Anticipated First Quarter Reads

It seems like anticipated reads lists are fairly ubiquitous across the book blogging sphere. Or, at least, I personally see them often at the beginning of each month. However, I loathe formatting book list posts. It seems simple, but if you blog, you’ll understand all that goes into it. That said, I thought I’d try participating in this type of post. Because of my aforementioned dislike of formatting, I’m focusing on anticipated 2023 first quarter reads.

This means I’ll list books that will be published between January and March. All of the books below intrigue me, but I’m on a mission to read from my physical backlog.

2023 Reading and Bookish Goals

Hello, 2023! This will be the second full year that I’ve had this little space in which to ramble about books. So that means it’s time to make some 2023 reading goals! Many of them will be similar to last year. Regardless, I think it’s nice to make goals because they serve as an end point for reflection once the year ends.

WWW Wednesday: January 4, 2022

I know, I know, I haven’t posted a book review in a hot second. That’s what the end of a year and holiday busy-ness and 2022 wrap-ups will do to a blog! I’ll have a book review up next week, I promise.

Anyway, for those who are unfamiliar, WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme revived and hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

The idea is to answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses.
