I recently remember that I have a blog and that it’s fun for me to post things here, so I started going back through my drafted posts and realized I was overdue to share my list of most anticipated books of spring. A few of these are already out now, but there’s never a bad time to get excited about new books!
Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert (March 9)
I am so ridiculously excited for this book. I always enjoy Talia Hibbert’s books, but Take a Hint, Dani Brown really took it to the next level for me. And Act Your Age, Eve Brown has a sunshine/grump trope, which I absolutely love! Plus I think it’s awesome that both main characters are autistic, and I think the setup of her injuring the hero and staying to help him run his inn sounds really fun!
Update: I have read this one since I first drafted this post and absolutely ADORED it! Possibly even more than Dani Brown?? Basically, get your hands on this book! It’s funny and delightful and perfect.
Wilde Child by Eloisa James (March 30)
Eloisa James is an author who frequently winds up on these lists with no idea what the plot of the book actually is. I’ve really been enjoying the Wilde series, a Georgian historical romance series following a family of eleven siblings from different mothers, and I’m excited for another sibling to get their story in Wilde Child!
Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo (March 30)
It’s been a while since I’ve read a new Leigh Bardugo book! I will admit, I was super anxious to get my hands on this book after finishing King of Scars because I needed to know how everything is resolved, but it’s been so long since I’ve visited the Grisha world that I’ve definitely lost some interest in Rule of Wolves. Regardless, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it once I start reading, and I can’t wait for the Shadow and Bone series to drop on Netflix within the next month!
The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan (April 6)
I really enjoyed The Roommate, but the reason The Intimacy Experiment is on the list is more because of the plot than the author. I just think it’s such an interesting juxtaposition to pair a porn star with a rabbi, plus I really enjoyed Naomi in the first book and am excited for her to get her own story!
How to Catch a Duke by Grace Burrowes (April 13)
Finally, Stephen’s book! Stephen has been such a great meddling character throughout the Rogues to Riches series, and I cannot wait for him to finally have his own book. Plus it seems like he’s really met his match in his heroine, which I love to see! How to Catch a Duke promises to be such an excellent conclusion to the series (I assume, at least), and I can’t wait to read it.
Second First Impressions by Sally Thorne (April 13)
Despite how immensely underwhelmed I was by 99 Percent Mine, I’m still excited to see what Sally Thorne is writing next! I just enjoyed The Hating Game so much and can’t quite relinquish hope that Second First Impressions will be just as good. I’m not entirely sure what this one is about, but I’m excited to give it a try.
People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry (May 11)
Beach Read was a surprise favorite for me last year, so I’m really excited to read her next release, People We Meet on Vacation! I’ve seen some great early reviews, which is making me even more ready to pick this one up!
How to Find a Princess by Alyssa Cole (May 25)
A f/f Anastasia retelling? From Alyssa Cole?? I can’t remember the last time my excitement level went so high so quickly as it did when How to Find a Princess and its cover were announced!
As you can see, there are lots of great books coming out this spring! Also, the new Courtney Milan book that I mentioned in my list of anticipated winter releases got pushed back to April 20, so that’s another one to look forward to soon as well. What books can you not wait to get your hands on this spring? Let me know in the comments!
