My Top 2022 Releases

Happy New Year!

Let’s start off the new year by discussing our favourite reads of 2022! Here are my top 2022 releases (I will post a separate list of my top reads from previous years tomorrow!):

Keep It In The Family by John Marrs

Disturbingly dark, deliciously sinister and intensely entertaining, Keep It In The Family is a twisted and compulsive dark psychological thriller that will leave you sleeping with the light on (and checking your skirting boards for hidden messages!).

The Echo Man by Sam Holland

Dark, gruesome, and twisted, The Echo Man is a fresh take on a popular genre, and a must-read for any true-crime fan or “serial killer nerd”, as the author has dubbed herself. The Echo Man is everything I love about a dark thriller. It’s gory, fast-paced, and addictive, the characters are flawed but compelling, the crimes are horrifying, and the chase is exciting.

The Last Party by Clare Mackintosh

I love Clare Mackintosh’s books so I was beyond excited to see that she was starting a new series! But of course, I was also very cautious. Would this new genre suit her style of writing? Would I be invested in a new detective?

No need to worry! I enjoyed this so much that I sat and read it in one sitting.

Girl Forgotten by Karin Slaughter

Girl, Forgotten is definitely up to Slaughter’s usual standards for me. The characters are dark but compelling, the gripping case is shocking and gritty, and the sharp investigation is clever and skillfully written. Most of all, I loved the small town setting and mystery around what really happened 40 years ago, and I couldn’t wait to figure out the truth.

The House With The Golden Door by Elodie Harper

An arresting and compelling tale, The House With The Golden Door is a consuming and evocative story that transports you right back to the beautiful setting of Pompeii, as we continue to follow the incredible lives of the powerful characters at the forefront of this story about womanhood, fate, and personal strength.

The Ghost Woods by C.J. Cooke

One of my favourite reads last Halloween was The Lighthouse Witches, and author C.J. Cooke has done it again with her latest release.

This was another perfect read for the spooky season! There is witchcraft, fairies, zombies, creepy children, a remote house, gruesome body horror, tales of folklore, and a tense gothic vibe, all set alongside themes of feminism, motherhood, and nature. What more could you want?

One For Sorrow by Helen Fields

Having read this entire series this year, I couldn’t wait to get to this [current] final instalment. And as my second favourite book in the series, One For Sorrow does definitely not disappoint in its intensity, character development, or shocking crimes.

A fast-paced and exhilarating read, One For Sorrow is an action-packed and tense thriller that will have your heart absolutely racing, for more reasons than one.

All For You by Louise Jensen

Looking for a book that will keep you up until the early hours of the morning, unable to stop reading and desperate to find out what’s going on? I’ve been desperate for a book to grip me so uncontrollably, and that’s exactly what you get with All For You.
