I love a good series. Like ... love. I would prefer to immerse myself in a series than a standalone. Worlds are more well thought, more character development ... you just can't get that in a standalone unless its a super long book. Below are my top 10 series' reads of 2022. You will notice there are some combined ones, but that's because they are spin-offs, and I consider it one big series.
