Vulture’s Best Books of 2022

Another day, another book list. Today, Vulture released their picks for the best books of 2022 and they have an extensive list. Keep reading to see their list and which books they enjoyed the most this year.

Vulture covers news but they also dive into the book world. That gives their list some credence but it all comes down to how much you like Vulture. I personally enjoy their in-depth articles but don’t personally seek them out. You can see Vulture’s full list here.

    Thanks! Turns I actually own three of the titles and have put most of the rest on my “to buy” list. I like these books. They’re not mainstream and they offer povs I’m happy to explore.
