This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is about our most anticipated books for the second half of 2022, but I share my most anticipated releases every month and don’t want to bore you by repeating myself. So, I thought it would be fun to give you a sneak peek into some of the 2023 releases I am excited about. FYI, my 2023 shelf on Goodreads is currently sitting at 60 books…
Manslaughter Park is the third book in the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries series. I have had such a great time with the first two and I am curious to see what Tirzah Price does with Mansfield Park and its characters.
How to Sell a Haunted House was supposed to come out this summer but the release date has been pushed back to January 17th, 2023. Grady Hendrix has been hit or miss for me, but when his books hit they are some of my favourites. I love a good haunted house story, so I am eager to see what Hendrix does. That said, it does feel weird to have a Grady Hendrix novel coming out in the winter. His books scream summer to me!
Look at the cover for The Fraud Squad! It is just too good! It also releases on January 17th, so that is shaping up to be a huge release day. It is set in Singapore and follows a working-class woman who somehow finds herself infiltrating high society. That sounds like my vibe!
Not Your Ex’s Hexes is the second book in the Supernatural Singles, with the first book being Not the Witch You Wed. The first book really took me by surprise and I had a blast with it. I really enjoy the world that April Asher has built and I am excited to have more romances set in this world.
I think the cover for The Witch and the Vampire is one of the most striking covers that I have ever seen! It is a queer Rapunzel retelling following a witch and a vampire making their way through a cursed forest.
My Dear Henry is another book in that series of classic novels that are being remixed into YA novels written by popular authors. This is a Jekyll and Hyde retelling and I have liked a book from Kalynn Bayron in the past. I just love these remixes!
I love the tagline for Where Darkness Blooms– “The Flowers See Everything”. That, along with the cover, is chilling!
Seven Faceless Saints is the first in a dark fantasy series and there is also a murder mystery element. All I know is that it is queer and that it is childhood friends to enemies to lovers. I need it now!
I am picky when it comes to YA contemporary, but Where You See Yourself sounds like it will be perfect for me. We need more books with disability representation!
Delicious Monsters is said to be a mix of The Haunting of Hill House and Sadie and it is set in Northern Ontario, where I live. As I said earlier, I am always drawn to a haunted house story.
Are there any 2023 releases you are excited to read?

I hadn’t heard of any of these before, but they all look SPECTACULAR, omg.
Right?? We are being blessed with some amazing books next year. Look at those covers!!
I’m surprised I don’t know about more 2023 releases yet, I don’t know if authors or publishers just don’t want to commit to dates yet because things keep changing. However I do really want to read Hell Bent by Leigh Bardugo and A Day of Fallen Night by Samantha Shannon next year.
I think that is definitely part of it. Release dates are changing all the time!
I keep meaning to read something by Samantha Shannon.
The Witch And The Vampire!! That’s the one I’m most excited for <3
I am PUMPED for The Witch and the Vampire! Not only is the cover absolutely stunning, the concept sounds amazing. I really hope it comes out in early 2023.
March 21st! I bet the cover is even more beautiful in person!
I’m loving that cover for The Witch and the Vampire – and the title alone has me wanting to read it! I haven’t heard of any of these so thanks for putting some 2023 books on my radar! Crazy to think we’re more than halfway through 2022!!
One of my favourite covers ever! And I know. The last few months have really flown by for me!
Oooo enjoy! The Witch and the Vampire looks great!
It really does. The cover is my favourite thing!
How to Sell A Haunted House sounds really interesting. I’ll have to check that out. I’m also looking forward to Where Darkness Blooms! I hadn’t heard of Delicious Monsters, but I’m always up for haunted house stories, too! Definitely adding that one to my TBR, too. Hope you get to read all these!
Here’s my TTT post.
I love Grady Hendrix. He writes very campy horror and they are fun!
How good does Delicious Monsters sound??
I’ve been super bad at keeping track of the releases I’m excited for but The Fraud Squad is on my list too! I’m also very excited for How to Find a Missing Girl, I love a good YA thriller!
Ohh I just added it to my tbr. Thanks for putting it on my radar. YA thrillers are so fun!
Ooh, I’ll have to look into My Dear Henry (and the rest of the classic remixes… I’ve forgotten to keep up with those). I’m looking forward to the next Wayward Children book by Seanan McGuire which is due in January for sure!
I’m so behind on that series! I’ve realized I prefer the prequels.
The Witch and the Vampire sounds amazing!

It really does!
Haha, you’re very forward thinking!! I can’t believe I’m already planning my 2023 reading — the Grady Hendrix book for sure, and I do have a couple of other 2023 books already preordered.
I know!! It’s so wild to me that we can even preorder 2023 already!
Wow, you are very forward thinking! I have about 7 books on my 2023 release shelf, I’ve just not heard about many yet.

I just happen to see a lot of cover reveals on Twitter! I love looking for new releases!
Love that for you!
I am so excited about The Witch and the Vampire. And that cover is to die for. Great list!
One of my favourite covers for sure!
I love your twist on this week’s topic, even if I’m too mired down in 2022 reading to even think about 2023 yet. But seriously? The Witch and the Vampire – all I needed to hear was queer and Rapunzel and I’m SOLD!
Exactly!! I have such high hopes for that book. It sounds like everything I didn’t know I needed!
I just saw Manslaughter Park last night and added it to my TBR! I loved the first two books. These covers are so awesome too. I hope we both enjoy it!
They are such fun books and the titles are too perfect!
I really like Grady Hendrix’s work but I’d forgotten about the haunted house book. I’m excited! I met him in November at a book festival and he was really nice. I usually clam up at book signings but I was chatting away with him for a couple of minutes.
I hadn’t heard of the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries. I’ll have to check them out!
I hope you enjoy these when you read them!
That is amazing! I love hearing that authors are nice in person!
I love vampires. Love them. I’m going to put The Witch and the Vampire on my TBR. 😀 Thanks for putting it on my radar. I’m also interested in Grady Hendrix’s new book. I hope you enjoy all of these.
I love them too. I’m so glad vampires are in again!
I can’t wait to read more from Grady Hendrix!
Me too! I’m so excited that we are getting a haunted house book from him!
Whoa… All of these sound amazing! Great list!
Right?? I’m so excited for them all!
You’re way ahead of us thinking of 2023! Thanks for the recommendations!!
The Jane Austen Murder Mysteries series sounds really intriguing
They are really fun reads! The author does a treat job of writing a new story while having the original characters stay true to themselves.
