50+ Exciting Upcoming & New Book Releases Of 2022

What are the new book releases of 2022 you don’t want to miss? Uncover the most-anticipated 2022 book releases by month and season to take you around the world.

Nothing is better than getting in front of the hype for a new book release. No one wants to be unfashionably late to the party.

But here at The Uncorked Librarian, we also like causing the hype. Reading the “bestsellers” can get a little boring along with seeing the same books on every website.

We are also pretty sure you know how to Google “Reese’s book club” on your own.

Instead, TUL focuses on researching and reading 2022 book releases that are lesser-known paired with some of our favorite authors, big and small.

Sure, some of these upcoming book releases might also hit bestselling charts. Other new books may remain hidden gems. Of course, there’s the occasional bust.

So, with the plethora of new and upcoming 2022 book releases, how do you choose — especially when your time is limited?

The new book releases 2022 promises include some of our favorite authors from previous years including Jennifer Saint, Akwaeke Emezi, Isabel Allende, and Lucy Foley.

We’ve found new books geared specifically toward Uncorked Readers, featuring Agatha Christie, cult fiction, and translated literature.

Many of these upcoming book releases will be perfect for our Uncorked Reading Challenge themes.

Lastly, all of 2022’s new books will inspire and transport you to different lives, times, and destinations. The Uncorked Librarian focuses on books and movies to inspire travel after all.

We’ll frequently update all upcoming books of 2022. Be sure to check back. Let’s get started!

Don’t forget to check out 2021’s newest books that you may have missed.

Love & Other Disasters by Anita Kelly book cover with brunette white woman and nonbinary red haired person looking at each other on red background

Love & Other Disasters by Anita Kelly

*LGBTQ+ foodie fiction set in Los Angeles, California
Release Date: January 18, 2022
TUL Rating: 5 stars

We couldn’t be more excited to start off the new year with one of the sweetest and sexiest January 2022 book releases, Love & Other Disasters.

Recently divorced Dahlia Woodson knows two things: she feels lost, and she doesn’t want children. Leaving behind her job, she heads to L.A. to participate in a competitive cooking show, Chef’s Special.

There’s a $100,000 prize at stake, and she could use the money and validation.

Not all of the contestants are likable on Chef’s Special — Lizzie, anyone?! — but Dahlia finds herself drawn to London, a nonbinary, pansexual chef.

Dahlia and London start falling in love with each other and themselves while navigating their unsupportive family members. There is cow milking, wedding crashing, and flying tacos.

However, they never discuss what will happen when one of them is kicked off the show — and someone will eventually have to go. Will they stay together?

Love & Other Disasters is perfect for foodie fiction and cooking show lovers. The show mimics some of our favorites including The Great British Bake Off and Top Chef.

Plus, if you are looking for a feel-good story set in California — with sightseeing — Love & Other Disasters will convince you to hop in your car, with the top down, and drive to the beach.

We championed the representation, London standing up to their dad, and Dahlia’s strength to live a life true to herself. Plus, we devoured this one in days; it’s such an easy, steamy read.

CWs: Misgendering, homophobia, nonbinary-phobia, transphobia, sexism, sexual content

Fiona And Jane by Jean Chen Ho book cover with two sketch women one shaded in yellow watercolor and the other pink on green background

Fiona And Jane by Jean Chen Ho

*LGBTQ+ short stories set in CA
Publication date: January 4, 2022
TUL Rating: DNF

One of our first DNF 2022 book releases, we were extremely disappointed by Fiona And Jane. A unique short story collection about two women growing up Taiwanese American in California, everything fell flat for us.

The first part of the story is intriguing, as we learn about Fiona and Jane’s childhoods and parents’ immigration to the United States from Taiwan.

However, as the young women grow up, the lack of plot and hard to follow, offsetting, and changing POV made us close the collection about 40% of the way in.

Honestly, we were hoping for an inspiring and multicultural tale about friendship and coming of age. We wouldn’t say the title is poorly written, but the format just doesn’t seem to work.

Overall, Fiona And Jane is a snooze. The Goodreads reviews are quite mixed, as well; it appears as though readers either loved or DNF’d this one too.

If you read Fiona And Jane, let us know your thoughts in the comments. We feel somewhat terrible giving up on it.

However, there are too many more exciting upcoming 2022 book releases that we wish to read.

Thank you to NetGalley and Viking for a free advanced copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont book cover with woman in dress with arms resting on lap

The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont

Historical mystery set in the UK and Ireland in the 1920s
Publication date: February 1, 2022

In 1926, Agatha Christie mysteriously disappeared for 11 days. No one has ever known exactly what happened during that time or why she took off in the first place.

The Christie Affair seeks to answer these questions by infusing a bit of domestic drama and intrigue – hopefully with a good dose of the classic British wit.

This is likely to be one of the most anticipated new book releases 2022 has to offer for TUL readers who can finally dig into a new Christie mystery.

Read The Christie Affair: Amazon | Goodreads

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley book cover with apartment at night from outside

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley

*Murder mystery & thriller set in Paris

TUL (Christine) Rating: 3 Stars

In one of the most hotly anticipated upcoming books of 2022, a down-on-her-luck young woman heads to Paris to stay with her half-brother.

But when she arrives, the apartment is unexpectedly lavish, the half-brother appears to be missing, and seemingly everyone has a secret.

Read more about The Paris Apartment on our books set in France reading list. Lucy Foley’s previous book The Guest List was one of TUL’s best books of 2020.

The Old Woman with the Knife by Gu Byeong-mo

Publication date: March 8, 2022

Those looking for exciting new translated book releases in 2022 will want to pick up this South Korean book about a 65-year-old female assassin named Hornclaw.

Her career has been one of precision, ruthlessness and no questions asked – and she isn’t ready to give it up. But one careless slip up puts Hornclaw – and her dog Deadweight – in danger.

Read The Old Woman with the Knife: Amazon | Goodreads

Jawbone by Mónica Ojeda book cover with one head with two different half faces

Jawbone by Mónica Ojeda, translated by Sarah Booker

Horror set in Ecuador
Publication date: March 12, 2022

A nightmarish coming of age tale that follows best friends Fernanda and Annelise who attend a prestigious all-girls school run by Opus Dei.

The girls and their friends spend a lot of time in an abandoned building where it seems childhood games inevitably get out of hand.

Throw in some Lovecraftian horror for good measure and this sounds like it might read a bit like a weird AF fever dream.

If this is your brand of horror, Jawbone should be one of your most anticipated new 2022 book releases.

The book would also work for the Reading Challenge prompt books set in Ecuador, and definitely has some dark academia book vibes.

Read Jawbone: Amazon | Goodreads

Under Lock & Skeleton Key by Gigi Pandian book cover with person climbing purple stairs in red building

Under Lock & Skeleton Key by Gigi Pandian

Locked room mystery set in California
Publication date: March 15, 2022

While this is distressing in and of itself, what makes the whole thing more complicated is that the deceased is Tempest’s stage double, and the wall has supposedly been sealed for over a century.

Under Lock & Skeleton Key is definitely one of the more intriguing new release books of 2022.

Read Under Lock & Skeleton Key: Amazon | Goodreads

Queen of the Tiles by Hanna Alkaf

Publication Date: April 19, 2022

Probably one of only a few new book releases of 2022 to focus on Scrabble, Queen of the Tiles follows Najwa Bakri as she enters her first Scrabble tournament since her friend Trina’s death.

Trina was the Scrabble Queen, and she died at this very tournament.

But now that the top spot is free, there are plenty of people vying for her title. Things get even more complicated when messages begin to appear from seemingly beyond the grave.
