2022 historical fiction books best new release most anticipated

With a bunch of great historical fiction books in store for 2022, I thought it was time to do a roundup of the best of these titles. For me, I know I’ll be reading the new Kate Quinn novel, The Diamond Eye. Also, The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont and Woman on Fire (about Nazi-looted art) by Lisa Barr sounds really intriguing as well.

This is a list of the Best (New & Anticipated) Historical Fiction Books for 2022. The list has been compiled based on stuff I’ve read, other reviews, early buzz, etc., so I’ll be updating it as more titles are announced or released and more reviews are published!
