Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s a Love/Valentine’s Day freebie and I wanted to highlight some new and upcoming romance books (releasing in 2023) that I haven’t talked about yet, but am still super excited about.

I mean, I have raved already about upcoming releases like Happy Place, The True Love Experiment, Meet Me At The Lake and Love Theoretically. They’ve been featured in my Top Ten Tuesday and Can’t Wait Wednesday posts before. But they’re not the only romances to look forward to. Yes, THERE ARE EVEN MORE ROMANCE BOOKS TO LOOK FORWARD TO! Here are 10 MORE romance books I’m looking forward to reading.

  3. This is a new trend in book covers, isn’t it? The comic book version – reminds me of the Archie comics!

    1. Haha yeah they do all have similar looks lately – I like it though 🙂

  4. I’m excited for The New Guy! Sarina Bowen is such a favorite of mine and she never disappoints.

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever read any Sarina Bowen-only books (only Him and Us), but I’m definitely eager to read more by her!

    1. Thanks so much!

  18. I love the cover of The Do Over. I hope you enjoy all these!

    1. It is such a pretty cover indeed. Thanks!

  19. Wow, I hadn’t heard of any of these romances. What a fun list. Honestly I don’t much pay attention to romance releases, unless they are fantasy or paranormal…although I do pick up some contemporary romances if they sound fun.

    Great post!

    1. I do also love fantasy or paranormal romances, though I tend to gravitate more towards contemporary romance lately.

      1. There’s nothing wrong with that. I enjoy contemporary romances every so often as well. I’m definitely more in a fantasy/paranormal romance mood right now, though. The contemporary romance mood tends to strike around the beginning of summer most of the time for me now.

        1. Summer is indeed a perfect time for contemporary romance! And I’m sure I’ll get back to fantasy romances soon enough, for now I’ll just go where my mood takes me and that’s indeed okay 🙂

          1. Follow that reading mood!

  20. I’m excited for so many of these! I actually just finished The Neighbor Favor and loved it.

    1. Yay, so glad to hear you enjoyed The Neighbor Favor, I’m looking forward to reading that one too!
