10 Books To Read In New Year's Eve 2022

The year is finally coming to an end. I still can’t believe that time passed by so quickly. It’s almost 2022! What are your plans for New Year? How will you bid goodbye to the year 2021 and welcome 2022? You might have celebration plans with your family or friends (or both). Everyone has, and so do I. But what special can we do to make the last day of 2021, the New Year’s Eve 2022, even more joyous? I’d suggest we all sit back and read a book (or two!). In this article, I suggest 10 Such Books To Read On New Year’s Eve 2022.

Looking back at it now, I didn’t do much this year except for expanding my book collection. You see, it wasn’t a habit of mine to welcome the New Year with some excellent and cozy books, but it has become one from the past two years. I never thought it would be so relaxing to end the year this way! With winter at its peak and the celebration mood on, it feels ever so euphoric to sit in your warm blanket comfortably and read a romantic novel.

Since the New Year is considered the most romantic time of the year (even more than valentine’s day), it only makes sense for us to be reading cute, romantic novels and thinking about our special ones. This December, tons of sweet romantic books have been released, and some are scheduled to be released. It seems like they’re made just for reading on New Year’s Eve, especially the last week of December is going to be a pretty busy week for us readers and loads of excellent books are ready to explore for that New Year’s Eve.

Now, without wasting any more time, get ready with your pen and papers to start making your read-list right now along with me as I suggest some from my read-list.
