This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Most Anticipated Books Releasing In the Second Half of 2022. This was actually harder to come up with than I expected. There are always lots of books I’m interested in but figuring out which ten are my most anticipated was a challenge. Here are the ten I decided on.
The Wonderland Trials by Sara Ella: While this is an anticipated release, I’m a little worried because I didn’t like Sara Ella’s other fairy tale retelling. But I have high hopes and want to give it a chance.
Empty Smiles by Katherine Arden: I feel like I’ve been waiting for this book for forever even though it’s only been a few years. I’m so excited to see how this series comes together. Also, that cover is super creepy.
Furysong by Rosaria Munda: This is probably my most anticipated release of the year. I need answers. I want happiness. I want dragons. I just need it ASAP.
Wishtress by Nadine Brandes: I love Nadine Brandes’ books! I already read an eARC of this book, but I can’t wait to have the final hardback copy in my hands.
Rust in the Root by Justina Ireland: I’ve been waiting for a new historical book by Justina Ireland. I was hoping there would be another Dread Nation book, but I’ll take anything at this point.
Spells for Forgetting by Adrienne Young: I’m excited to see what Adrienne Young does with an adult book!
Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng: I will always read whatever Celeste Ng publishes.
Cursed by Marissa Meyer: After reading Gilded and realizing it wasn’t a standalone, I need this book.
Saint by Adrienne Young: Even though I only read Fable and Namesake last year, I feel like I’ve been waiting a long time for a book about Saint. I am so excited this book is coming out!
The Shattered City by Lisa Maxwell: Finally! The end of The Last Magician series. This is another one that I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for it to release.
