Your 2022 book list
We are officially finished with the first month of 2022. Perhaps as the year goes on more normality will gracefully enter into our lives. During the lockdown periods, it was easy to click on to Spotify, Netflix or Amazon, but I’d rather not get into the details of nearly going bankrupt because of my Amazon shopping sprees. I definitely wasn’t smiling like an Amazon package when it came to delivery charges and customs charges, but deep down it was all worth it. A number of the purchases were even new books and speaking of which, I’d love to share some of my top books that you can read for 2022!
Needful Things – Stephen King
Such reading lists have to be kicked off by none other than the King of Horror – Stephen King. Needful Things is a book that is needed in your collection. If you like ‘small town with small town gossip’ and a stranger with an agenda that unravels bit by bit throughout the plot then you’ll simply sell your soul to the devil for this novel. It is a true masterpiece and a dance with the devil you won’t forget. The word “devil” seems to be mentioned a lot, must be a clue!
The Demonologist: Ed & Lorraine Warren’s true case files – Gerard Brittle
Truly eye-opening, terrifying, and real. I could keep going, but no-one is interested in seeing a fan-girl geek out about ghosts and demonic entities, but the book is truly an amazing read. Find out the facts of the Amityville case and the infamous Annabelle doll. Many of us have witnessed them in action in The Conjuring movies during some of their most terrifying cases which involve the Perrons, The Enfield case, David Glatzel and Arne Johnson, but we never really knew their background and true involvement in the case. Now is your chance and I promise you won’t regret it.
The Watchers – A.M Shine
We all need a book that is set in the forests of Galway, don’t we? The book has been said to have a real claustrophobic feel to it and it’s not wrong, but why don’t you experience that for yourself by picking up a copy in your nearest bookshop> No-one will be watching you to see if you actually read the book, they really won’t. Trust me. Read it though, a brilliant read and worth the effort of adding it to your (hopefully) growing collection of books.
Harry Potter – J.K Rowling
I will be annihilated for this, but it has been recommended to me a lot that I should read the Harry Potter series. It’s nearly everyone’s favourite book and movie franchise, but I never got into the whole interest of wizards and Potter’s life. However, even though I have not read it (yet), it deserves to be in the Top List of Books for 2022 because it will be a classic until the end of time.
The Promise – Emma Heatherington
Did you really think I would leave out a book that would tug at your heart-strings? I came across this book while visiting a Kilkenny bookstore and they voted it the top romance book, and if you don’t agree, then they’ll refund your money. Romance, yes, but heart-breaking all the same. A promise is a promise, right? A binding thing? However, if the stakes are too high is it possible that this promise will be upheld? Will happiness be found in the end? Read it to find out. I promise you’ll fall in love with it. No refunds available here though!
