My To Be Read List for 2022

My TBR List for 2022

So little time and so much to read! There are just 4 months left for 2022, and my To Be Read books can last me till the end of next year. But I did a smart thing and selected a few from the lot that I aim to finish by the end of this year. So here is my TBR book list for the rest of 2022.

Krishna Prophecy by Dinesh Veera

Krishna Prophecy

I love mythological fiction, and this one looks promising. The story blends mystery with history and the past with the present and that sounds highly irresistible. There’s another book by the author named Shiva Origins that I will pick if I like this one.

Ashramed by Dahlia Sen Oberoi


The storyline and the book cover indicate that it is a fun and light read. Besides, it has received great reviews from many, including singers Shaan and Shuba Mudgal.

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Everything, Everything

I wanted to read this ever since I came to know about it. But other books pushed it out of my mind. Now that I have finally bought the book, I am planning to read it in the coming months.

Grandmother’s Tale by R. K. Narayan

Grandmother's Tale

R.K. Narayan is one of my favourite authors and this book looks like it is filled with all the good and invaluable things in the world. Plus, the beautiful sketches by R.K. Laxman make reading the ageless stories so much more enjoyable.

One Indian Girl by Chetan Bhagat

One Indian Girl

This is the only book by Chetan Bhagat that I have put off reading until now because of some very negative reviews about it. Okay, all Bhagat books receive flak, but this one had some really bad reviews. But after I found out that a movie is being based on it, I got interested in it again. I hope it turns out to be an entertaining and enriching read and not slow and boring like Revolution 2020.

The Enchanted Castle by E. Nesbit

The Enchanted Castle

I have not read a single classics novel (I attempted reading Wuthering Heights several times but failed to go past a few pages each time) and this is my first one. It had a certain pull that attracted me and I decided to break my norm of not touching classics. As it is in a genre I like, I am hoping it turns out to be an enjoyable read.

They Never Get Caught by Ruskin Bond

They Never Get Caught

This is a short story collection in the crime, horror, and mystery genre. The book features stories by Ruskin Bond, Amelia B Edwards, Alice Perrin and more. The collection is edited and compiled by Ruskin Bond.

Ladies’ Tailor by Priya Hajela

Ladies' Tailor

I was looking for some fiction stories set around the time of India’s independence when a 15th August Harper Collins newsletter carried this recommendation. It is a story about a group of refugees who are trying to gather pieces of their lives after the deadly partition.

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

The Girl Who Drank the Moon

I was recently searching for fantasy books when I saw this one. It is a 2016 bestseller but I had never heard of this one before. The title was enough to make me want to read it.

Dopehri by Pankaj Kapur


This book sounds intriguing and gives the impression of having an old-world charm to it, which I adore. I heard about this book in an episode of The Kapil Sharma Show. Yes, even the unlikeliest of places can recommend good books to you.

My goal for the remainder of 2022 is to read all these books or more if time permits. This is the first time I have set a reading goal for myself and I want to see whether I can achieve it or not, or surpass it. Have you set any reading goals for yourself? If not, I suggest you do it now.
