2023 is going to be a great reading year. There are so many new releases coming by some of my favorite authors! My top three genres right now are suspense, historical, and split time, and you’ll definitely see that reflected in my list. Here’s what I’m looking forward to the most in the first half of 2023.
February: A Cry in the Dark by Jessica R. Patch
Maybe this is a little bit of a cheat since I got to read an early copy of this book, but wow, I love this series! Patch writes some creepy serial killers that would give the Criminal Minds team a run for their money. If you love suspense, you have to check out this series!
February: The Weight of Air by Kimberly Duffy
I’ve become fascinated with historical circus books over the past couple of years. This is an author I’ve wanted to read for a while, and I’m really excited about this book! And this cover is so gorgeous.
March: The Metropolitan Affair by Jocelyn Green
Another historical fiction from a new-to-me author I’ve heard great things about.
March: Under Fire by Lynn H. Blackburn
Another favorite suspense author has the third book in her newest series releasing in March, and I can’t wait!
April: The Vanishing at Castle Moreau by Jaime Jo Wright
Jaime Jo Wright’s books are the perfect amount of creepy, with a ghost story feel (minus any actual ghosts). I’m so excited for this book!
April: Broker of Lies by Steven James
James is another Criminal Minds style suspense author. I loved his Bowers Files series!
June: A Fatal Illusion by Anna Lee Huber
The Lady Darby Mysteries are some of my absolute favorite books right now. Great characters, a wonderful setting, and an absolutely fabulous narrator for the audiobooks (which are the only copies my library has) make this a can’t-miss series.
June: To Calm a Storm by Heather Day Gilbert and Jen Cudmore
I love reading about the Vikings, and I loved book one in this series. Gilbert spins beautifully written stories with unforgettable characters.
June: The Best Summer of our Lives by Rachel Hauck
I don’t even have to know what a Rachel Hauck book is about—if she wrote it, I’ll read it, and I know it will be great.
What books are you looking forward to most this year?
The Vanishing at Castle Moreau looks interesting for sure!

Great list! I read Green’s The Windy City saga and enjoyed it, so I’m definitely up for another book by her. I didn’t realize she had a new one coming out, so thanks for the heads-up. THE WEIGHT OF AIR also looks really good and, I agree, that cover is stunning. I hope you enjoy all these.
This looks like a great reading list! Enjoy!
I’m going to have to check out the Lady Darby Mysteries. They look like good reads.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
I think the same way with Rachel Hauck, as soon as I saw it was coming out I put it on my TBR. Great list!
I think I will need to read up on The Metropolitan Affair. I hope you enjoy all of these when you get the opportunity to read them.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
I hope you enjoy all of these.
