The Book of the Year
There are a lot of books on this list that I have not heard of or haven’t garnered much attention. Seeing how diverse a lot of the best books of 2022 lists are makes me happy because that means it was a great year for books. More and more books are being published than ever before and many of them seem to be finding their core audience.
Even then, the book of the year seems to be decided unanimously. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin is one book that appears on most lists. It was chosen by Goodreads as the best fiction book of 2022. If you were to read one book from 2022, then I would recommend this one.
