Pan Macmillan books on Better Reading’s Top 100 Books for 2022

Better Reading’s Top 100 Books for 2022 has been announced, and we are thrilled to see fifteen Pan Macmillan Australia books on the list! Special mention goes to The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and Devotion by Hannah Kent who both made the top 10, ranked third and eighth respectively.

Each year, Australians have their say about which books and authors they love to read in the Better Reading Top 100. It has become a well-loved annual event that readers vote for, celebrate and then discuss. It is a true reflection of what Australians read, featuring a mix of crime, women’s general fiction, literary fiction and classics.

To see the full list this year, head to Better Reading’s site here.

In order, here are the fifteen books that made this year’s list, with congratulations to all our incredible authors:
