In 2023, I didn’t read quite as many books as I wanted to. Honestly, I just got so damn busy! But now that it’s a brand new year, I’m going to do my best to get back in the reading groove. And what better way than to make a list of the hot new releases for 2024?

So, with that in mind, here are the books coming out this year that are on my Can’t Wait To Read list!

15 New Releases To Read in 2024

To make it easier, I’ve broken this list of Hot New Releases down into three distinct sections: Winter, Spring, and Summer. This is, of course, not an exhaustive list. There are tons of books being released this year, but these are just the ones I’m MOST excited about.

Most Anticipated Winter Books

Here are the books coming out in January and February of 2024 that I’m SUPER excited about! I’ve already got one of them ready to go (First Lie Wins) and I’m hoping it’ll help me break out of the reading rut I’ve been in for a while.
