2023 Book Releases

Unlike the past years I’ve reduced my anticipated book releases to the ones I’m really prioritizing reading in the new year. In past years I’ve filled the list to the brim and never manage to make my way through all of them. With this list of 10 I’m more confident I can prioritize these top book releases for 2023.
