Happy New Year, dear readers! I pray that 2023 is a year of joyful days and great reads for each of you. As promised yesterday, during our bird’s eye view look at Early 2023 New Releases, today I’m going to break down the January 2023 New Releases that are on my radar. These 65 titles comprise a range of genres – contemporary, historical, cozy mystery, suspense, Amish fiction, children’s books, YA, speculative, and even a nonfiction one. And, of course, expect to see lots of romance because it’s me, after all 🙂 All books listed are Christian or clean in content, to the best of my knowledge.

  1. Wow!! This is awesome! Thank you Carrie! Its going to take me all month to go through this and blow up my TBR mountain completely off the map!😂💣📚🤗💜

    I think my New Year’s resolution should have been to avoid checking out your new release lists! Yikes! I have 5 of these on my reading schedule, but there are SO MANY enticing books releasing this month!

    And I know you’re not even sorry you’re adding a bunch to my TBR pile and adding to my anxiety because I’ll never be able to read them all! (But, thanks anyway!) Love you, my BFFFC!
