Katie Kitamura, Zakiya Dalila Harris, and more authors pick their most anticipated books of 2022
A new year means a new crop of titles hitting bookshelves everywhere.
To fill our reading lists with some of 2022's literary magic, we went to the authors behind some of our favorite 2021 books. Zakiya Dalila Harris' The Other Black Girl, YZ Chin's Edge Case, and Kathy Wang's Imposter Syndrome all brought exciting plot twists to the workplace. Adriana Herrera and Farah Heron delivered two of last year's best romance novels with One Week to Claim It All and Accidentally Engaged. We thought there should be an award for Best Book You Can Read in a Day and it should go to Open Water, by Caleb Azumah Nelson. And Robert Jones Jr.'s The Prophets and Katie Kitamura's Intimacies also landed on our best books of the year.
Here are the books those authors can't wait for readers to get their hands in the months ahead.
