Top 5 Reads of 2022


Considering the year is a few weeks shy of being over, this is the longest it’s taken me to get a top reads post out! I got several requests for last year’s top books. Turns out with a newborn AND a toddler around and basically attached to you 24/7, typing out blog posts (let alone planning them) can be trying! I’m not the hustling kind, it turns out.

I’m already excited to share my top 2023 books - though I ended up listening to the majority of them, there were some really great ones that stood out. Let’s knock last year out first though!

(By the way, you can find even more of my favorites on my Amazon page here!)

1. The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters by Priya Parker

Truly the best non-fiction book I’ve read in a while. Reframed my thinking around gatherings of all sorts and helped me start thinking about how to make gatherings more intentional and meaningful. Highly recommend!


2. The Truth About Ben and June by Alex Kiester

Great fiction. The writing style was A++ as I’ve not encountered a book from two perspectives written as well as this was. Excellent writing aside, the story itself was gripping and heartbreaking and I was very satisfied with the ending.

3. The Great Sex Rescue: The LIes You’ve Been Taught and How to Recover What God Intended by Sheila Wray Gregoire, Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach, Joanna Sawatsky

Finally, a Christian book that offers a healthy perspective on marriage and helps reframe unhealthy ways one may have been raised believing.

4. The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes

A fun historical fiction about five women running the traveling library in small-town Kentucky. An easy read and very interesting!

5. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb

Fun read of therapy from a therapist’s point of view. Strong language warning, but still a fascinating book.


I decided not to do a complete 2022 list this year, as these were my favorites anyway! You can check out my past book lists for favorites and I keep my Amazon storefront updated with favorite books as well.

What were some of the best books you read in 2022? Were any of these on your list?
