Top 5 Anticipated Reads Q1 2022


The Book Woman’s Daughter by Kim Michele Richardson

I loved The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek and it was my most memorable read of 2019 so I’m eager for the sequel!


Passing by Nella Larsen

One of my bookish resolutions in 2022 is to read one classic per quarter. This is my choice for Q1 of 2022. I also want to read it before I watch the Netflix adaptation!


Quiet by Susan Cain and The Woman They Could Not Silence by Kate Moore

One of my bookish resolution in 2022 is to read more nonfiction: Quiet has been on my TBR the longest, and I want to make it a priority this year; I came across The Woman They Could Not Silence during Nonfiction November. Both of these titles are high priority on my Nonfiction TBR.


I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys

Sepetys is an auto buy YA author for me, so I’m eager to read her new release on 2.1.2022.


The Diamond Eye by Kate Quinn

Quinn is another auto buy histfic author, and I’m preordering her new release which publishes on 3.31.2022.

Happy Reading Book Buddies!

~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”

  1. I’ve got the ARC for Book Woman’s Daughter and am also looking forward to it. I hope to get the ARC for The Diamond Eye. As for Passing – it is VERY good, but so is the movie – a pretty good adaptation (but slightly imperfect).

  2. It’s always nice to look forward to new books, especially if you’ve read the author before.

    My TTT this week.

  3. These all look like great choices, Carol. I have 4 on my TBR as well. I hope you enjoy them all and they live up to your expectations.
