My annual anticipated release posts are some of my favorite blog posts to write & share each year. I use Goodreads and Instagram as my go-to new/upcoming book sources , as well as keeping an eye on my favorite authors and seeing/knowing that they have new books coming out in the year.
I’ll continue to publish seasonal anticipated release posts throughout the year (I always, of course, end up having more books to share as more get announced), but today I’m sharing the contemporary romances and adult fiction releases I’m most looking forward to. I decided to combine these two genres because there is some crossover with some books & I didn’t want to make another post with just a handful of adult fiction titles. I’ll be sharing my most anticipated YA books in a separate post. The books below are ordered by release date.
