Most Anticipated Releases of 2022: April to June

Spring is here, and it’s time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about in the months of April to June! Not only is it fun to organize my reading and to make lists, they also have the added benefit of focusing my attention to the highly anticipated releases that I’d like to check out. Every quarter I’ll be putting together a post of my “must reads”, and while I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read them all, hopefully I can get to most of them (and also put some new books on people’s radars).

  1. I’m excited for so many of these! My list will be posted tomorrow. I think for me, May is especially crowded with so many anticipated books!


  2. I can’t wait for Tear Down the Throne! And I know I’ll listen to it as I think it will be Lauren Fortgang reading it.


  3. Or Else makes me immediately want to go and look it up. Black Tide is one I’m looking forward to also. That Kelley Armstrong one too… hmmm…


  4. There’s a lot of great looking books here, and though Fevered Star is the only one on my immediate list there are many I’d love to try. Every time I see a new book by Guy Gavriel Kay it reminds me I need to try one of the books of his I’ve been collecting. I have very high hopes by now, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed I’ve not waited so long that I’ve developed unreasonable expectations. 🙂


  5. I so can’t wait for Book Of Night, if I only let myself get one Book this year it would be that one!! I adored Black Sun so definitely want to check out the sequel too though and Stardust Thief sounds incredible. Ooh & Our Crooked Hearts.
    I’m also really excited for Blood Trials, Juniper & Thorn and Final Strife. And too many others actually looking at my tbr 🙈
    I hope you get a chance to read & adore all of these
