Whether you’re hoping to stay up all night reading thrillers that will leave you spooked for weeks or find a book that makes you believe in the constancy of love, 2023 has some of the best new books coming for you.

Debut authors like Monica Brashears, Jessica George, and Heather Darwent to leave their marks on the literary scene this year. Jennifer Robson, Natalie Haynes, and Kelly Barnhill put a twist on classic stories, and you can count on more magic from fantasy favorites such as Leigh Bardugo, Cassandra Clare, and M.K. Lobb. On top of that, love is in the air with more from Jojo Moyes, Helena Hunting, Abby Jiminez, and Katherine Center, and fans of nonfiction will enjoy works from Samantha Irby, Greta Thunberg, Elliot Page, Prince Harry, and Britney Spears.

We know you can’t wait to see how authors like Ali Hazelwood, Emily Henry, Karen M. McManus, and more will follow up their respective #BookTok hall-of-farmers “Love on the Brain,” “People on Vacation,” and “One of Us Is Lying,” among others, so prepare for your TBR list to get a whole lot longer.
