Top Ten Tuesday: Books & Series Read in 2022

By: Cait Marie

Can you believe it’s already the end of the year?? It blows my mind a bit I’m currently at about 80 books for the year, though Goodreads says a lower number since some of the books I edited aren’t on there yet.

So, it’s time to narrow it down to my top ten. I cannot include re-reads, but some are going to be part of series because it’s hard to pick a favorite out of a series.

1. Twisted Pages series – Elle Madison & Robin D. Mahle

I read books two, three, and four this year and am just obsessed.

Of Beasts and Vengeance
Of Glass and Ashes
Of Thieves and Shadows

2. Crescent City series – Sarah J. Maas

I finally read these two books early this year, and I’m honestly still thinking about them. I’ve been wanting to re-read them already.

House of Earth and Blood
House of Sky and Breath

3. Rise of the Vicious Princess – C. J. Redwine

This book blew me away. I adore all of C. J.’s books, but she really outdid herself with this one. I cannot wait to read the sequel!!

4. Crimson Kingdom – Robin D. Mahle & Elle Madison

I read most of this series in 2021, but I did finish it up early this year, and this last book was magnificent. This series, in general, is easily a top favorite.

5. Shadow Hills Academy: Relentless series – Stacey Trombley

I had the incredible opportunity to edit the first two books in this new series, and it’s absolutely phenomenal.

Reviews coming soon!

6. Queens of the Fae series – Melissa A. Craven & M. Lynn

This is another series I’ve been editing that I am completely in love with. I finished books eight through eleven this year and cannot wait for the last one to hit my inbox soon.

Fae’s Refuge
Fae’s Return
Fae’s Envoy

7. A Touch of Vampire series – Becky Moynihan

I’m currently on the fourth and final book in this series, and it might just be my favorite. They’re all amazing though.

Shadow Touched
Curse Touched
Fate Touched

8. Caught Looking – Kimberly Readnour

This college baseball romance series is everything. I was so excited for the final book to release, and it did not disappoint.

9. The Ex Hex series – Erin Sterling

I loved both of these books so much. The second one is actually my favorite, I think. I’ll be re-reading them for Halloween next year, for sure.

The Ex Hex
The Kiss Curse

10. The Charmed List – Julie Abe

This was adorable and deserves more hype.
