Always books. Never boring.

The staff of the New York Times Book Review released their 100 Notable Books of 2022 list a week ago featuring fiction, nonfiction, and poetry titles. They’ve since whittled this list down to 10 for their Best Books of 2022 list that was released today.

The list is made of five fiction and five nonfiction titles and is as follows:


The Candy House cover

The Candy House by Jennifer Egan

Checkout 19 by Claire-Louise Bennett

Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver

The Furrows by Namwali Serpell

Trust by Hernan Diaz

Unsurprisingly, the list has books in common with other best-of lists, like Barnes & Noble’s (An Immense World), Amazon’s (Demon Copperhead), and The Washington Post’s (Demon Copperhead, Trust, and Stay True).
