I should have done this sooner, but here it is: a look at those "Most Anticipated Books" lists. This time checking some 2023 YA releases that I might like.

Will do other categories (Fantasy, Horror, Sci-Fi) later on. This is comes from GoodReads

Immortality: A Love Story (by Dana Schwartz) is the second volume in the The Anatomy duology. I read the first volume and thought it was good, so I already went ahead and pre-ordered the hardcover for this new one so I have the complete set on print.

Wildblood (by Lauren Blackwood) is a historical fantasy set in a Jamaican jungle? How NOT to be interested on that? Personally I would prefer this to not be YA, but if they don't go too hard on extra romance/romantic triangle, it can be GREAT!

She Is a Haunting (by Trang Thanh Tran) is targeted towards Mexican Gothic fans. Add to that the Vietnam setting, Ghosts, Paranormal, Queer hashtags, and yeah, I'll be reading this one. Just need to decide if physical or eBook.

Nightbirds (by Kate J. Armstrong) also sounds pretty interesting, and yeah, it's another queer historical fantasy. This one sounds very interesting, but being the first in a series, I might end up passing on it. Maybe I'll keep an eye on it and get the whole thing after the series is done?

Zhara (by S. Jae-Jones) is marketed as Sailor Moon meets Cinder. It's high-fantasy, asian literature, and... magical girls? And with THAT cover. I'll see how this goes, and how many books are planned - since I don't wanna start long series for quite some time.
