We are all very much aware that, so far, 2022 has been an absolute shit show. “New year new me” has turned into the war in Ukraine, new strains of COVID, inflation, and companies still not respecting their employees. My Big Sad and existential dread lead me trying to find some bright spots for far this year.
And what is brighter than escapism? In this case, it took the form of my favorite books so far this year which I thought I’d share with you!
Title: The War of Two Queens (Blood and Ash #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: March 15, 2022
Genre(s): new adult, fantasy, romance

If you’ve followed me for a while here at Literary Weaponry, you would know that I am absolutely not much of a TBR person. I am a mood reader extraordinaire! However (there is always a however), being a mood reader means that sometimes the books I am most anticipating reading sit languishing on my shelf for months, or sometimes even years.
Last year (2021) I began doing most anticipated release lists sorted by quarter. It felt like a good way to organize these lists instead of month by month because, as we know, publishing dates keep getting juggled during this pandemic. I was looking back on my unread books from 2021, seeing what I had read and what I hadn’t, and thought it might be fun to revisit this list with you all!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
