The Most Anticipated Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of 2023, According to Goodreads
In addition to a list of the Most Anticipated 2023 horror releases, Goodreads has also released a Most Anticipated list for Science Fiction and Fantasy. They note that 2023 will be a great year for speculative reading, with a mix of releases of very buzzy books and those by popular authors, like Salmon Rushdie, Chloe Gong, Brandon Sanderson, Leigh Bardugo, and Martha Wells.
Goodreads assembled the list by looking at a few things — books that had been shelved as “Want to read” by Goodreads members, author fanbase, and buzz. Fantasy was also separated from Science Fiction, but there is, of course, some overlap.
Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson , illustrated by Howard Lyon (one of the books that came out of his Kickstarter project)
Immortal Longings by Chloe Gong
Hell Bent by Leigh Bardugo
Victory City by Salmon Rushdie
