The Hearts Invisible Furies by Jon Boyne is my favorite book of 2022. Exceptional character development and an amazing story. I continue to recommend it to everyone.

The Measure has been my favorite book of 2022, so far! I highly recommend it. It is a book that is thought-provoking and leads to interesting discussions--- great pick for a book club.
