Happy Tuesday all, and welcome back to Functionally Fictional! This week I decided to list 10 of the books that I plan on reading at some point this year. This is kind of a Top Ten Tuesday and a 2022 TBR wrapped into one. Top Ten Tuesday, for those who aren’t familiar, was a weekly post originally hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but it was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It’s exactly what it sounds like; it’s a post comprised of a list of ten things (though, sometimes it’s not always ten things *shhh).
The majority of these books on my list aren’t new in 2022, but ones that I’ve been meaning to read for a while and just haven’t been in the mood for or haven’t gotten around to picking up.
So here are 10 of the books I plan on reading this year.
New in 2022:
Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan (Release: Jan 11, 2022)
A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham (Release: Jan 11, 2022)
The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh (Release: Feb 22, 2022)
A Life For a Life by Carol Wyer (Release: Mar 15, 2022)
The Midwife’s Secret – Emily Gunnis
This is an author that I absolutely love, so naturally, her books end up on my TBR. This one came out last year and it sounds so good!
The Lighthouse Witches by C.J. Cooke
Got a copy of this last year and started it but never finished it. From what I remember, it was pretty good, so I’m looking forward to finishing it.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I’ve heard about and seen this one on all the platforms over the last year and have yet to see anything bad about it. I figured it’s time to see what all the hullabaloo is about.
The Bone Jar by S.W. Kane
Another one on my ever-growing digital TBR list. It sounds great and right up my alley, so it’ll hopefully be a good read later this year.
The Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony
This one’s been on my digital TBR for a long, long while, and I came across it a couple of weeks ago and decided it was time to read it after re-reading the summary.
Love Cemetery: Unburying the Secret History of Slaves by China Galland
I recently came across this one while perusing my friend’s kindle, and it sounds fantastic.
