Books of the Year 2022
At The Reading Agency, we have read a lot of brilliant books over the past year; books that have made us laugh, cry and left us with a lot to discuss. Members of our team have picked the books that have stood out for them this year and shared a few words on why they loved it. We hope you find some inspiration for your next read, or perhaps spot a few titles you have enjoyed yourself. Dive in today and don’t forget to tell us what you thought of any of the books on the list by tagging us on social media using #BooksOfTheYear and tagging @readingagency! Find out more about the list.
The results are in! To celebrate National Reading Group Day on 14 September, we asked you for your recommendations for our 2022 Yearbook – the books that have made your group laugh, cry debate and more over the past year. We loved reading your recommendations and had a hard time selecting which books to put on our list. We hope that you enjoy them! Tell us what you thought of any of the books on the list by tagging us on social media using #booklist and tagging @readingagency!
We’ve collected together some of our previous booklists on a variety of themes and topics. Take a look to find your next read.
