2022 in Books

In 2022, I met my Goodreads reading goal of 110 books (just barely)! Here are my top 10 fiction reads for the year, all of which I rated at 5 stars.


    1. Fox Creek (Cork O’Connor, #19) William Kent Krueger
    2. Orphan Train Christina Baker Kline
    3. Heart Bones Colleen Hoover
    4. The Keeper of Lost Things Ruth Hogan
    5. Breathless Jennifer Niven
    6. The Probability of Miracles Wendy Wunder
    7. The Midwife’s Secret Emily Gunnis
    8. A Day Like This Kelley McNeil
    9. Everything Must Go Camile Pagán
    10. The Lighthouse Sisters Gill Thompson

I also read several nonfiction books in 2022. Here are my top 6, which I also rated at 5 stars.

    1. How to Keep House While Drowning: A Gentle Approach to Cleaning and Organizing K.C. Davis
    2. I’m Glad My Mom Died Jennette McCurdy
    3. Everybody Writes: Your New and Improved Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content Ann Handley
    4. Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times Jennifer Worth
    5. The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music Dave Grohl
    6. Coreyography Corey Feldman

My 2023 reading goal is set for 100 books because I want to devote more time to writing than reading this year. Here’s to finishing my 5th novel and writing more blog posts in 2023 than I did in 2022!

Thank you for reading,
Brandi Easterling Collins
