Most anticipated, upcoming, and popular book releases of January 2023 As 2022 comes to a close, here’s a look at the thing I’m most looking forward to when making my next reading list—the “line-up de resistance!”.
So, all you bookworms out there, Christmas is gone and the New Year is fast approaching. And even as another year sizzled by (oh yes, it literally spit and spurted away like a firecracker, didn’t it?) We still await the release of new books, hoping to be lost in yet another great read in a new world, hoping to dive into the skin of newer characters, breathing through the senses of yet more diverse nuanced beings, reflecting their quirks, beating the battle black and blue through their bleeding hearts, and emerging far more victorious than a warrior.
Wondering why I am speaking so philosophically today? Well, with the New Year 2023 upon us, I thought of sharing with you a list of the 10 most anticipated, upcoming, and popular book releases of January 2023.
Yes, being an avid reader and a bookworm who can rarely be satiated, I must commend how 2022 was a year so fulfilling for me and also overwhelming, all at once, that I felt like a swab cloth, all soaked up and ready to be wrung out again, spurting out myself clean of my thoughts, inhibitions, and abominations (oops, there I go again, the fraud ol’ poetic me eh 😊). So, um, never mind.
Let’s get straight into the list of the 10 most anticipated, upcoming, and popular book releases of January 2023:
Liar, Dreamer, Thief by Maria Dong
So here, Katrina, the main protagonist, knows her co-worker Kurt’s life inside and out (nope, she isn’t a stalker, guys!). And yet, when she follows him to a bridge late at night, she witnesses him jump to his death, right after he tells her “it’s your fault..”. So, she is the victim here, right guys? Maybe not, apparently. The perfect read for fans of Severance by Ling Ma (I’m kind of biased towards this one, you know). releasing on January 10, 2023.
How to sell a Haunted House by Grady Hendrix
Ok, heads up fans of “The Final Girl Support Group”, Grady is back with a terrifying, heartfelt and funny story of 2 siblings who are locked in a battle, trying to sell their late parents’ house. Oh, uh and the house wants in on the wrestling too and it doesn’t help that it is also so full of dolls that can’t seem to stay put. You will probably be wary even of your kiddos’ toys and plushies after reading this one, I’d say. Coming to spook you on January 17th 2023.
The Faraway World: Stories by Patricia Engel
A set of 10 compelling tales that follow realistic characters, struggling, unique and universal. Stories that will touch your heart, making you envision other humans more amicably and generously. Surely, a compilation not to be missed at any cost, Patricia’s work is surely being much sought after, following the success of “Infinite Country”. Releasing on January 24th, 2023.
Someone Else’s Shoes by Jojo Moyes
A heartwarming tale of 2 women who are living in different circumstances and get a chance to walk in each other’s shoes after a bag mix-up at the gym. From the best-selling Author of “Me Before You” comes a fresh new tale of reinvention that might just inspire you to go and make a change yourself yeah. Coming in February 2023 though, go and pre-order this one in January 2023 you guys (ok, honestly am biased for this one, so it appears here)
Spare by Prince Harry
Well, none more excitable, controversial and anticipated than this one. A memoir, this one is written by Prince Harry, the second son of King Charles III and his first wife Diana, Princess of Wales. Speaking candidly about his life as a second child in line for succession, and his marriage which has led to drama with the British press as well as with the Royal family, this is one book I simply cannot await longer, what with multiple theories and controversies encircling this one. releasing on January 10, 2023.

An excellent domestic thriller, this sophomore novel has multiple twists and will keep you hooked and gripped at every page with super high-end character development. Bookmark this one to read all the good and bad facets of motherhood and how!

Age of Vice by Deepti Kapoor
An epic family drama as well as a crime thriller, this one tells the story of a playboy heir of a wealthy family, a poor servant rising along the ranks, and a journalist caught between ethics and ambition. So, if you want to know what happened the night the five characters in the story were killed, you’ll have to read the book.

The Nazi Conspiracy by Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch
When in 1943 President Franklin Roosevelt proposed a meeting with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin for building a crucial war strategy, the Nazis, a part of Hitler’s regime, coined a plot to assassinate all 3, world leaders.

Exes and O’s (The Influencer Series) by Amy Lea
Okay, I will be honest again. Another title I’m looking forward to is: What happens when a romance novel-obsessed social media influencer revisits her exes in her search for true love? Pandemonium or fun? Well, pick this one up and read it to find out more. Hmm, if you ever felt that your bookish boyfriend character could exist in real life, then this is the one for you.
