Most Anticipated Releases of 2023: January to March

Weeee, I haven’t done one of these posts in a while! As we dive into another year, it’s time to look ahead to the Science Fiction and Fantasy reads I’m most excited about. I love making lists and I also find it helps me plan my reading schedule by focusing my attention on my review books and highly anticipated releases, so every quarter I’ll be putting together a post of my must-reads.

Believe it or not, this is me being very picky and I’ve already narrowed it down by a lot! While I’m under no illusions that I’ll be able to read them all, hopefully I can get to most of them, and also put some new books on people’s radars. I’ve gotten started on a few of these already, but how about you? What are you most excited for in early 2023?

  1. I just finished reading The Angel Maker and I got SO into that story. Great, great read and I hope you enjoy it at least as much as I did. I’m also curious to continue the story in The Cradle of Ice. I enjoyed the first book and thought he created a really interesting world.


    • That makes me so excited to hear! I featured Angel Maker on a Waiting on Wednesday so I’m definitely looking forward to it, even more so now. I also thought Rollins did a great job with the world building, I think this next book will be good 🙂


  2. I’m pretty intrigued by Tress Of The Emerald Sea but I haven’t read anything else by the author yet & imagined I’d be better off reading the other Cosmere books first. I can’t wait to read Hell Bent, especially after the way that Ninth House ended. I can’t wait for Arca either. Although so many of these are on my tbr too and I love the rise that seems to be occurring with fae books.


    • Yeah, Sanderson’s Cosmere can be pretty hardcore! But fortunately all his books can be read on their own without a deep understanding of the Cosmere, and to be honest I’m not too well versed on it either, too much to remember and I just can’t keep all the details straight 😀
