Welcome to my top 10 of 2022!
Today’s post is about the books I didn’t get around to this year. There are way more than just ten but these are the ones that I really wanted to read but just didn’t happen for one reason or another.

Hide is a dark thriller about a hide-and-seek competition that turns deadly.

God of Fire is a retelling of the mythological story of Hephaestus.

What do you think of my top 10? Have you read any of these books?
I’m sorry you didn’t get to read these books this year, Stephanie, they all sound very interesting! I hope you’ll be able to read some of them next year (now just around the corner), especially retellings 😉
Fingers crossed for 2023!
I’m dreading writing my own post of books I didn’t read, it’s going to be long, lol. Oh well, there’s always next year, right?
I loved The Diamond Eye as well. And I’d like to read The Mayfair Bookshop, it looks good and I had not heard of it before.
I haven’t read any of these, but I got my sister Defend the Dawn for Christmas!
Best Christmas present ever! 😀
I have read The Diamond Eye!
Hope you’ll get around to all of these in 2023! I’m currently reading A Light in the Flame. The Brigid Kemmerer series is one I still need to start.
Defy the Night by Brigid Kemmerer was beyond amazing so I hope you start it next year!
Nathalie Haynes and Jennifer Saint are authors to read for me as well. I have read one of each of their books. Hopefully, you will get around to read these interesting books.
