Spring 2022 New Releases

Hello readers! Spring is here. I know it’s a little late for this post, but it’s here. Here are 5 books I’m hyped to read this spring.

Because it is also my birthday week, I’m aiming to post every day this week from today to the 3rd of April. I’m hoping to jump back into things strong and hit the ground running. I’m starting to read again and I’m ready for blogging again, too.

April 12

Pan is the author of An Astonishing Color of After, which I read 2 years ago. I know, I was late on that train, but I thought it would be too triggering at the time.

This one is a Romeo and Juliet retelling mixed with Chinese mythology. I haven’t read a Romeo and Juliet retelling before, but I’m excited to see what this author has in store.

This one follows Najwa. She competes in Scrabble professionally. She is just getting back into the game after her best friend died while doing the same competition her friend was doing when she died.

I just heard Scrabble competitor and I was sold. I just have a feeling this is gonna be a good one.

May 3

Family of Liars is the prequel to We Were Liars by the same author. I recently bought We Were Liars, but read it back in 2015. Due to the recent success of that book on Tik Tok, the author has written a prequel.

We Were Liars is about a girl and her 3 friends who sometimes live on this island together. We are in this timeline where the friends will not talk to her and in the past where they all did something terrible and we are slowly finding out what it is.

Some people loved it, some people hated it, I personally think it had one of my favorite tropes of all time, but I can’t say what that is because of spoilers.

This has to be one of my most anticipated books of 2022. When McQuiston published their first novel, Red White and Royal Blue, I really hated everything about it. Mostly, it was missing romance and a good plot. BUT, their second novel One Last Stop, I really loved it. It was everything their debut novel wasn’t.

This one is pitched as rivals to lovers, which makes me nervous, but I’m hoping for the best. Their debut novel was pitched as enemy to lovers but was absolutely not that. A week before prom, the MC Chloe kisses Shara Wheeler and she vanishes. Chloe and 2 other people are on the search to find her.

May 12

Only on the Weekends follows Mack. He is falling for 2 different guys and doesn’t know what to do. Mack has a boyfriend, Karim, but once MAck moves away, he can only see Karim on the weekends. He also meets another guy named Finlay and doesn’t know if his current love, which only occurs on the weekends is enough, or if he wants this new guy instead.

I have had this one on my Goodreads TBR since 2020 when it had nothing but a title. I don’t think I’ve ever read an LGBT love triangle. This one seems dramatic and heart-wrenching, which is exactly what I love!
