Most Anticipated Releases of 2022 – Part Two!

A few days ago I shared a few of the books that are being released in 2022 that I am excited about. There are so many that I spilt the post into two. You can find part one of my most anticipated releases of 2022 here.

Today’s post is going to be the second and final part of my most anticipated releases of 2022. Here they are!

Family of Liars by E. Lockhart

A windswept private island off the coast of Massachusetts.
A hungry ocean, churning with secrets and sorrow.
A fiery, addicted heiress. An irresistible, unpredictable boy.
A summer of unforgivable betrayal and terrible mistakes.

Welcome back to the Sinclair family.
They were always liars. 

I cannot for life of me remember when it was that I read We Were Liars but I know it left me with my mouth wide open in shock. So, I am beyond excited to have a prequel and to see how the Sinclair family came to be liars. I will be reading this one as soon as possible!

Forging Silver into Stars by Brigid Kemmerer

Magic has been banished in the land of Syhl Shallow for as long as best friends Jax and Callyn can remember. They once loved the stories of the powerful magesmiths and mythical scravers who could conjure fire or control ice, but now they’ve learned that magic only leads to danger: magic is what killed Callyn’s parents, leaving her alone to raise her younger sister. Magic never helped Jax, whose leg was crushed in an accident that his father has been punishing him for ever since. Magic won’t save either of them when the tax collector comes calling, threatening to take their homes if they can’t pay what they owe.

Meanwhile, Jax and Callyn are astonished to learn magic has returned to Syhl Shallow — in the form of a magesmith who’s now married to their queen. Now, the people of Syhl Shallow are expected to allow dangerous magic in their midst, and no one is happy about it.

Brigid Kemmerer is one of the only authors that will ever get me to read fantasy books. I struggle to make sense of fantasy worlds but I never struggle when it is a book by Brigid. I love the way she tells stories and I’m so excited for a new story set in the Cursebreakers world!

Under One Roof by Ali Hazelwood

Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn….

As an environmental engineer, Mara knows all about the delicate nature of ecosystems. They require balance. And leaving the thermostat alone. And not stealing someone else’s food. And other rules Liam, her detestable big-oil lawyer of a roommate, knows nothing about. Okay, sure, technically she’s the interloper. Liam was already entrenched in his aunt’s house like some glowering grumpy giant when Mara moved in, with his big muscles and kissable mouth just sitting there on the couch tempting respectable scientists to the dark side…but Helena was her mentor and Mara’s not about to move out and give up her inheritance without a fight.

The problem is, living with someone means getting to know them. And the more Mara finds out about Liam, the harder it is to loathe him…and the easier it is to love him.

Ali Hazelwood is a romance author who I feel deserves all the hype in the world. I am so excited to read this novella and get more of her writing in my life! This is one of three novella’s that she is releasing next year as well!

Café Con Lychee by Emery Lee

Theo Mori wants to escape. Leaving Vermont for college means getting away from working at his parents’ Asian American café and dealing with their archrivals’ hopeless son Gabi who’s lost the soccer team more games than Theo can count.

Gabi Moreno is miserably stuck in the closet. Forced to play soccer to hide his love for dance and iced out by Theo, the only openly gay guy at school, Gabi’s only reprieve is his parents’ Puerto Rican bakery and his plans to take over after graduation.

But the town’s new fusion café changes everything. Between the Mori’s struggling shop and the Moreno’s plan to sell their bakery in the face of the competition, both boys find their dreams in jeopardy. Then Theo has an idea—sell photo-worthy food covertly at school to offset their losses. 

An enemies to lovers story that features a lot around food? Yes please! I have heard so many amazing things about Emery Lee’s writing and I cannot wait to give this one a read to see what I think!

Stuck with You by Ali Hazelwood

Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn…
 
Logically, Sadie knows that civil engineers are supposed to build bridges. However, as a woman of STEM she also understands that variables can change, and when you are stuck for hours in a tiny New York elevator with the man who broke your heart, you earn the right to burn that brawny, blond bridge to the ground. Erik can apologize all he wants, but to quote her rebel leader—she’d just as soon kiss a Wookiee.
 
Not even the most sophisticated of Sadie’s superstitious rituals could have predicted such a disastrous reunion. But while she refuses to acknowledge the siren call of Erik’s steely forearms or the way his voice softens when he offers her his sweater, Sadie can’t help but wonder if there might be more layers to her cold-hearted nemesis than meet the eye. Maybe, possibly, even burned bridges can still be crossed….

This is the second of the three novellas that Ali Hazelwood is releasing next year. My favourite thing about this set of novellas is that it tells the stories of three scientist best friends. I am looking forward to seeing all their stories and how each one differs.

Below Zero by Ali Hazelwood

Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn…
 
Hannah’s got a bad feeling about this. Not only has the NASA aerospace engineer found herself injured and stranded at a remote Arctic research station—but the one person willing to undertake the hazardous rescue mission is her longtime rival.
 
Ian has been many things to Hannah: the villain who tried to veto her expedition and ruin her career, the man who stars in her most deliciously lurid dreams…but he’s never played the hero. So why is he risking everything to be here? And why does his presence seem just as dangerous to her heart as the coming snowstorm?

This is the third novella by Ali Hazelwood that is releasing next year. This is possibly the one I am most excited for as well. I have to make a decision if I want to read these novella all in one go or read them as they come out!

Her Majesty’s Royal Coven by Juno Dawson

HMRC tells the story of Her Majesty’s Royal Coven, established by Queen Elizabeth I as a covert government department based in Manchester. However, when the genocide of all witches is foreseen by the agency’s oracles, consensus on how to tackle the prophecy threatens to tear apart a group of lifelong friends.

Juno Dawson never fails to right an outstanding book. This one is a science-fiction fantasy with witches and you bet I am beyond excited to give it a read. It is already getting some incredible reviews and I cannot wait to see what I think and share my thoughts.

The Sunbearer Trials by Aidan Thomas

As each new decade begins, the Sun’s power must be replenished so that Sol can keep traveling along the sky and keep the evil Obsidian gods at bay. Ten semidioses between the ages of thirteen and eighteen are selected by Sol himself as the most worthy to compete in The Sunbearer Trials. The winner carries light and life to all the temples of Reino del Sol, but the loser has the greatest honor of all―they will be sacrificed to Sol, their body used to fuel the Sun Stones that will protect the people of Reino del Sol for the next ten years.

Teo, a 17-year-old Jade semidiós and the trans son of Quetzal, goddess of birds, has never worried about the Trials…or rather, he’s only worried for others. His best friend Niya―daughter of Tierra, the god of earth―is one of the strongest heroes of their generation and is much too likely to be chosen this year. He also can’t help but worry (reluctantly, and under protest) for Aurelio, a powerful Gold semidiós and Teo’s friend-turned-rival who is a shoo-in for the Trials. Teo wouldn’t mind taking Aurelio down a notch or two, but a one-in-ten chance of death is a bit too close for Teo’s taste.

Aidan Thomas always seem to write books that sound so interesting and then they come with absolutely stunning covers. I am looking forward to picking this one up and seeing what I think. It sounds incredible and I have no doubt it will be incredible.

The First to Die at the End by Adam Silvera

#1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Silvera returns to the universe of international phenomenon They Both Die at the End in this prequel. New star-crossed lovers are put to the test on the first day of Death-Cast’s fateful calls.

Sometimes I don’t like prequels when I know that they have been made purely due to fame of the book but this is a book where that is different. I am beyond excited for this prequel and to see where it all began. Give it to me already!
