Books on my Spring 2022 tbr

I’ve missed a couple of TTT posts recently but was keen to take part in this one as it gives me a good chance to look at some forthcoming books that I’m excited about.  For ease I’m including April, May and June as the months of Spring – I know this isn’t strictly the correct dates but there you go.  So, here are 10 books off my Spring TBR.

1. The Hunger of the Gods by John Gwynne, release date 14th April.  I’m nearly bursting at the seams waiting to read this one.  I’ll be picking it up very soon.  I absolutely loved The Shadow of the Gods.


2. Nettle and Bone by T Kingfisher, release date 26th April. This book sounds like a great combination of everything I love.  Check out the description here.


3. Land of the Dead by Steven Hopstaken and Melissa Prusi, release date 26th April.  OMG I am loving this series and can’t get enough of it.  I nearly broke my laptop frantically requesting this one from Netgalley and being approved absolutely made my day.  A fantasy series that imagines the strang partnership of Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde battling against all sorts of strange critters. 

4. Elektra by Jennifer Saint, release date 28th April.  Oh yes, I am all over the Greek mythology retellings at the moment.  I can’t get enough of this sort of book and loved Ariadne by this author.


5. Sea of Tranquility by Emily St John Mandel, release date 28th April.  Because Station Eleven and The Glass Hotel are absolutely brilliant reads so this is one of my auto, go to authors.


6. The Girl and the Moon by Mark Lawrence, release date 28th April.  I can’t wait to pick this one up and see how everything concludes.  This is another auto-pick up author for me – he’s a genius with words.

Girl and the

7.  The Night They Vanished by Vanessa Savage, release date 5th May.  I already read this author a couple of years ago and enjoyed her writing and this one sounds very intriguing indeed.  


8.The House with the Golden Door by Elodie Harper, release date 12th May.  ‘The life of a courtesan in Pompeii’ oh yes, I can’t wait to read this.  I really enjoyed The Wolf Den and want to follow Amara’s journey.


9. The Seawomen by Chloe Timms, expected publication 14th June.  A debut novel this one and it sounds very interesting indeed, I simply couldn’t resist.


10. In the Shadow of Lightning by Brian McClellan, expected publication 21st June.  This book sounds amazing and I absolutely love the cover.  I’m super excited to have a copy of this and can’t wait to tuck in.


That’s it for me this week.  I’ve had to select just a few from each month but will outline each month’s books in more detail at the start of each month.  This is just a Spring snippet.  What’re you all waiting to read this Spring?

    The Hunger of the Gods is at the top of my “want to read” list as well, and I’m very, very, very curious about the new McClellan book 🙂
