Top Ten Tuesday

TTT – Most Anticipated Books Releasing In The First Half Of 2023

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

There’s a bunch of great books being released in 2023 that are on my radar so far, and I’ve already been lucky enough to get my hands on some of them—mostly as ARCs, but also one as a preorder, and you’ll be seeing them reviewed on my blog soon (although I’m still holding off on hyping HarperCollins books and their imprints until the strike is successfully resolved). Here’s the books I’m really excited about that I don’t have access to yet:

  1. River Sing Me Home by Eleanor Shearer (January 31) — this historical fiction set immediately after the end of slavery in Barbados sounded so intriguing when I first heard about it.
  2. The Woman With the Cure by Lynn Cullen (February 21) — historical fiction based on a true story about a female doctor who worked on the polio vaccine, and it sounds fascinating.
  3. A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon by Sarah Hawley (March 7) — this paranormal romance sounds cute and quirky.
  4. The Last Russian Doll by Kristin Loesch (March 17) — I was sold pretty quickly on this historical fiction spanning three generations of women, from the Russian Revolution through the fall of the USSR.
  5. The Thick and the Lean by Chana Porter (April 18) — this dystopian fantasy sounds pretty intriguing.
  6. Happy Place by Emily Henry (April 25) — all I need to know is that it’s Emily Henry and I want it.
  7. Margo Zimmerman Gets the Girl by Sara Waxelbaum & Brianna R. Shrum (May 2) — queer Jewish YA romance? Yep, I need it.
  8. The True Love Experiment by Christina Lauren (May 16) — here’s another one, where all I need to know is that it’s by Christina Lauren.
  9. Mrs. Nash’s Ashes by Sarah Adler (May 23) — romance with a grumpy/sunshine forced proximity road trip dynamic? This one sounds right up my alley.
  10. The Whispers by Ashley Audrain (June 20) — After reading The Push, how could I not be curious about this new domestic thriller?

What are some books coming out in the first half of 2023 that you’re excited for? Were any of these on your list?
