I’m in a situation this October where I’ve added more books to my TBR than the actual amount of books I’ve read, oops. Definitely missing my 20+ book a month summer reading, but my books this fall have been really quality reads AND I’m looking forward to the following books on my TBR. Today’s recent TBR addition round feature some 2022 releases I am SO, SO looking forward to and some recent releases.
Just Haven’t Met You Yet by Sophie Cousens – Did anyone read that title to the tune of the same song by Michael Bublé? Sophie Cousens’ debut, This Time Next Year, was one of the most popular books last year & one that I really enjoyed. Her sophomore novel coming out this November follows a woman on vacation who is convinced that the man she’s mixed up her suitcase with is the one.
The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson – The Magic of Found Objects was Bad on Paper Podcast’s Book Club pick for September 2021. I had the book on hold from the library, but it didn’t come in until this week. This book sounds super unique, following two best childhood friends who decide to give up on romance & marry each other. I plan on diving into Maddie Dawson’s backlist if I like this one!
One Night on the Island by Josie Silver – I really enjoyed Josie Silver’s One Day in December and LOVED, LOVED The Two Lives of Lydia Bird, so I cannot wait to read her February 2022, One Night on the Island, following two people who are very much in need of a vacation on a remote Irish island & are accidentally booked to share the same cabin.
Book Lovers by Emily Henry – It’s not secret that I (& the rest of the world) have ADORED Emily Henry’s adult contemporary books, but I think I might be the most excited yet for her 2022 release, Book Lovers! As suggested by the title, this one just SCREAMS books, as a literary agent Nora agrees to go on a sisters’ trip only to run into broods book editor, Charlie (who Emily Henry has described as Roy Kent from Ted Lasso!!!).
Battle Royal by Lucy Parker – I saw some hype for Battle Royal earlier this summer, but a review in Book Page finally convinced me to add this book to my TBR. This British contemporary follows two bakers & enemies who must compete to bake the wedding cake for an upcoming royal wedding.
Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano – You know those books that you don’t realize how much you loved it until after you’ve finished it? That was me with Finlay Donovan is Killing It, so I am so,SO excited for this mystery comedy sequel in February 2022.
Gallant by Victoria Schwab – I didn’t even need to read the synopsis to add Victoria Schwab’s March 2022 YA release to my TBR, but picture family mystery and demons.
