FORMER president Barack Obama stuck to an annual tradition releasing a list of his favorites for the year 2022, including movies and books. His year-end lists have become an anticipated moment for many looking for the best recommendations.

“I always look forward to sharing my lists of favorite books, movies, and music with all of you,” Obama tweeted. “First up, here are some of the books I read and enjoyed this year. Let me know which books I should check out in 2023.”

Among his favourite written works, the former president listed ‘The School for Good Mothers’ by Jessamine Chan and ‘The Light We Carry’ by former first lady Michelle Obama, humorously noting, “I’m a bit biased on this one.”

Abdulrazak Gurnah who was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature made the cut with his latest historical novel set in Tanzania, Afterlives.

On his list of favorite movies, the Obama included ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘ and Descendant. Social media users quickly pointed out that Obama left off the list one of the highest grossing movies of the year: ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’.

The Marvel hit and sequel to 2018’s ‘Black Panther’ has come in second behind ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ in box office gross this year, bringing in more than $421 million at the domestic box office alone since its November release. ‘Black Panther’ made the list of Obama’s favourite movies in 2018.
