The latest best books of 2022 list comes from People Magazine. They wouldn’t be someone that I would normally trust to make such a list but I decided to give them a chance. So keep reading for the People Magazine best books of 2022.
The list is curated by People Magazine but they don’t say who chose the books to be on the list. Most likely, it was a group of editors but who knows? The article was written by “People Staff” and edited by Kate Tuttle. It could have been one staff member choosing one book that they thought was the best of the year. From looking at the list, that seems to be the most likely option.
People Magazine’s Best Books of 2022
- Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng
- Trust by Hernan Diaz

Smaller Authors Get to Shine
Seeing Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng gives this list some credence. Only time will tell how the other books on the list hold up. I do appreciate People giving newer and unfamiliar authors a platform. Not seeing big name authors is always a good thing because they get enough publicity as it is.
