It’s that time of year again. The time where we come together and look over the books that we’ve read over the course of 2022 and list our favorites. Today’s list will include all of our favorite authors of 2022. Join us for a week of reflecting on our favorites and not so favorite reads, authors, series, and rereads.
Katie Reus: KR was a new-to-me author this year. I loved every.single.one of her books. I can’t get enough of her.
Abigail Owen: AO was also a new-to-me author this year. I really enjoyed her writing & her Inferno Rising series.
Dianne Duvall: Yet another new-to-me author, I really enjoyed all the books I read by DD.
Nalini Singh: Although I didn’t love Archangel’s Resurrection, I loved Storm Echo. It was classic Nalini Singh.
Georgia Lynn Hunter: My fourth new-to-me author on this list–I love her stories & her writing!
Honorable Mentions: Claire Kinglsey, Rebecca Zanetti, and Lisa Kleypas.
Dianne Duvall: Duvall was probably my best find of 2022. I hadn’t read her before and it was great having a huge backlist to glom. Her books aren’t all 5 star reads, but they were entertaining and kept me engaged.
Michelle Diener: I’m so glad I discovered Diener and was able to binge read the Class 5 series.
Lucy Score: Lucy Score’s books remind me of early Kristen Ashley. I love the way she brings her characters to life.
T.A. White: I had read White prior to 2022, but I discovered a new appreciation for her world-building when I read The Firebird Chronicles.
Ilona Andrews: I probably read Ilona Andrews the most in 2022. I reread the entire backlist plus some. The word-building and consistency makes for a rich and rewarding reading experience every single time.
Honorable Mentions: Kate Canterbary, Lorraine Heath and Nalini Singh.
My favorite author this year was Cate C. Wells: I inhaled her backlist and grabbed every one of her new books on release day.
