Ten 2022 Releases That I Still Need to Read

I thought it might be fun to do a little wrap up of all the books I didn’t quite get around to in 2022 despite looking forward to them. The year isn’t over yet, so I may still be able to squeeze one or two of these in before the end of December. Let me know if there’s a really amazing one on this list you think I should prioritize!


The Might by Siri Pettersen
I loved the first two books, but I just wasn’t in the mood to read the third book when I did try to pick it up. This is one I definitely want to return to because the pseudo-Nordic world is so cool!

The Blood Trials by N.E. Davenport
I love the synopsis for this and it definitely gives me Red Rising vibes. The final book in the duology will be out in April 2023, so I would like to catch up before then.

The Bladed Faith by David Dalglish
I know sooo many folks have loved this new book, but David Dalglish’s writing doesn’t always work well for me. I’m usually left feeling underwhelmed, so I’ve kept putting this one off despite so many positive reviews from fellow bloggers.

Dead Water by C.A. Fletcher
This is the story of  a remote island community suffering from a water borne illness. The reviews a somewhat of a mixed bag, but I am hoping to read this before the end of the year. 

Ymir by Rich Larson
This is a sci-fi retelling of Beowulf and I CANNOT BELIEVE that I haven’t picked this up.


The Warrior by Stephen Aryan
This might be the worst one on the list – not only did I get an ARC, but I also bought a special edition and STILL haven’t read it. I thought the first book was great, I’m just horrible at finishing things apparently!

The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd-Jones
A motley crew of allies, including a corgi, band together to take down the prince. This was in one of the book boxes I get (I might need to cut back on those) and it’s one I’ve been looking forward to – just have to make the time for it.

Notorious Sorcerer by Davinia Evans
This sounds like such a cool book, with interesting and very dangerous magic.

Across the Sand by Hugh Howey
Hugh Howey’s latest release even made it to a Can’t Wait Wednesday post and I haven’t touched it. I really overloaded myself from July – October this year and you’ll notice that several of the books here were released during that time period.

The Atlas Paradox by Olivie Blake
I totally pre-ordered this just because you could get a cool pin if you did. This one came out less than a month ago, so I’m not going to be too hard on myself if I can’t read it by year’s end.

  1. I still remember I was jealous that you got the Warrior ARC so early lol
    Ymir was… dark. Hope you like it, though! I’d suggest the Warrior over it though

    Btw I refuse to look at the releases I still need to read this year—there are SO MANY!!!
