Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! A new year brings new releases to look forward to so without further ado, here are ten of my most anticipated books releasing in the first half of 2024:

The (Fake) Dating Game by Timothy Janovsky

Release date: 23 January 2024
Fake dating for a reality tv show? Count me in!

House of Flame and Shadow by Sarah J. Maas

Release date: 30 January 2024
I’m both super excited and super nervous for this one!

Bride by Ali Hazelwood

Release date: 6 February 2024
I’m so curious to see a paranormal romance by Ali Hazelwood.

Just for the Summer by Abby Jimenez

Release date: 2 April 2024
2024 will be the year I finally read Abby Jimenez and this sounds like a great one to start with!

The Familiar by Leigh Bardugo

Release date: 9 April 2024
Leigh Bardugo is an auto-buy author for me and this sounds so unique, I’m intrigued already.

Funny Story by Emily Henry

Release date: 23 April 2024
I’m not saying I have high hopes for this one, but I am saying I think this may be a contender for my favorite read of the year πŸ™‚

A Letter to the Luminous Deep by Sylvie Cathrall

Release date: 25 April 2024
How gorgeous is this cover and how gorgeous does this story sound?

Truly, Madly, Deeply by Alexandria Bellefleur

Release date: 30 April 2024
This sounds so fun and it definitely helps that the hero looks like Steve Harrington…

This Summer Will Be Different by Carley Fortune

Release date: 7 May 2024
I’ve had mixed feelings about Carley Fortune’s previous books (loved one, disliked another) but I’m eager to read her next release!

The Paradise Problem by Christina Lauren

Release date: 14 May 2024
I automatically put all new Christina Lauren books on my TBR because I always end up loving them, and this one sounds like another fun rom-com featuring one of my favorite tropes (fake dating/marriage)!
