25 Books You Need To Read In 2022

Happy 2022 everyone! A new year means a new reading list! If you are a reader like me then you totally understand the joy of making a reading list. Not only is it fun to see all the books you want to read but it’s also fun to share with others. Normally I am a “go with the flow” kind of person when it comes to reading buuuttt I own way too many unread books and I need to get on them! The book lover struggle is real!

I have set 2 reading goals this year: 1) read 50 books and 2) read more books that I already own. Yes, the 2nd goal is a little vague but honestly I just need that reminder to check out my own bookshelf before I head to the bookstore (aka my happy place).

So, let’s just jump into the books I want to read this year! Keep in mind that this list will definitely grow as the year goes on – as I mentioned my goal is 50 books as this list is 25 (gotta allow myself some go with the flowness, right?)

My Netgalley titles:

In case you aren’t fully immersed in the book world and have no idea what Netgalley is – it is essentially a website where publishers and book reviewers/bloggers/influencers hang out. Publishers offer ARC’s (advanced reader copies) of books that are new releases/ not released yet. Book reviewers can request to read the ARC’s and if you get approved you get an e-copy of the book in exchange for an honest review!

A Letter To Three Witches by Elizabeth Bass *

A Botanist’s Guide To Parties And Poisons by Kate Khavari *

Lucy Checks In by Dee Ernst *

This Viscous Grace by Emily Thiede *

#FollowMe For Murder by Sarah E. Barr *

The Netgalley titles will grow as the year goes on and I request more but those are my current ones on my to-read list!! 

I am so freaking excited for all the great books I am going to read this year! If you have any of these on your reading list please please let me know, I always love chatting books with people!!
