It’s hard to believe that this year is drawing to a close. It has been good to see some live book events return this year. I was really pleased to get to the Theakston Crime Festival in July, even though it was a bit different to how it usually is, it was still a great weekend.
It’s been really difficult to choose a top ten this year. I’ve managed to read a total of 146 books this year so far. These are the books that have stayed with me throughout the year. In no particular order:
I am a big fan of Sarah Hilary’s writing. I love her Marnie Rome books but Fragile is her first standalone psychological thriller. You can read my full review by clicking here.
When I read When I Was Ten, I knew straight away it would be in my top ten books of the year. To read my full review, you can click here.
The Beresford is perfect for you if you are looking for a chilling read. I flew through it. You can read my full review by clicking here.
The twist at the end of When They Find Her blew my mind. It is such a gripping read. You can read my full review by clicking here.
Black Reed Bay is the start of what I hope will be a long running series featuring Detective Casey Wray. You can read my full review by clicking here.

I loved, loved this book. It is very creepy and very original. You can read my full review of The Last House on Needless Street by clicking here.
I’m a big fan of Will Dean’s writing and I loved his latest book, Bad Apples. I read this over Halloween and it was the perfect creepy read. You can read my full review by clicking here.
I hope you have a brilliant year in 2022.

What a great list Jacob. I have several of these on my TBR, so I will zip them up closer to the top.
Fab list Jacob!
I LOVED Shiver as well! You called it, it really is the perfect winter read.
