January 2022 Hopefuls

Coffee, Cup, Drink, Dawn, Chocolate, Sugar, Mug, Hot

Hello, January. One of my least favorite months. But, since it is my last month before our baby arrives, I am going to soak up every moment that I have to myself…and fill it with thick fantasy books!

Here are the books I hope to read this month!

The Dragon Republic (The Poppy War #2) by R.F. Kuang

The Dragon Republic (The Poppy War, #2)

I devoured The Poppy War in December and immediately flagged it as one of the best fantasy books I’ve ever read. I plan on doing a full trilogy review once I am done … and I have a feeling I will finish The Dragon Republic and The Burning God this month! It’s so good, friends. Pick it up if you haven’t already.

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air, #2)

In a previous version of this post, I listed The Cruel Prince as a January 2022 read … well … I flew through the first one and now on to the second! I am excited to see what happens in this trilogy. The Cruel Prince was … dark and pretty messed up. Loved it, honestly.

Rule of Wolves (King of Scars #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Rule of Wolves (King of Scars, #2)

While I was not a fan of King of Scars (more on that later), the ending did pique my interest and encourage me to finish the duology and the Grishaverse series. I am going to go into this one cautiously optimistic …

Daughter of the Moon Goddess (The Celestial Kingdom Duology #1) by Sue Lynn Tan

Daughter of the Moon Goddess (The Celestial Kingdom Duology, #1)

The cover alone has me hooked, but I have heard nothing but amazing things about this book. It has a strong female lead, magic, monsters, adventure, romance … I simply cannot wait to get my hands on this book.

The Burning God (The Poppy War #3) by R.F. Kuang

The Burning God (The Poppy War, #3)

I can only assume once I finish The Dragon Republic I will need to pick up the final book in this trilogy. Kuang is also releasing a new book in August called Babel, and I cannot wait for more of her work!
