Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is 2023 Debut Books I’m Excited About — but I really don’t tend to get very excited about debut books in advance (and don’t even keep track of upcoming debuts), so this topic was a non-starter for me.
Instead, I thought I’d spin off from the designated topic, moving from books by new authors to books by authors who are new to me. Much easier to come up with a list of ten!
Here are ten authors whose books I plan (or hope) to try in 2023:
- Farrah Rochon
- Deepa Varadarajan
- Victor LaValle
- Claire Keegan
- Nikki Erlick
- Colleen Oakley
- Jenni Fagan
- Trish Doller
- Nita Prose
- Deesha Philyaw
Two of these (Nikki Erlick and Claire Keegan) are authors of books my book group will be reading later this year, and the rest are an assortment of books that I’ve had on my radar for a while plus a couple of ARCs.
Have you read any of the books pictured above, or read other books by these authors? Are there any in particular you’d recommend?

Love Farrah Rochon! Hope you love all these books!
Her books came highly recommended — can’t wait to try them. 🙂 Thank you!
I think you’ll love Claire Keegan 🙌
I’m excited for the book… although I’ll be waiting until December to read it, since that’s when it’s my book group’s pick.
The Secret Lives of Church Ladies was very good. Enjoy!

I’ve heard such good things!
I love your twist on the topic and I hope you love these all.
Thank you! So much to look forward to!
I enjoyed The Maid very much and hope you like it too. Keegan is on my list for 2023 as well!
I’m really looking forward to The Maid! I keep hearing how much fun it is.
I hope you enjoy these!
Enjoy! I’ve only read Small Things, so can’t comment. The title Lone Women interests me though.
I honestly can’t remember right now what the description of Lone Women was, but I know it interested me enough to want to read it! 🙂
THE MAID is a great read! It’s clever and funny and just very entertaining. I hope you enjoy it and all these others.
Thank you! Definitely excited for The Maid.
I love that we came up with the same idea😁 I would also love to try Nita Prose!
Great minds 🙂
The Maid was SO GOOD!!! I’ve read two Trish Doller books and have mixed feelings about her books at this point, however!
I keep seeing her books pop up on my recommendations list, and I’m curious!
I hope you enjoy reading Victor LaValle!
Thank you! I’ve heard good things!
I’ve not read any of these authors before, but I hope you enjoy their books!
