Check It Out: It was a great year for books — find favorite among top picks


It’s that time of year when lots of wrapping up happens. There is the literal wrapping up of toys, clothes, singing fish, decades-old fruit cakes passed back and forth between families and, of course, books. And then there is the traditional wrapping up of the year which results in the October to December flow of “favorites” and “best of” lists.

Well, guess what? Here’s another one. I don’t want you, dear reader, to feel left out from the “best” and “favorite” crowd, so this is my version of a 2022 review. This week’s recommendations are some of my favorite reads from 2022, but there were many, so keep in mind that 2022 was another great year for reading — and the library is here to help each and every reader.

Happy Holidays!
