Battle of the Books - 2022

I follow a few book blogger on Youtube. Recently, I found a new blogger, Books with Emily Fox with an interesting approach for choosing the best book read in 2022. She wrote down all her read book on a slip of paper, put it in a jar, and randomly drew book titles to arrange them two by two. Of each group she chose the best, grouped them in two by two, etc. That means that you sometimes have to choose from two favourite books, or two least favourite books and let them continue to the next round.



I used a random number generator and ended up with ...? Just to keep the excitement up, I will show you the titles that ended up as the last eight. The bold ones went on the the next round. As you see three of my favourite books by Maja Lunde came this far. I must admit that all of these were my favourites, so lucky with the random numbers.


Jenkins Reid, Taylor - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Von Schirach, Ferdinand - Fallet Collini (Der Fall Collini/The Collini Case)

Lunde, Maja - Binas historia (The History of Bees)

Lunde, Maja - The End Of The Ocean


Kvensler, Ulf - Sarek (The Couple's Trip)

Wung-Sung, Jesper - Kvinna sedd bakifrån (Woman Seen From the Back)


O’Farrell, Maggie - Hamnet

Lunde, Maja - Przewalski's Horse


Next round


Von Schirach, Ferdinand - Fallet Collini (Der Fall Collini/The Collini Case)

Lunde, Maja - Binas historia (The History of Bees)

Wung-Sung, Jesper - Kvinna sedd bakifrån (Woman Seen From the Back)

Lunde, Maja - Przewalski's Horse


Last round


Von Schirach, Ferdinand - Fallet Collini (Der Fall Collini/The Collini Case)

Lunde, Maja - Przewalski's Horse


In the end it stood between two favourite books, and it was difficult to choose one. I did go for The Collini Case by Ferdinand Von Schirach, mainly because of its depth in human actions and sufferings.
