Insider Today

There are so many ways to discover a great book, but the New York Times Best Sellers list has compiled the most popular fiction, nonfiction, and children's books from vendors across the country for almost a century and has become a measure of success for writers everywhere. 

Titles that reach the coveted #1 spot are usually highly anticipated releases from beloved authors, sequels to which readers have been counting down, or juicy celebrity memoirs. But with the rise of influencer recommendations on platforms like TikTok and Instagram, books published years prior still make appearances again and again, like "It Ends With Us" , which was published in 2016 but has been a #1 New York Times Bestseller for nine weeks so far in 2022. 

The full list is posted weekly on the New York Times website , but we collected some of the best new fiction and nonfiction books to hold the #1 spot so far in 2022.

The ‘New York Times’ Names Its Best Books of 2022

BY Michael Schaub • Nov. 28, 2022

Share via Facebook

The New York Times unveiled its list of the 10 best books of 2022, with titles by Hernan Diaz, Jennifer Egan, and Ed Yong among those making the cut.

Diaz’s Trust was one of five fiction books to make the list. The newspaper called the novel, about a wealthy New York couple in the early 20th century, “an exhilarating pursuit.” Earlier this year, the novel was the winner of the Kirkus Prize for fiction.

Egan’s The Candy House , a sequel to her Pulitzer Prize–winning A Visit From the Goon Squad , also made the fiction list, with the Times calling it “a glorious, hideous fun house.” The other honored works of fiction were Claire-Louise Bennett’s Checkout 19 , Barbara Kingsolver’s Demon Copperhead , and  Namwali Serpell’s The Furrows .

In nonfiction, Yong was honored for An Immense World: How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us , his book about animal perception. The Times praised Yong’s book, which was a finalist for the Kirkus Prize in nonfiction, as “a terrific storyteller.”

Linda Villarosa’s Under the Skin: The Hidden Toll of Racism on American Lives and on the Health of Our Nation made the nonfiction list, along with Fintan O’Toole’s We Don’t Know Ourselves , Rachel Aviv’s Strangers to Ourselves: Unsettled Minds and the Stories That Make Us , and Hua Hsu’s Stay True .

Michael Schaub, a journalist and regular contributor to NPR, lives near Austin, Texas.
