In the spotlight today…


A sneak peak at some of Sourcebooks Most Anticipated Releases of 2022:  

We are thrilled for the titles set to publish in 2022. Check out five below that we think readers will love!
Electric Idol by Katee Robert: Electric Idol by Katee Robert (1/18)
It’s Lore Olympus meets Helen Hardt in the second installment of this sexy modern-day deconstruction of our favorite Greek myths. When her family executed a coup that dethroned Zeus himself, Psyche knew she was in trouble, but she wasn’t prepared for Aphrodite to demand her literal heart as payment. Or for Aphrodite’s gorgeous son to be the one determined to strike the blow. Points of interest: Greek mythology retelling, USA Today bestseller, fake dating, forbidden romance
Never Been Kissed by Timothy Janovsky (5/3; personal favorite!)
For fans of Boyfriend Material comes a warm, hilarious, and thoroughly engaging LGBTQIA+ romcom from debut author Timothy Janovsky. Wren Roland has never been kissed, let alone been in love, but he wants that movie-perfect ending more than anything. Feeling nostalgic on the eve of his twenty-first birthday, he sends emails to all the boys he (ahem) loved before he came out. He didn’t expect a response from Derick Haverford, Wren’s #1 pre-coming-out-crush…but now that they’re working together at their hometown’s vintage drive-in theater, maybe that perfect-kiss-before-the-credits is finally within reach. Points of interest: debut author, demisexual hero, real Becky Albertalli vibes
The Stand-In by Lily Chu (5/3)
From debut author Lily Chu comes a hilarious and heartwarming women’s fiction story of fame, family, and love. When a mysterious black SUV pulls up next to Gracie Reed, she can’t believe that the people inside are Wei Fangli and Sam Yao, Chinese cinema’s golden couple. Or that Fangli has a proposal that’s about to change everything… Points of interest: Audible bestseller, biracial identity, China’s one-child policy
Up All Night with a Good Duke by Amy Rose Bennet (7/26)
Artemis Jones—ladies’ academy teacher by day and gothic romance writer by night—is growing tired of her family’s pressure to settle down and marry. What she needs is a real-life gothic hero to ruin her and assure her single status forever. Little does she realize she’s about to come face-to-face with a Byron-esque widowed duke determined to find a bride… Points of interest: sexy Regency, book about book club, feminist heroine
Husband Material by Alexis Hall (8/3)
Sequel to Alexis Hall’s breakout Boyfriend Material, Husband Material is a hilarious LGBTQIA+ romcom about life, love, marriage, and everything in between. Luc and Oliver may have found their happily ever after, but that doesn’t mean it’s all smooth sailing from here. Faced with friends getting married everywhere they look, Luc feels the social pressure to propose…but as they survive four weddings and a funeral, Luc and Oliver will have to come to grips with what their own happily ever after was truly meant to be. Points of interest: direct sequel to Boyfriend Material, mental health

      I’d like to read Up All Night With a Good Duke. I enjoy stories set in the Regency period. I like heroes who go after what they want in this case a bride. Even more I like heroines who break with the times and also go after what they want. She becomes a teacher and a gothic romance writer! How cool is that!! It sounds like they’ll Hs e to travel a rocky road to attain their HEA.

      I also would like to read Electric Idol by Katee Roberts. I like mythology so I enjoy gods and goddesses as the characters. I’m looking forward to being introduced to Aphrodite’s son!
