Top Ten Tuesday: Most Anticipated Books Releasing During the Second Half of 2023

Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the themis Most Anticipated Books Releasing During the Second Half of 2023.  Normally I have to go looking for books for this prompt but there are so many good books coming out over the next few months!

Codenamed Charming by Lucy Parker - I read the first book in this series a couple of years ago and have been waiting for this ever since.

Daisy and Kate by Meredith Appleyard - This author was at the retreat I went to last month and the book sounds good. It doesn't hurt that the cover is gorgeous.

The Girl from Portofino by Siobhan Daiko - I read The Girl from Venice a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it so I am on the lookout for this one.

Back on Track by Tricia Stringer - Another author who was at the retreat, this book is primarily set on the train that goes from Adelaide to Darwin,  The Ghan, which is a trip I would love to do at some point.

Family Lore by Elizabeth Acevedo - This is this author's first adult book. I loved the YA book I have read by her so hopefuly that this would be good.

At the Coffee Shop of Curiosities by Heather Webber - I have enjoyed this authors previous books!

Lady Tan's Circle of Women by Lisa See - So looking forward to this one. I really enjoyed her last book.

System Collapse by Martha Wells - The fact that I still haven't read the last book in the series doesn't mean that I can't be excited about this one!

The Phoenix Crown by Kate Quinn and Janie Chang
- Kate Quinn. Need I say more!

The Paris Agent by Kelly Rimmer - Very excited about this one!

Do you have any of these books on your list this week?


  1. I’m looking forward to Lady Tan’s Circle of Women, too.

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.


  2. Codename Charming sounds like a lot of fun. I've read and liked a couple of her books. I hope you love it.

  3. I really need to get caught up on the Murderbot Diaries soon!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  4. I've loved some of Lisa See's books, so I'll have to look out for Lady Tan's Circle of Women.

    1. Same Helen! This one sounds really good!

  5. You have a few books here that I'm tempted to add to my TBR.
    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  6. I'm looking forward to many of these as well. I hope we both enjoy them!

    Happy TTT!

  7. A Coffee Shop of Curiosities sounds so much fun. Happy reading! My TTT https://readwithstefani.com/mid-year-book-freak-out-tag-2023/

    My TTT post is HERE. Have a great week! — Diana

  9. Sadly The Phoenix Crown's release date has been pushed to February, which I only found out because I was also going to put it on my list (Kate Quinn is one of my favourite authors so I'm also super excited for it) and when checking to find the cover, I saw that the release date had been changed! Very sad. Still, I'm sure we'll both enjoy it just as much next year :)
