I told myself that this year I would slow down with ARCs as I definitely took on too many in 2021. Around 85% of what I read last year were ARCs and I really want to get through the books I’ve actually brought. So far this year I have read four ARCs which is a decent amount if you ask me. As for what I have to read, I’m currently sitting on four advanced copies all releasing in the next few months.
I’ve talked about each one below in a new format I want to use for my ARC update posts. Let me know if you prefer this structure to my old one.
With This Kiss by Carrie Hope Fletcher – Available 12th April 2022
Books by Youtubers always intrigue me. I feel a strange urge to know if they’re any good or not. However, I have already read one of Carrie’s books, All That She Can See, way back in 2017 and I thought it was pretty decent but I was more easily impressed back then. I’m definitely more of a harsh critic now.
So when I wrote this post I was only around 20% through this, however, I forgot I had this sitting in my drafts and I’ve actually finished it now. My review will be posted in the next few days.
Wild Fires by Sophie Jai – Available 12th May 2022
This will be my first book by Sophie Jai and my complete introduction to her as an author as I’ve never heard of her before. I’m quite excited to read something outside of my usual genres of fantasy and romance.
This Wicked Fate (This Poison Heart #2) by Kalynn Bayron – Available 21st June 2022
Kalynn Bayron has recently become a firm favourite of mine. I started out 2021 with my first ever read of hers and during the year I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of the first book in this series.
Speaking of the first book, This Poison Heart, I really enjoyed reading it and have been (im)patiently waiting for the next installment. The ending of the first book was super exciting and just pure chaos so I can’t wait to see how this one starts.
Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood – Available 23rd August 2022
This will be my first book by Ali as I am still yet to read The Love Hypothesis, but I may have time to read it before this one. I don’t think it matters that I haven’t read it first, but I want to see what the hype is about.
