Most Anticipated Releases | 2023

look at me, trying to be a good book blogger again, wow! hi hi, friends! i hope you’re all well! today i am going to show you my top ten most anticipated reads as of today (jan 3rd), but also this is kind of my tbr for the whole entire year. I would love to be able to read all of these, and then maybe do an updated post about how the reading went! I feel like each year, i try to do different kinds of tbr for the whole year, and i always have fun doing them, but i just want to make this year a little more relaxed and a lot more just about me reading things i know i will love! and i truly do believe i will love all of these.

➽ The Stolen Heir by Holly Black
January 3, 2023 – Little, Brown Young Readers
i feel like i dont really need to say much about this one! but i am so excited to be back into holly’s world of faerie and i promise to read this one this month!

➽ The Last Tale of the Flower Bride by Roshani Chokshi
February 14, 2023 – William Morrow & Company
i love roshani and her writting so much, but especially when it is about fairytales. i saw somewhere her say that this is like a mix between a fairytale and a thriller and i am so very excited to hopefully fall in love with this.

➽ She Is a Haunting by Trang Thanh Tran
February 28, 2023 – Bloomsbury
this is my only debut on the list, but this sounds so amazing. a haunted house, discussions on colonialism, sibling relationships, and gaysian ghosts maybe!! i am so very sold. i cant wait for this one.

➽ A House With Good Bones by T. Kingfisher
March 28, 2023 – Tor ✩ arc received
t. kingfisher is the author that constantly gets recommended to me and so many of my best friends promise me that i will love. i even asked for some of their books for christmas, in hopes of falling in love this year with many of their backlist! but i just got the earc for this one, so maybe this will be my first and i am so so so excited! and i think this also have a spooky house.. but maybe… with evil birds?

➽ Happy Place by Emily Henry
April 25, 2023 – Berkley
i have only read one emily henry book (beach read), but i really enjoyed it! but they have blown up in the book community and romance world and all the best selling lists, so i am excited to try their other books as well – starting with this newest release of 2023!



➽ Yellowface by R.F. Kuang
May 16, 2023 – William Marrow ✩ arc received
i will read everything rebecca writes, but i believe this one – where we get to be in the head of a white woman stealing the work of an asian woman – is going to be very heartbreakingly powerful on many levels, but especially thinking about bookish and publishing circles.

➽ Witch King by Martha Wells
May 30, 2023 – Tordotcom ✩ arc received
i am so excited to read a full novel about a demon from the underworld, after falling so in love with the murderbot novellas back in the day. i also think this could be a stand alone, or at least the story can stand alone, and that also makes me very excited!

Silver Nitrate by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
July 18, 2023 – Del Rey
i’ve loved everything i’ve read by silvia moreno-garcia, and i have a good feeling that this is going to be no different. it has to do with the occult and reshooting a cursed scene from a movie… i dont want to know too much. but i bet it will be very spooky and very powerful and i love that combination quite a lot, but especially from this author!

He Who Drowned the World by Shelley Parker-Chan
August 22, 2023 – Tor
she who became the sun was my favorite book of 2021 and there is nothing – and i mean nothing – i wouldn’t do for an arc of this.

Sword Catcher by Cassandra Clare
October 10, 2023 – Del Rey
cassie clare writing an adult non-shadowhunter story.. pubbed by del rey? oh i am intrigued! i honestly have a lot of faith in her and this and i can’t wait to get my hands on it.


BONUS:
all of the new cosmere books by brandon sanderson
i am going to be reading the first, tress of the emerald sea, very soon, too! but i did throw so much money at this man and his universe last year, and i am so excited for all the new stories to come in 2023!


okay, friends! those are my 10 (+ one… cosmere bonus) most anticipated releases for this new year! please let me know what yours are! i hope to be better about reading 2023 publications this year, and i am always looking to add more to my tbr! i hope you’re all staying safe and i am sending you a lot of love.

  1. Nice list! 😀
    Hoping your year is full of lots of great stories! ❤ I can't think of all the books I'm excited for this year (mentally drained at the moment lol) but one I'm looking forward to is the second book in Leigh Bardugo's Alex Stern series. 🙂

  2. I don’t really keep up with new releases all that well so I don’t really know what’s coming out usually until it’s released however there are a few authors that I keep up with and they have some releases coming out this year. I’m excited for the 5th and final volume of Heartstopper by Alice Oseman and Throne if the Fallen by Kerri Maniscalco. Also if Nicholas Sparks comes out with a book this year I will for sure be getting that but nothing has been announced yet that I’ve seen.

  3. Fantastic list! The Last Tale of the Flower Bride sounds so good and I LOVE that cover. I’m also so, so eager to read Yellowface, it sounds like it’s going to be AMAZING.
