  1. This is a great list, Margaret! I’m not surprised to see the Turow here; he is so very talented, I think. And of course, Colin Dexter’s work is excellent. And thanks for the reminder of the Patchett, which I really must read.


  2. Happy New Year, Margaret! Wishing you all the best in 2023! Nice list there. The only one I’ve read if BEL CANTO and that was a long while back. However, I’ve got a couple of the others on my TBR already. Will take another look at the rest. I’m reading THE ROSE CODE right now by Kate Quinn. It’s for a book group this Thursday and I’m not likely to finish it, but I’ll attend anyway to see what others thought. I’m liking it a lot so far.


  3. I just finished an Ann Patchett book, These Precious Moments, which I’m sure will be on my 2023 Favorites list. I loved and hated State of Wonder in equal measure. I hated the snakes and the scary environs. I decided to never visit the amazon region after reading that book.

    My 2022 Favorites


  4. Having spent the past couple of days catching up on NY posts and best of 2022, I think I can safely say that there was ONE book that featured on pretty much every ‘best of’ list – Claire Keegan’s Small Things Like These.

    Isn’t it wonderful how a novella can hit the right spot with so many readers all around the world?
