January 2023 | New Releases
I went about starting this post and realized that I did not have that many 2023 releases on my radar, which was an issue. After spending a few hours scouring the internet, I am now able to give a more definitive list. I've got a pretty long list of the usual suspects, full of fantasy, sci-fi, horror and mystery novels. I am actually a bit surprised by the number of releases coming out this month.
Without further ado, here are the January 2023 releases that are on my radar!
