. Liked it very much… but I don’t think it will be a top book of the year for me.
In the Shadow of Lightning is amazing! And I am really glad to see it here!!!
