Anticipated Releases | May 2022

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well! Today I’m going to be briefly going over some releases I’m anticipating.

I will say now that I only looked into book releases (and not very deeply) for May before this post. I didn’t look into any movies, TV shows, or Kdramas like I normally do. There are a couple of those I want to talk about, but I’m sure there’s more I’m looking forward to other than what I’m mentioning.

So anyway, I have a ton of books to talk about, so let’s get right into it!

And that’s going to be it for now! Like I said, I didn’t really do a lot of research leading up to this post when it comes to movies, tv shows, or Kdramas. I pretty much just skimmed lists to see if I recognized any titles.

So, make sure you let me know what titles your anticipating for May, whether it be a book or movie or something else!

Thanks so much for hanging out and I’m sorry this post is technically going up so late (but also not sorry because I’ve been busy and it’s fine). I’ll definitely see you all again VERY soon.

My name is Amanda! I'm 25 years old with one son, Alex. He's my world and my everything. I have my Bachelor's degree in English and Creative Writing. I run the Instagram @acourtofbooksandlove, the A Court of Books and Love blog and YouTube. I hope to one day help indie authors/lesser known authors work to spread their name and get their book to where they want it to be and ready for the public's eyes. If you're an indie author, feel free to email me to see if I'm interested in your novel (whether it's already published or not). I mainly read romance, YA fantasy, and YA contemporary. When emailing, please provide a copy of the novel or a link to where I can find it. For business inquires, email me at: acourtofbooksandlove@gmail.com

One thought on “Anticipated Releases | May 2022

  1. These look like some great upcoming releases! I hadn’t heard of Inheritance before this, but I’ve liked the other things I’ve read by Elizabeth Acevedo. I’ll have to keep me eye out for this one.
