The Best Books of 2022 (According to Cat)

It's hard to believe that the year is nearly at an end. Alongside making plans for the new year, this means it is due time to talk about the best books of the year (according to me, at least!). As per usual, I'm pretty horrible about picking just one or two books (though I was able to narrow it down for The Book Review Crew's Post). So, instead, I'm going to split all of my reading into categories and choose my favorites for each.

No matter how you look at it, this year’s reads were pretty fantastic. So many amazing books came out, and I’m lucky to have had so many opportunities to read.
