Most Anticipated 2022 Book Releases

A new year of publishing is almost upon us! While 2021 has sucked for many reasons and I'm hesitant to hope that 2022 will magically be so much better, I am looking forward to a lot in the new year. More specifically, I'm looking forward to a lot of exciting books. There's plenty of backlist titles I want to finally read but there's also tons of upcoming releases I've got my eye on. I have a list of dozens of new releases that interest me, but today I've compiled my top seven most anticipated releases. While these aren't in a specific order, I am working up to my most anticipated at the end. Let's go ahead and dive in! 

Up first, I want to talk about The River of Silver by S.A. Chakraborty. This is a compilation of a bunch of stories from the Daevabad world. The Daevabad trilogy is one of my favorites and I'm so excited to be getting a lot more bonus content. This one first releases on audio in March but is also getting a physical release in the fall, which I am quite excited for. (I even already have my copy preordered)

I am also looking forward to Extasia by Claire Legrand. Claire is one of my favorite authors and I'm intrigued about her new upcoming horror novel. While I'm not a big horror fan, I find YA horror to be a lot easier for me to read and I am excited to see what this one is like. Claire has written a couple spooky books before with good reviews so I hope that this will be a good one for me.

Up next, I have Portrait of a Thief by Grace D. Li. I saw this floating around on Twitter a few times and, once I read the synopsis, I knew I had to have it. This is about a heist and a crew of characters as well as a critique of colonialism. The reviews have been great for it so far and my excitement just keeps growing the closer to release that we get. I am quite excited to read it and have already preordered a copy. 

I am looking forward to the next From Blood and Ash book, The War of Two Queens, by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This is the fourth novel in the series and I am eager to see what happens after the cliffhanger in book three. Now, I do have the spin-off prequel series to dive into while I wait but I do have to say that I am currently more excited for this one than the prequels. 

Boyfriend Material was one of my favorite books of last year and I am so excited that it is getting a sequel. Husband Material by Alexis Hall doesn't come out until later in the summer but I have been looking forward to it ever since it was announced months ago. This is a queer romcom series set in the UK and I've fallen in love with the characters so much since I read it for the first time. However, I hope this book doesn't contain a breakup trope because I'm not sure if I could handle these characters being separated.  

A Tempest of Tea by Hafsah Faizal is another one that I am looking forward to. I have not yet read Hafsah's other series, We Hunt the Flame, though it is on my TBR for January. However, I am still incredibly excited for A Tempest of Tea later in the year. This was pitched as Peaky Blinders meets King Arthur with vampires and contains a heist! All of that just sounds amazing to me and I can't wait until it releases. 
Up next, I have Foul Lady Fortune by Chloe Gong. This is the spin-off/sequel to the These Violent Delights duology that just concluded last month. I absolutely loved this duology and cannot wait to see not only who this spin-off is about but also more of this world. The only thing I really know is that there's a marriage of convenience and the out-of-context snippets Chloe has posted online are amazing. 

Then I have The Weeping Tide by Amanda Foody. This comes out very soon into the new year and I am so incredibly excited. It's the second in a middle grade series, the first of which is on my top books of 2021 list. I loved the first book so much and find so much comfort in this series. This next book is going to expand the world, give us more character time, and will no doubt be an exciting adventure.  

Lastly, my most anticipated release of the new year is House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas, the second book in the Crescent City series. It comes out in just two months and I'm quite excited to see what happens next after two years of waiting. I enjoyed this world a lot the first time around and I'm eager to reread the first book to see what I've forgotten since the first time I read it. 

Thanks for reading!
