March & April 2022 Anticipated Releases

New season, new books! I usually share my anticipated releases posts by season but since they are so many new books on my radar coming out this March, April, and May, I decided to just focus on March & April this time around – my May 2022 list is already teeming with books and I know I’ll be adding more over the next few weeks. This list features a mix of young adult, contemporary romance, & adult fiction releases – & yes some are already available to read! 

March 2022

Turning by Joy L. Smith  | RD: March 1

I’m actually currently finishing Turning by Joy L. Smith – this YA contemporary follows a Black ballerina, Genie, who has suffered from an accident that has left her paralyzed from the waist down. The book is very much on the mature side, as Genie deals with the aftermath of her accident, the loss of her dreams of becoming a professional dancer, her complicated relationship with her ex and her family, and the start of a new relationship with Kyle, a former gymnast recovering from a traumatic brain injury.

The Unsinkable Greta James by Jennifer E. Smith | RD: March 1

I went on a mega Jennifer E. Smith kick a few years ago, gobbling up all of her YA contemporaries, and I’m so excited to read her first adult fiction release that has been getting rave reviews so far. An indie musician, Great James, agrees to go on a week-long Alaskan cruise with her estranged father just after losing her mother. Add it on Goodreads 

One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle | RD: March 1

I have been craving another new Rebecca Serle book since reading In Five Years at the end of 2022. One Italian Summer is another read that has been getting fantastic early reviews, following a woman whose recently lost her mother and goes on the trip to the Amalfi Coast that the mother-daughter duo was supposed to go on..only to meet the 30 year old version of her mother there. I’m typically not the biggest audiobook reader, but I might just have to change my ways because I recently discovered through Instagram that Laura Graham narrates the audiobook! Add it on Goodreads 

If You Ask Me by Libby Hubscher | RD: May 8

I LOVED Libby Huscher’s Meet Me in Paradise last year, so I have high expectations for her latest release, If You Ask Me. The book follows a beloved relationship advice columnist whose husband unexpectedly cheats on her & leaves and the firefighter who enters her life when she burns her husband’s belongings via bonfire.

January and February 2022 Anticipated Releases

It’s a week into the new year & I’m back with another round of anticipated releases! I shared my most anticipated books for contemporary romance & adult fiction and YA in December, but today I’m going to just be focusing on the books coming on in January and February. And yes, there are indeed books here that I didn’t share in those 2022 anticipated releases posts because I of course have added more books to my TBR since! I’m only going to be sharing details on the books I’ve added since my annual anticipated releases posts or books that I didn’t include in those round-ups.
