As we get ready to begin another year, it’s time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about. Not only is it fun to organize my reading and to make lists, they also have the added benefit of focusing my attention to the highly anticipated releases that I’d like to check out. Every quarter I’ll be putting together a post of my “must reads”, and while I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read them all, hopefully I can get to most of them (and also put some new books on people’s radars).
Anyway, I’d planned on putting together this list a little sooner, but better late than never! Plus, I’ve already gotten started on a few of these. Here are the books I’m really excited for in early 2022, what are some of yours? And would February and March please calm down?!
