Top 5 Tuesday: Anticipated Reads for Apr-Jun 2022

Top 5 Tuesday is a fun, weekly meme that asks you to pick 5 books that fit that week’s theme. It was created by Bionic Bookworm and is currently being hosted by Meeghan Reads. You should check out their wonderful blog for more details and the list of prompts!


Hello, reader!

It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday! A new month means a whole new list of prompts and we’re kicking off April with a good one. That’s because, this week, I’ll be talking about my top five most anticipated books that are coming out between April and June! I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t been keeping up with the new releases in 2022 as much as I did last year. It took me a minute to pick through my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads and find the books for this list. But the five that I did find are definitely at the top of my anticipated list!

That being said, let’s dive into the post.


#1. Fevered Star by Rebecca Roanhorse

I can’t start a most anticipated list with anything other than my most anticipated book of 2022! I cannot WAIT to get back into the world that Rebecca Roanhorse created in Black Sun. Especially after that ending. I need to know what happens with Xiala and Serapio, dangit! I’m so hyped for this book and I’ll be reading it as soon as it comes out.

Release Date: April 19, 2022

#2. The Marvellers by Dhonielle Clayton

Give me all the magical school stories by BIPOC authors pleeeease! This book sounds absolutely incredible. It sounds whimsical and diverse and like it’s going to be a wonderful ride. I haven’t read anything by Dhonielle Clayton as of yet, but I’ve wanted to for a hot minute. When I saw this was coming out, I figured there was no better time than now!

Release Date: May 3, 2022
