Are you curious what books our Arlington readers checked out the most this year?
It’s no secret that Arlington is a community of readers. Here is a breakdown of combined adult eBook, eAudiobooks and print checkouts that made the top 25 list this year.
In 2022, we saw six titles rising above the 2,000-checkout mark starting with “Cloud Cuckoo Land” by Anthony Doerr; “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by Taylor Jenkins Reid; "The Paris Apartment" by Lucy Foley; "Malibu Rising" by Taylor Jenkins Reid; “The Last Thing He Told Me" by Laura Dave; and our most in-demand title, "The Lincoln Highway" by Amor Towles.
Arlington loves books by Taylor Jenkins Reid and Emily Henry and both adults and teens can’t get enough of Sarah J. Maas.
“The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” by Suzanne Collins made our young adult readers #1 spot for the most checked-out book in 2022 and our young readers continued to get mesmerized by J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series.
As we look forward to many new, wonderful releases in 2023, from big titles like Prince Harry’s “Spare” to exciting debuts like “Moonlight Over New Jessup” by Jamila Minnicks, we are grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve you — with our exciting book services, programs and diverse collections.
Curious which releases you might have missed this year? We have put together a curated list from our 2022 catalog of gems we believe should be on everybody’s reading list.
