The Kobo bookselling team selected the best new books in fiction and non-fiction. Editors’ picks in romance and other genres will be released in the coming days.

When it comes to annual book rankings, most book lovers are aware of the best books picked by Amazon editors or editorial teams of leading book websites.

If you are a Kobo user, you don’t have to check out the best books picked elsewhere so that you can go back to Kobo to browse for titles that you have added to your wish list.

The easiest thing you can do is check out the best books that were selected this year by the Kobo editorial team.

So far, Kobo revealed one Best of 2022 list. Next lists, including romance picks, will be published by the end of the year.

The first list includes Kobo’s Top 20 ebooks & audiobooks of 2022 in fiction and non-fiction.

What makes this list special is that it combines both ebooks and audiobooks.

The reason is simple: opposite to, for instance Kindle, you can get in the Kobo store either an ebook or audiobook version of a digital publication – and seamlessly enjoy it in a single Kobo app for your tablet or smartphone.

What’s included in the Top 20 Kobo Ebooks and Audiobooks of 2022?

You will find here All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir, a heart-wrenching novel steeped in “teenage longing to escape a stifling small town.”

The audiobook version of All My Rage, narrated by Deepti Gupta, Kamran R. Khan, and Kausar Mohammed, was also named one of the best audiobooks of 2022 on Audible.

Matthew Perry’s audiobook, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, touches on his pre-stardom childhood, including a successful stint in competitive tennis, and the struggles he faced in adulthood.

Babel by R. F. Kuang is a wickedly clever work of speculative fiction. It plays with the form of the academic novel while weaving in elements of fantasy.

Which book on the list is your favorite?
