Cracking open a fresh new hardback novel is one of life's greatest pleasures. Flicking through hundreds of yet-to-be-read pages of a haunting memoir, a gossipy beach read, groundbreaking non-fiction or a local thriller fills us with endless excitement. What will we learn? How will this book leave us?
That anticipation is only amplified when it comes to new releases. Thank goodness for us, 2023 is providing many incredible reads to get lost in. Exciting new works of fiction like Crushing by Genevieve Novak and Happy Place by Emily Henry are set to drop in April, as well as an array of other novels of romance to historical fiction to crime that we'll see being released in the next couple of months.
Here is our list of the most exciting book releases of 2023.
