10. Surrender by Bono

Published by Random House

Surrender is an immersive Biography/Autobiography narrated by the author about Bono's journey and uprise through the music industry and the experiences he had while in the band U2 and during his 20+ years of activism. This book is described as intimate, immersive, and remarkable. The description on States "Writing with candor, self-reflection, and humor, Bono opens the aperture on his life - and the family, friends, and faith that have sustained challenged, and shaped him." - Amazon.

Bono released Surrender on November 1, 2022. Surrender is not Bono's only book he also wrote other books such as On The Move, Beautiful Day, Angle of Harlem, and many more. Bono is a very interesting person with so many experiences, that's why I think it is in the top 10 Best-Selling books of 2022.

9. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Ugly Love is a strange romance book that has characters overcoming past challenges. Colleen Hoover intrigues her reader with her characters but mainly her themes. Her storytelling helps the reader understand the characters and empathize with them. I believe this is why she has many best-selling books later on this list this last year. A lot of her books are rated for mature audiences so if your faint of heart I wouldn't recommend much of her books to you but if you enjoy this type of novel it would be a great book to get lost in for hours.

8. Verity by Colleen Hoover

This book like the last was written by Colleen Hoover. It is also a romance novel but it's also mixed in with crime and thrills. Many say it is a little gruesome and has some parts with graphic abuse and sexual encounters. says "It's a dark and disturbing, twisted book featuring graphic depictions of abuse, so definitely pay heed to the trigger warnings before picking it up." The book is dark but interesting and intriguing. The book is recommended for ages 17+ because of its twisted premise but if you like the romance/crime genre this book is for you.

7. Where the Crawdads Sing

The idea of this book was sparked by many years of conversation work in Africa. says "years of controversial (and possibly violent) conservation work in Africa, offered a seductive blend of romance, murder mystery and feral coming-of-age that, along with a nod from Reese Witherspoon's book club, helped sell over 12m copies".

Delia Owens is evidently an amazing writer who allows the reader to immerse themselves in her writing. As said above this book is about romance, murder, and growth through childhood. IMDb rates this book a 7.1/10 which is decent and 12 million people found this book interesting so if you like crime and romance you might like this book.

John Grisham released The Boys from Biloxi in October of 2022.

Over 300 million people bought this book and most rate it exceptionally high at a solid 4.2/5. Personally, I think this would be an extraordinary fiction novel to read and many others do so if you like thrillers I would suggest checking out this book or others from John Grisham.

1. It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover being the amazing writer she is was bound to make the top 5. She didn't just make the top 5, she did it twice! Not to mention in 1st place. People just can't get enough of her elite storytelling and immersive novels. It starts with us is the first part of the two-part book series including It Starts with Us (this book) and It Ends with Us from earlier in this list. If you think her writing is interesting you can check out some of her other books that weren't on this list like Thing We Never Got Over (, Things We Hide from the Light (, Regretting You ( ), and many more.

Being the first part of the two-part series alongside It Ends With Us, this book shares its immersion and magnetizing storytelling. To give you a loose understanding of the book's premise, it includes charming characters who must go through obstacles to find success. Hoover added an amazing theme with this book of self-acceptance and determination.

Published on October 18, 2022, and being so popular just shows you how good of a writer Colleen Hoover is. The day the book was published it sold an astonishing 800,000 copies, on that one Tuesday! It Starts With Us sold 2.5 million copies on just the first printing run. This 336-page book sounds like the right read to me, what do you think?
