20220705 Most Anticipated Releases

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

HOW ARE WE JULY ALREADY? I can’t quite believe it. But it’s true and that means it’s time to once more look forward to the second half of the year and all the amazing releases I’m looking forward to. So let’s dive right in:

Husband Material (Boyfriend Material #2) by Alexis Hall

Release date: August 2nd 2022

UM HELLO this is my most anticipated release OF THE YEAR!

Fence, Vol 5: Rise by C.S. Pacat

Release date: August 16th 2022

I love this little comic series about fencing and slow-burn romance so much!

The American Roommate Experiment (Spanish Love Deception #2) by Elena Armas

Release date: August 18th 2022

I loved The Spanish Love Deception, so I’m super excited for Rosie’s story. Plus, forced proximity is always a nice trope!

Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood

Release date: August 23rd 2022

I have adored Ali Hazelwood’s first novel, The Love Hypothesis, as well as her novellas, so OF COURSE I’m super excited for her next release! Plus, it has enemies-to-lovers AND more women in science, so I’m in!

The Unbreakable Bladesong Druid (The Guild Codex: Unveiled #4) by Annette Marie

Release date: September 9th 2022


The First To Die At The End by Adam Silvera

Release date: October 4th 2022

I cried while reading They Both Die At The End. I can’t imagine going through that again. But I am, because there’s a prequel coming out and I am a sucker.

A Cosmic Kind of Love by Samantha Young

Release date: October 18th 2022

I’m a sucker for a good penpal romance, but add in an astronaut? Whole new level, yes!

Paris Daillencourt is About to Crumble (Winner Bakes All #2) by Alexis Hall

Release date: October 18th 2022

TWO ALEXIS HALL RELEASES IN ONE LIST? Yes, and I am so ready for more reality tv baking competition and an insecure protagonist that I already want to hug.

Ocean’s Echo by Everina Maxwell

Release date: November 1st 2022

I loved Everina Maxwell’s Winter’s Orbit so of course I am excited to read her next standalone sci-fi romance which takes place in the same universe as Winter’s Orbit. But also, this has fake dating, except it’s fake soulbonding, and that alone has me convinced.

A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release date: November 15th 2022

Honestly, these series have me SUPER confused and I have no idea what’s even going on most of the time. But the romance is brilliant so I’ll just keep reading.

Well Traveled (Well Met #4) by Jen DeLuca

Release date: December 6th 2022

I will never have enough of this little renaissance faire series.

Never Ever Getting Back Together by Sophie Gonzales

Release date: December 6th 2022

“A girl enters a reality dating competition to get revenge on her cheating, royal-adjacent ex-boyfriend, and ends up falling for another girl on the show—in fact, the girl he cheated on her with.” YES, PLEASE!

  1. Very colourful books. And some would even go with our Paris in July challenge.

    I hope you will enjoy them all.

    My TTT this week.

    1. Thanks! And yes, they do look nice and colourful together 🙂

  2. I forgot to put them on my list but I’m really excited for those two Alexis Hall books. 🙂

    1. Hope they’ll both live up to our expectations 🙂

  3. A good looking list. I have Love on the Brain on my list. I particularly like the look of An American Roommate Experiment.

    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks! Hope we’ll both love those books!

      1. Fingers crossed 🤞

  4. I didn’t know there was another book in the Winter’s Orbit universe. Based on the week’s TTT, Love on the Brain is shooting straight to the top of the bestseller lists.

    1. Haha yes, Love on the Brain is definitely super popular already 🙂

  5. Well Traveled looks cute – I need to catch up on the series!

    1. I hope you’ll love the other books in the series – it’s definitely one of my favorites 🙂

  6. Love on the Brain has been on so many lists this week. May you enjoy it.

    My post:

    1. It definitely seems super popular already!

  7. I also can’t believe that it’s already July. How?! 🙈 Great list of books though! I’m also really looking forward to Love on the Brain and A Cosmic Kind of Love and Well Traveled (even if I haven’t caught up with the rest of the books in this series)! I hope you enjoy all of these and happy reading 🙂

    1. Time is moving waayy too quickly it seems, but as long as there are great books along the way it’s okay 🙂

  8. Oooh, The Unbreakable Bladesong Druid sounds amazing, and I absolutely LOVE that cover! Hope you get to read all of these!

    Here’s my TTT post.

    1. Yes, that cover for The Unbreakable Bladesong Druid is just absolutely amazing, isn’t it? <3

  9. Well Traveled is on my list today, too! I can’t for us to get to read it.

    1. Me too, it sounds so good and I can’t get enough of this series 🙂

        1. So many books to look forward to 🙂

  10. This year has SO many excellent looking releases coming out, but yeah- I can’t believe we’re in the second half now either!

    I didn’t realize Jen DELuca was on book four of that series already!

    1. Time really is flying by so fast!

  11. Great list! I have Love on the Brain on my list too. Ocean’s Echo sounds good to me, though I have Winter’s Orbit on my shelf and have yet to read it (I will, I will!)

    1. I loved Winter’s Orbit, hope you’ll love it too! And Love on the Brain too!

  12. masterspj says:

    I CANNOT wait for Husband Material. I’m excited for the Paris book too.

    Lauren @

    1. Same, they sound sooo good!

  17. Always fun to see what books we’re anticipating! Hope you enjoy all of these, Lindsey! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Rissi!

  18. Husband Material is definitely one of my most anticipated books this year. I’m so glad it’s only a few weeks away! I’m so behind with Armentrout’s books which is sad because I used to be on top of every new release.

    1. I’m re-reading Boyfriend Material and it is still SO GOOD! I can’t wait for Husband Material 🙂

  19. A Cosmic Kind of Love has such a cool concept. Great TTT list!
    Just finished volume 1 of fence, definitely going to continue with the series.

    1. So glad to hear you’re enjoying Fence! Hope you’ll love the rest of the series too!
