2022 New Holiday Books

I know, I know, we’ve barely passed Halloween. What’s up with all the Christmas content already? Well, in the book world, it makes sense to put out all the holiday articles now, so that you have time to stock up before the holiday season really starts. There are so many incredible new holiday romances out this year–and some holiday thrillers, too!–that I couldn’t help but share them with you early.

This article will focus on 2022 releases specifically, but you can always refer to my complete list of holiday book reviews. You can also check out last year’s holiday book roundup!

To me, the best thing about this year’s roundup of holiday books is all the incredible queer holiday romances that are cropping up. I can’t think of a pre-2022 queer holiday romance off the top of my head, so it’s been really fun to see these marketed so well this year.
