2022 July – December New Book Releases

2022 July-December New Book Releases

Which books releasing in the second half of 2022 do you wish you could read right now?

Here it is! As of this post, this is the complete list of all the books I want to read that are being published during the remainder of 2022.

So many adventures to read by so many new-to-me authors! There are also highly anticipated sequels – looking at you, Bloodmarked! – forthcoming that I’ve been thinking about since last year, which also feels like forever ago. A lot of fantasy and romance make up this humongous list too. I think most of my favorite upcoming releases are being published in August, September, and November.

On Tuesday, I’ll be posting about my top 10 releases in the second half of 2022 that I’m excited about the most. Until then, please enjoy this list (that is in no way out of control):

“Under the Whispering Door is thought-provoking with loads of questions from several characters dead or alive…depressing and sad…a home filled with the most delightful people you will ever meet…I was crying by the end – pleasantly surprised, incredibly moved, and oh-so happy. Klune has once again crafted an outstanding and memorable novel. 5 stars!”

#PubDayTuesday: “All Night Long with a Cowboy” by Caitlin Crews

Image via NetGalley

“How Harriet and Jensen come to be together made this book a 5-star read for me. The growth of their relationship and as individuals was enthralling. The story wrapped up nicely with a big beautiful bow. Loved it!” (read full review)


ABOUT: If you play with fire…

One of the most notorious cowboys in Cold River, Jensen Kittredge always has willing women with sweet smiles vying for a place in his bed. So when the prissy high school librarian sidles up to him in the most disreputable bar in town with a scowl on her face, he has no idea what to make of it. Much less the attraction he feels toward the bespectacled creature who wants something from him… but not that. Yet.

Someone gets burned…

Harriett Barnett doesn’t care for dens of iniquity— or the insolent cowboy she certainly shouldn’t find attractive. But one of her students needs her help, and if she needs to corral the infamous Jensen to save him, she will. Trouble is, the town’s favorite Kittredge brother is a lot more than she bargained for. Harriett’s happy little life is orderly and neat, just how she likes it—until Jensen blows it all apart with his particular brand of addictive passion. Can a modern-day schoolmarm really tame the wildest cowboy in town? Or is Harriet headed for a terrible fall?

As Always, Happy Reading!!!
