Top Ten Tuesday - FREEBIE - My Top TEN Reads From the First Half of 2022!!!


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Top Ten Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Below are my top ten favorite reads for the first half of 2022!! All ten books received a five out of five star rating by yours truly. I've listed the books in order in which I read them.

  1. OOh nice! Mostly new to me ones. I can't remember if I read Diana Rowland's book or not. For some reason I never could get into the zombie books.

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Normally, I am not a zombie fan either, but My Life As A White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland came highly recommended. It did not disappoint.

  2. I haven't read any of those but I am intrigued by some of the titles.

    1. With the exception of Thrity Umrigar, the rest of the authors on my Top Ten Tuesday list are new to me this year. It has been fun discovering new authors this year.

  3. What a great idea. I haven't read any of these books but some seem highly interesting. Thanks for that.

    My TTT is a Top Fifteen this week.

    1. Thank you, it has been discovering many new to me authors this year and branching out in terms of trying new authors/reads in 2022.

    2. That is always an interesting idea. Enjoy.

  4. I haven't read any of these, but they look like good reads. :)
