My Book Wish List for 2022

stack of books

I’ve always loved to read, but I often ‘forget’ to pick up a book when I get some spare time. Since taking some time off work for my mental health however, I’ve got stuck in with my reading and have been loving it! One week I even read three books, which is very unlike me to get through books that quickly. But, I found some great reads that got me hooked, so I’ve got myself a little ‘book wish list’ on the go now. Without further ado, let’s look at a handful of the books which are on my wishlist for 2022.

The Sanatorium, by Sarah Pearse

I saw this in Waterstones whilst birthday shopping in York as part of their buy one get one half price offer and thought I’d give it a go. At this point, I hadn’t heard of it, but like with most things, once you spot it you can’t stop seeing or hearing about it! It reminds me of a show on Netflix about murders which took place in a hotel, as this one unravels unexplained disappearances at a sinister hotel (which was previously a sanatorium, hence the name). I was also pretty chuffed when I got a comment from Sarah Pearse herself on this Instagram post!

The Family Remains, by Lisa Jewell

I was obsessed with The Family Upstairs and finished it in less than one day. As soon as I turned that last page, I was straight online hoping there was a follow-up book. To my delight, you can now pre-book The Family Remains ahead of the July launch! This is a follow-up on The Family Upstairs, and I have high expectations.

The Night She Disappeared, by Lisa Jewell

The moment I read The Family Upstairs, I added almost every Lisa Jewell book to my birthday wishlist. Once I read the synopsis that this was based on a disappearance and a house in the woods, well, you can already tell it’s going to be a gripping read! I also got a comment from Lisa Jewell on this post too!

Verity, by Colleen Hoover

I asked for book recommendations on Instagram and one follower recommended this one. A lot of the great reads I’ve come across to date have been off the back of recommendations, so I trust this won’t disappoint either. When I first read the synopsis, I was thinking, “so this is just about a woman who ghost-writes for another author’s work?” – it sounded a little dull. But once I read into what to expect, I read about there being bone-chilling discoveries as she uncovers this author’s story, which got me interested again!

The Switch, by Beth O’Leary

I really enjoyed The Flatshare and it was a refreshing change from the usual crime/thrillers I’m used to reading. So, the next on the list that I saw by the author was The Switch. It gives me “Freaky Friday” vibes as a pensioner and her granddaughter swap places for eight weeks to explore new lives after becoming fed up with their own. 

The Other Passenger, by Louise Candlish

Another book recommended by a follower on Instagram. It’s a twisted thriller that shows how money can impact relationships, which isn’t a storyline I’ve read in recent reads, so nice to have a different plot to explore.
