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.
➽ 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.
