My anticipated releases of 2022 // July, August & September

You’re never going to believe this but I’m socialising this week. For a whole 9 days! My friend from uni flew to Spain to stay with me and despite the fact that I’m bone-deep exhausted because work + sun + actually doing stuff = tired, I’m having a great time.

Because of this though I’ve not had time to write and so while I’m here today to share my third and almost final round of anticipated 2022 releases, please let it be known that I might miss one or two just because I’m short on both time and energy.

January, February & March // April, May & June.


July

The Society For Soulless Girls by L.K Steven

Release Date: July 7th

A couple of years ago The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven was my favourite book of the year that I’ve since re-read a couple of times. Over the years I’ve been following the author, even though I didn’t like her sophomore novel, and so I feel a weird sense of pride revolving around this book.

Not only that but this book is a sapphic take on Jeckyl & Hyde with a supernatural twist. Does the original have supernatural elements? I have no clue because I’ve never read/watched it but I will definitely be reading this because I pre-ordered it and it’s sat waiting for me on my Kindle.

My anticipated releases of 2022 // April, May & June

Howdy!

I’m meant to be face-timing my friend who’s currently on Study Abroad in America in a couple hours but I’m already getting sleepy. I need to do something to wake me up. My solution: making a cup of tea (that has caffiene right?) and talking about some more of my anticipated 2022 releases!!

So far this year I’ve read one of the seven books I’ve already talked about. In my defence: two of them aren’t out yet (as I’m writing this), and one of them is on my immediate TBR.

Jaunary, February & March


April

Portrait of a Thief by Grace D. Li

Release Date: April 5th

The only heist book I’ve ever read is Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (and I guess maybe One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston) which in my eyes is far too low of a number.

That’s were Portrait of a Thief comes in! This book is all about stealing back priceless pieces of art from Western museums when Harvard senior Will is approached with an impossible and illegal job offer.

I’m really excited about this one. It’s such an interesting plot and I’m guessing it’s going to be jam-packed with historical context which will be new to me so I’m looking forward to learning alongside enjoying a heist story.

I’ve become obsessed with romance novels.

Once upon a time I said over and over that romance was my least favourite genre and that I especially never thought I’d like Adult Romance. Well, well, well how the turntables because fast forward a couple of years and here I am!

I really milked the romance cow back in February and I kinda feel bad about still going on the romance train BUT i realised I’ve not talked about up and coming New Adult romance books I’m interested in reading so I’m going to do that today!


Terms & Conditions by Lauren Asher – February 24th

I’ve been seeing people reading Terms & Conditions over the last week since it’s release and I am so jealous!

The Dreamland Billionaire’s series follows the grandsons of the fictional version of Disney. Each grandson is given a task, I guess you could say, they have to complete in order to secure their shares in the company. The second book follows the eldest brother Declan who has to marry to secure his position and so he marries his assistant Iris.

I loved the first book in this series which I read late last year. I did a whole review on it in my grumpy/sunshine post if you want to check that out. I’d like to say for the record that I am anti-real-billionaire’s but fictional-billionaires are very fun to read about!

My anticipated releases of 2022 // January, February & March

Hi and helloπŸ‘‹

I’m back in uni mode which means, despite only having to go to uni for a couple hours a day, I feel like I barely have time to write blog posts and read. How does this happen? Just cause I have to feed myself again!

Anyways. I have to leave for uni in an hour and I’m gonna try and bang out my first round of 2022 anticipated releases. I’m always getting distracted by the tiniest things though so there’s a chance I’m gonna have to squeeze out time later tonight to finish this off. Wish me luck in not getting off track!!


January

Anatomy: A Love Story by Dana Schwartz

Release Date: January 18th

It took me longer then I would like to admit to realise that this is not a uniquely illustrated anatomic heart, but instead a women and her big ass dress!!

This book follows a women who wants to be a surgeon in a time where women are still expected to leave their brain-cells at the door and take care of the kids.

She strikes a deal with a renowned doctor whose lectures she was kicked out of: if she can pass the medical examination on her own, the university has to allow her to enrol. (and I thought my uni application process was stressful!). To get access to corpses to study, she teams up with a grave robber who has his own problems such as his friends going missing.

This is giving “Stalking Jack the Ripper” vibes but with less murder (maybe, idk there could be some murder), and hopefully I enjoy it more then I did that book.

My most anticipated releases of 2021 // October, November & December

Helloo, happy Wednesday :))

I do not want to go to work. Like I really don’t want to go to work tonight. I want to curl up in bed with a nice cup of tea or a glass of lemonade and read or watch telly. Instead I’ll be trying to keep my sanity at “pound a pint” night.

Until then though, I’m clinging onto what little time I have before I have to get ready and go out into the cold, and thought I’d talk a little about my last batch of anticipated releases for 2021.


October

Kingdom of the Cursed by Kerri Maniscalco

It feels like only yesterday I read Kingdom of the Wicked. I had little to no expectations for this series but ended up loving it a whole lot.

While I haven’t had much look when it comes to enjoying Maniscalco’s other “Jack the Ripper” series (I’m only carrying on for Thomas), I really loved the characters and atmosphere of this duology and can’t wait to read the sequel.

Release Date: October 26th

My most anticipated releases of 2021 // July, August & September.

Hi, hey hello and welcome to my blog!!

It’s that time of year again where I say “here are some new releases that I really wanna read asap” even though we all know the likelihood of me reading these books any time soon is very slim. It’s a game we play a couple of times a year, we all know the drill by now, it’s cool.

I’m kind of strapped for time today. What with breakfast to cure my mums hangover this morning, a couple of drinks with friends this afternoon and then me organising a Shrek movie marathon with my friend later tonight, it’s a good job I only have 6 books to talk about.

I say “only” six books as if that’s not more then I read in a month but I digress. Here are the up and coming releases I would really like to get to as soon as possible (in theory).

January, February & March // April, May & June.


July

The Right Side of Reckless by Whitney D. Grandison

For some reason it was the title that first grabbed my attention for this book and I’m not sure why but I’m glad it did. I actually was accepted to be part of the blog-tour for this book so out of all these books, I will actually be reading this soon.

This is a YA contemporary romance between a guy who breaks every rule he can, and a “good girl”. I don’t know much more then this but I feel like you can’t really go wrong with this trope and I think I’m going to really enjoy it. I guess we’ll see when it comes tome reviewing it.

Release Date: July 13th 2021

My most anticipated releases of 2021 // January, February & March

Helloooo, welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

It’s that time of year again where I share my most anticipated releases for the coming year. Once again I’m going to be sharing this list every three months starting off with January, February and March.

In past years I’ve talked about every single book that’s grabbed my attention even just slightly, this time around I’m going to try and narrow that to books I actually foresee myself reading. I want to have read most of these by December so I think the less books I talk about the better.


January

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

I’ve seen this be pegged as “Percy Jackson meets the Hunger Games” but I became even more interested in reading this after I read a chapter sampler.

The premise of this book is that every couple of years the Agon begins; the Greek Gods become mortal and hunted. Whoever kills them gains their powers and immortality, at least for the next seven years.

I haven’t read anything else from Bracken since The Darkest minds so I’m interested in reading this one.

Release Date: January 6th


The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe

Apparently this is being adapted into a film starring Millie Bobby Brown, I didn’t know this before adding it to my TBR. I was actually interested in this because of the cover. It’s super simple but I really like the design.

This book is about a con artist who is trying to live a normal life but she’s having a really bad day. Her ex walks in on her and her girlfriend and then, to make matters worse, she’s kidnapped during a bank heist.

LGBT+ characters anda bank heist. I’m ready for this.

Release Date: January 26th

Anticipated Releases of 2020 // October – November – December

Hi and howdy, welcome to my blog πŸ™‚

I was procrastinating, I was kind of being lazy, ya know how it is, so I am very, very late with my fourth and final (thank god) list of anticipated releases for 2020 but here it is!!!!

I’m skipping my usual babbling cause this post needs to hurry up and get written. Also I have cramp in my knee and the sooner I can go sprawl on my bed the better lol


October

We Were Restless Things by Cole Nagamatsu

This book has been on my radar for months now for one reason and one reason only: this ridiculously pretty cover. I mean how dare a cover be this aesthetically pleasing.

As for the actually plot I don’t know much. Somebody died, drowned I think and … there’s magical realism and LGBT+ characters.

Sometimes you just need to be vain and judge a book by it’s cover and that’s what I plan to do with this one.

Publication Date: October 6th 2020

Anticipated Releases of 2020 // April-May

Hi, hey, hello, happy Friday and welcome to my blog!

Today feels like a good day. After staying awake till past 3am last night stressing over my grades I woke up to find I’d only failed 1 class which is miles better then I expected.

So today I’m keeping up with that good mood and talking all about upcoming releases. I’ve done one of these already talking about releases from January to March. So far I’ve read none of those books πŸ˜‚

Girls Save the World in This One by Ash Parsons

51037654._SX318_SY475_

Do I know what this book is about? No. But do I like the look of this cover and the sound of the title.

From what I can gather this book follows three best friends who go to ZombieCon, a convention all about Zombies but things get a little crazy when actual zombies invade and try and eat everyone’s brains.

Publication Date: April 14th

 


The Dec of Omens by Christine Lynn Herman

40204193._SY475_This is the sequel to The Devouring Grey which I actually read recently and enjoyed.

Obviously I won’t say much about the plot of this sequel because “Spoilers Sweetie” but this series has a real old school YA paranormal feel to it with its plot of a small town, monster in the woods and four founding families with magical powers.

I’m really looking forward to this series. I have an Endgame OTP and there’s someone I want to see kick some serious ass.

Publication Date: April 21st Continue reading “Anticipated Releases of 2020 // April-May”
