The 5 novels I’m most excited to read in 2022

I love reading. I’ve been an avid reader since I was a boy.

Sure, there have been times when I’ve read a lot less than I’ve wanted to.

Even if I’ve only read 4 books in a year, those 4 books have been read with enjoyment, passion and pure bliss. When I read a good book, life just seems to be easier. I don’t judge people’s book choices. I think that all reading is beneficial. And so…

Here are the fiction books I’m most excited to read this year. The suggestions come from my brother, a much quicker and greater reader than I, the internet, the Booktime magazine and just books I’ve wanted to read for years.

I hope you’ll join me in reading some of these books. They may quite change your life!

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

A story about the choices we make and life and how through a library, when life is over, how we can change them.

I think this concept is beautiful, and I’ve been meaning to read this book for almost a year.

I recently read Reasons To Stay Alive and The Comfort Book both by Matt Haig and after reading his nonfiction knew that I’ll dive into his fiction next.

1984 by George Orwell

This dystopian novel from the 1940’s explores modern issues such as mass surveillance and a lacking of freedom. The TV show Big Brother takes its name from this classic novel. The themes in this book are perhaps even more relevant now than at the time of its creation.

I read Animal Farm a few years back and it’s formed a lasting part of my views ever since. George Orwell has a way of tackling social problems and making them clear through his characters and their plot.

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

The Lost Symbol follows Robert Landon after the events in Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code as he explores Washington, D.C following one Masonic clue after the other. You don’t need to read any of The Robert Landon series in order to enjoy this book.

I loved Angels and Demons and loved The Da Vinci Code too. I find the themes in these books extraordinarily interesting and even though this book is on the lengthier side (650 pages) I think it will, like the last two, go by much quicker than I want.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Perhaps, other than the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett, one of the weirdest creations there is. This book follows Arthur Dent as his house, and his home, are destroyed and he goes around the galaxy hitchhiking and always taking his wet towel with him.

I’ve actually read a good amount of this trilogy of five, don’t ask me, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I’ve since seen the movie and while the production quality is questionable – loved every single minute of it. I look forward to jumping back into this story and world and reading the other 4 parts to Arthur Dent’s journey!

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

This allegorical novel is a translation that follows a young boy who leaves his home to be a shepherd. While travelling he figures out how to achieve his dreams.

This book is well-regarded as one of the most life-changing reads one can embark on.

I’ve actually read a little of this book before. I can’t remember why I had to put it down, I know I was enjoying it. I look forward to reading this tale – I got heartwarming and comforting vibes from it, and presume these will continue.

Read this book with me? If it doesn’t change my life, maybe it will change yours?
