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?

I’m excited for all of these! It’s amazing how strong this first quarter looks. Hopefully a lot of them will be winners😁
Early 2023 definitely is packed with exciting releases!
So I have five of your January hopeful on my list too and the Foxglove King in March!
That’s awesome, I really hope we’ll love them all 🙂
I’m terrible with keeping up with the new releases, so most of these I was unaware of. I’ve definitely added several to my TBR
I’m glad I was able to put some of these on your radar!

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 🙂
Our lists are almost identical. And, I know you received (e)ARCs for almost all of the books you listed here; lucky.
I did mostly pull this list from review copies, since I have to prioritize them 😅

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 😀

Ah well thanks for letting me know. Maybe I’ll start with that one then. I honestly dont know how I haven’t read anything by the author yet 🙈
I’m excited for a lot of these too! And The Spite House totally caught my attention so I’m going to have to add it as well.
