2022 has been a year of change for the UK. Three Prime Ministers, the loss of our longest reigning monarch and the ascension of King Charles III. We've also see big changes here on LoveReading, in July we launched as an online bookshop with social purpose, working to deliver 10% off RRPs for all of our customers while also delivering 25% of the cover price of every physical book sold to UK schools to help them stock their libraries and engender a life-long love of reading in children. We know times are tight at the moment, and we hope working to offer support and funding to schools nationwide will make a positive impact on the lives of our children.

The thing that hasn't changed is that we've spent a year blissfully surrounded by and shouting about a bevy of brilliant books. We can't read every book published but by jove, we've given it our best shot once again. BookTok has continued to flourish, getting the likes of Ali Hazelwood, Colleen Hoover and Taylor Jenkins Reid in front of so many. And, year in year out, we're by your side, sharing in the hype and reading hundreds of books out of the thousands that have been released this year to bring you curated highly recommended titles right across the genres and across format, month in month out.

We have our Fiction and Non-Fiction Books of the Month, Debuts, and of course our Editorial Expert Liz Robinson has been here with her own personal monthly recommendations. Our Book Club Recommendations and questions have grown, offering reading groups up to date reading recommendations and discussion questions to spark many animated book conversations.

Throughout it all our Star Books selection has been slowly growing as we add the brightest examples of brilliant books, until finally the time of year arrives for them to become our Books of the Year. So keep scrolling to explore our favourite reads of the year, we're certain you'll love these books as much as we do, and if you haven't already, dive in and enjoy! 

Don't forget you can buy them, at the click of a button, from our online store, with 10% off RRPs and make a difference to schools across the UK.
