My 2022 Most Anticipated Romance Releases: July to December

This post contains affiliate links.

Alright friends. When I did the first version of this post way back at the beginning of the year, it was mostly just a lot of work and effort. As I’m compiling this second round of most anticipated reads for 2022, I can’t help but feel an added sense of pressure. I don’t want to forget anyone. I don’t want to leave anyone out. And I think most importantly, I know what it feels like to click on one of these posts and not see your book (it happened to me, a lot). While my sole intention here is always to share books I absolutely love and am excited for, also please realize that I am human, and if a book is missing from this list, it is purely oversight, and not me intentionally leaving someone out (unless you happen to be my unnamed nemesis muhahahahaha!). All that being said, I hope you find some new books to add to your TBR!
