Books of 2022
For the past couple of years, I've written out (on my personal social media) my top ten books of the year. I don't, frankly, have time to read a hundred or more books a year, like many people, so my list is generally from a smaller pool. I also tend to NOT want to read the same books everyone else is. (For example, while I've read everything else from Sarah J. Maas, I have yet to cave and read A Court of Thorn and Roses...).
Regardless, I have a list! (Are you excited??)
So, Morgan's top 10 books of 2022:
The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
Delightful British mystery investigated by Octogenarians.
Bittersweet by Susan Cain
Really interesting research about why humans seems to find the bittersweet emotions so often.
The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray
Excellent fictionalization of the real person who was JP Morgan's personal librarian.
The Lord of Stariel by AJ Lancaster
The first book in a fun light fantasy (nothing epic), but cool "land magic" which I enjoyed.
Morgan is My Name by Sophie Keetch
STUNNING book about Arthur's half sister. Listen to it because it's currently ONLY an Audible book, but it'll be out in print in June 2023. Just. Wow.
Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing by Matthew Perry
So honest, so raw, hard to believe what he went through at certain points.
The Light We Carry by Michelle Obama
Excellent narrative about doing your best with what you have to offer the world, especially for teens and young adults.
Words Instead of Wings by Teri Harman
My cousin wrote this after deconstructing her faith and finding power in the divine feminine. It's lovely.
Timelines by Morgan Hagey
I mean. I had to. Have you read it yet?
The Comfort Crisis by Michael Easter
This book made me want to do hard things. It's kind of cool!
