Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Releases for the Second Half of 2022

Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Most Anticipated Books Releasing In the Second Half of 2022.” I am doing this post last minute because I just discovered that I in fact only made it in my head. I could have sworn I put it together but it was just a figment of my imagination. So here I am, trying to comfort my dogs during this barrage of fireworks and putting this post together as best I can. I know I left off a bunch, but I running out of brain power, so am limiting this list to fifteen. Covers linked to Goodreads.

  2. I hope your dogs weren’t too stressed, mine gets full on panic attacks from fireworks so it’s quite distressing when it’s a big celebration day. I forgot about loads of books I am excited about…when I remember they exist that is.

    I think Babel sounds excellent.
