As 2022 comes to an end, I thought to look into different media and explore what was most popular and best selling in certain areas. As a new librarian, I find it important to be knowledgeable in popular culture and materials. Here is a list of 2022 best books, film, music, video games and board games from various sources.

Powell’s “Books that got us through 2022” 

Personally, my favorite book I read this year was The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. My friends and I loved discussing the book together which was a fun experience. I first checked out the board game Azul through the library. My fiancé and I loved it so much we bought it for ourselves to play with friends and family when we often get together. We also loved The Bear and had a great time binging it in a few days!

What were some of your favorites this year?
