What's the topic for my first Top Ten Tuesday? New releases in 2023 to look forward to. I'm not sure how other people discover books that are going to be published/to look forward to, but I go to Amazon or Indigo and type in authors I love to read and see if any of them have upcoming books. Not very efficient and I'm sure I miss a bunch of upcoming books. I'm not a pre-order book person anyway.
First of all, thank you to a few of my favourite authors: Emma Donoghue, Maggie O'Farrell, Kate Atkinson who all released books in the end of 2022. I couldn't wait to get to Haven by Donoghue and Shrines of Gaiety by Atkinson. The Marriage Portrait by O'Farrell I won't get to until later this month, but Haven and Shrines of Gaiety, both historical British fiction did not disappoint.
Here's some books I'm looking forward to:
Catherine Hernandez - The Story of Us (Feb 28)
Elly Griffiths - The Last Remains (Apr 28) Ruth Galloway
The Lives of Puppets - TJ Klune (Apr 25)
And then to the authors who I discovered had released books in 2022, but only realized as I was looking for upcoming releases: (so they feel like books to look forward to, lol)
Fiona Barton - Local Gone Missing (Jul 2022)
Alexander McCall Smith - The Song of Comfortable Chairs (Sep 2022)
Cynthia Hand - My Imaginary Mary, My Contrary Mary (Jun, Aug 2022)
