#TopTenTuesday: Most Anticipated Releases: June – December 2022

So, we’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week is actually a freebie and so I decided to do a topic that I don’t think I’ve done before: Most Anticipated Books Releasing In the Second Half of 2022

I currently have a whopping 236 books on my 2022 Releases list (I know that’s a lot) so it took a little time to sift through and narrow down the options to come up with a list of ten that I’m really looking forward to! These are a mix of romances and fantasies that I’m very keen to get my hands on as soon as they’re out!

The Make-Up Test by Jenny L. Howe
The Stand-Up Groomsman by Jackie Lau
Two Wrongs Make A Right by Chloe Liese
A Ghost in Shining Armor by Therese Beharrie
A Taste of Iron by Alexandra Rowland

Amari and the Great Game by B.B. Alston
Babel by R.F. Kuang
A Million to One by Adiba Jaigirdar
The Darkening by Sunya Mara
Strike the Zither by Joan He

What are the releases you’re looking forward to the most in the second half of 2022? Are any of these on your radar? I can’t wait to hear about the books you’re looking forward to (and adding them to my already massive list of books)!!! πŸ˜‚

    • This’ll be my first book by Beharrie as well and I was so excited when I managed to get an ARC for Shining Armor 😍 It really does sound so cute and I hope I love it, lol!

    • HAHAHA, yeah, I know, it’s definitely a lot and I’ve definitely outdone myself this year. My 2021 was like half that but I can’t seem to stop adding books this year. I’m really excited for Gold & Ironβ€”I’ve got high expectations! πŸ˜‚

  1. It’s so easy to make lists of books to read, I have hundreds on mine too, I just know I’ll never make a dent in reading them. With all the love for Babel I’m seeing, I’m definitely have to bump that up my wishlist, I think I’m just wary of buying a big hardback that I can’t even lift!

    • Haha, oh, I’m 100% sure I’ll not even make the smallest dent in my 2022 releases list πŸ˜‚ But it’s nice to know what’s coming out this year and to keep a very “loose” eye on these books! Babel is definitely getting so much hype and I’m quite excited for it but it is a chonkster and I have a feeling the physical copy will be pretty intimidating… I hope you enjoy it too! πŸ˜ƒ

    • There are so many amazing releases and it’s such a dilemma every year when I see more and more awesome books releasing. Too many books so not enough time! πŸ™ˆ I just got the widget for The Darkening and I’m so excited to read it! I hope you love it πŸ˜ƒ

  2. I’m absolutely looking forward to Amari! However, I’m getting more and more curious for Babel as well. Also, It Starts With Us, The Ballad of Never After en A Light In The Flame are high on my list.

  3. I have A Taste of Gold and Iron and Babel on my list too! And Liese’s book sounds good to me, I’ve seen the author’s books around a lot but have yet to read one of them.

    • I’m so excited for both those books! Liese is one of my favourite romance authors and I love her books so much. 😍 Definitely would recommend checking out her Bergman Brothers series!

    • The hype is so real for Babel! I really hope it lives up to it! I’m so excited for Gold and Ironβ€”I’ve been anticipating it from the beginning of the year and I absolutely cannot wait until it comes out. πŸ’œ

    • Omg, I’m so jelly! I can’t even see it on NG but if you do get it, I hope you love it! I love Chloe Liese and her Bergman Brothers series is one of my all-time favourite romance series. I hope you love the romances you add to your list, Leslie πŸ₯°

    • Have you read The Ones We’re Meant to Find? I didn’t end up jiving as much with Descendent of the Crane as I did with TOWMTF but I’m so excited for Strike the Zither! Yay, indeed 😍

  5. This has been an interesting theme and interesting to see which books show up on multiple lists. Babel and Fairy Tale by S King seem to be the most common. Though there are SO many others and that’s why I like these themes. BUT, my TBR list sure explodes! Thanks for the visit.

    • Babel is definitely one of the more popular ones this week. It’s very hyped πŸ˜‚ And I definitely agreeβ€”my TBR always grows exponentially every time these kind of lists are posted and it’s obvious with 250+ on my 2022 releases list, lol!

    • Babel is defo becoming one of the most hyped books this year which does make me a little nervous but I’m also very excited to read it. I hope you enjoy it and The Make-Up Test if you pick them up πŸ˜ƒ

  6. Looks like you have a lot of books to look forward to. Hope you will get and enjoy them all.

    And I hope you will be able to get a book by Orhan Pamuk. Would love to hear your opinion on him.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

  7. Ibqjbdwvjdw 236 is seriously INSANE but i am in awe of you for being able to actually KEEP TRACK OF SO MANY!!!! all my anticipated 2022 releases kind of are currently a jumble with multiple lists in my mind and some on the goodreads shelf and most of them are just bookmarked SO I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE ANYTHING IS ANYMORE 😭😭 I hope you’ll be able to get to all of these soon though AND LOVE THEM!! Also am highly excited for a million to one (MY I-AM-THE-MOST-DESPERATE-FOR 2022 RELEASE) and babel and strike the zither!! Fingers crossed they shall live up to all the expectations AND CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS ON ALL OF THEM!!!

    • HAHAHA, I KNOW! It’s wild that my list has exploded so quickly and I didn’t even notice until I went on GR to figure out what to do for this week’s list πŸ˜‚ I’m honestly not really keeping track of them just adding the ones I like to my list and then adding them to the 2022 releases list right away. Ngl, most of the time I 100% forget what’s coming out this year even WITH that list on-hand! I’m such a numpty 🀣 I’ve really been trying to be more organised with my GR list this year though! I hope Babel and Strike the Zither live up to the hype for both of us as well. Happy reading, Anoushka! πŸ₯°

    • Ooh, I’m a huge Chloe Liese fan. I just love all her romances and her Bergman Brothers series is probably one of my favourite romance series ever? So I would defo recommend reading them too! So excited for this one too though πŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy her books if you do read them, Destiny! πŸ’œ

  8. Liese’s book made my list, as well, even though I know I probably won’t get to it until I finish the Bergman Brothers series. πŸ˜‰ I do have an ARC of The Make-Up Test. It sounds so cute! Happy reading this week!
