With the year almost coming to an end,Amazon has announced their top ten best books of 2022. There have been many major releases this year and with most of the books already being released, it seems like a great time to look at the ten best books of the year according to Amazon.
This year was jam-packed with many big names releasing a book such as the king of horror Stephen King, the most popular author at the moment, Colleen Hoover, and rising star Celeste Ng. But there were also releases by other authors that have won the hearts of millions of readers over the years.

- Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention—and How to Think Deeply Again by Johann Hari
- Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver

A Great Year for Books
A book that the editors of Amazon really like is Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. It is some of their pick for the best book of the year. It is a love-story with a different angle and it has become one of the surprises of the year. That is the magic of books. You never know which ones will win over your hearts and make you binge-read an author you never heard of before.
Other gems on the list include Solito: A Memoir by Javier Zamora that tells Zamora’s three-thousand journey from a small town in El Salvador through the U.S. border. Books like these capture the struggle and the other side of what migrants go through.
Three big name authors that made Amazon’s top ten list are Stephen King, Celeste Ng, and Don Winslow. While everyone knows who Stephen King is, the other two authors have made a name for themselves over the years. They are amazing writers and are showing that they will be around for the next few decades.
Amazon is one of the first organizations to release their best books of the year and the choices seem to be great. We will be seeing a lot more lists and expect them to be a bit different. This year has been a great year for new books and it will be a while before we realize which books truly are the ones worth reading.
