Hello readers! I think I’m finally getting back into the fantasy mood! I have a hard time reading a genre when I’m not in the mood for it. In 2023, I hope to read a ton of BIG fantasy books, but some might be smaller. Altogether, these books total over 12,000 pages, which isn’t bad if you consider having 12 months to read them all.
I don’t know if Maas is publishing anything in 2023, but I know I’m way behind on these two series.
I honestly tried this author not thinking I would like her and fell for her writing and characters. In fact, Hosue of Earth and Blood was one of my absolute favorite books I read in 2021! I buddy-read it with a ton of people on Instagram, which just made it better!
I’ve owned Priory now since 2020 and have yet to read it. A prequel is coming out in February and I think I’ll go ahead and add that to the list.
I’m just wondering if I should wait on the prequel and read it first, but I’m not sure. All I am sure about is I want to get to these in 2023!
This is another one that I acquired in the past few years and just haven’t got to yet. I have seen the movie for this one, but I still want to get to the source material. I’m not going to promise to read the whole series, though.
For now, I am only adding book one and we’ll see where that goes if I get to it.
It’s time I get to Mistborn Era 2! I read era 1 in 2021 and acquired 3 out of 4 of these books this year. The Lost Metal came out in November and I need to read it.
The only Sanderson book I read all year was Skyward, which I need to continue with that, too. He has so many books out, plus the 4 or 5 coming out this next year. I can’t keep up, but I’m going to try. I am manifesting an AMAZING reading year in 2023.
The Tress of Emerald See is also coming out in January and I’m excited to get to that, too. I did read a few of the first chapters on his website and I do like the writing style. I hope more books will come out in the Cosmere that is from the perspective of Hoid. I just really liked the writing style.
The Adventures of Amina Al-Sirafi comes out in March. It’s a historical fantasy about a pirate who goes on this job and finds more than she bargained for. It’s supposed to have some scifi elements, too.
I’ve never read from this author before, but I am excited about this one and might read her Daevebad series next.
I’m always adding these books to TBRs and not reading them. That may be the case here. I’m not sure. However, I hope it isn’t!
Even if I just read Return of the King, I would be satisfied with finishing a series.
I really do love this series, I just haven’t read anything in them in years. This was the first series I listened to on audio that had music and sound effects, which I love.
Booktuber Becca and the Books has this book club called The Catch Up Book Club where they read giant fantasy series. I’ve never read along with the book club before, but I’ve always wanted to!
They have been reading Robin Hobb for the past 3 years and are finally starting something new. I’m really excited to read these with the book club! The announcement just came out today and so I will be reading 6 out of the 10 books in the First Law World in 2023.
This is the perfect year to start The Locked Tomb series as the last book in the series is being published in October. I don’t know much about it other than it follows necromancers, is LGBT, and is an SFF book. I’m excited either way and I have a good feeling about the series.

There are some amazing fantasy books on here. I’m not a Sarah Maas fan but the others are all brilliant reads. Have a fantastic 2023 reading all of these.

Thanks! And thanks for leaving a comment. I know SJM is not for everyone and I honestly thought I wouldn’t like her before I did.
