Welcome. Today, I want to talk about my most anticipated books and music of 2022, as well as some of the other titles I want to get to before the year is over.
The middle grade horror include: Empty Smiles by Katherine Arden, Camp Scare by Delilah S. Dawson, and The Girl in the Lake by India Hill Brown. Other books: A Thousand Steps into Night by Tracie Chee, The Couple At Number 9 by Clair Douglas, the next volume of The Case Study of Vanitas by Jun Mochizuki, and The Stardust Thief by Chelsea Abdullah. The classic I want to read this year is The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. The series I want to finish in 2022 are The Folk of the Air by Holly Black and Sands of Arawiya by Hafsah Faizal.
There are a couple of albums I’m waiting for this year. Some of the ones I’ve included here have already come out, but I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet.
In January: Icy Season by Saweetie (January 7), Caprisongs by FKA Twigs (January 14), The Gods We Can Touch by Aurora (January 21), and Motordrome by MO (January 28).
In March: Crash by Charli XCX (March 18).
Other releases with details to come: Kimbra’s fourth album, album by Kim Petras, Rina Sawayama's 2nd album.
So that’s what I’m currently waiting for this year. And, as always, this list will evolve as the year goes on. What are you looking forward to in 2022?
