Here are some of the most anticipated books coming out before the end of 2023

When Netflix’ hit teen series Heartstopper debuted in 2022 the 4th volume in the graphic novel series by Alice Oseman had been out for several months, allowing fans from both media to steep themselves in repeated viewing and readings while they awaited more episodes and another book. The 2nd season came out this past summer to swoons and sighs—and at long last the 5th installment in the achingly sweet graphic novel series is here.

As the holiday shopping season revs up, it’s worth bearing in mind that after the gifts are given the credit card bill comes, and for some that’s a moment of confusion and despair. So TikTok personal finance star Vivan Tu (aka. “Your Rich BFF”) is here with Rich AF: The Winning Money Mindset That Will Change Your Life to share the lessons she learned on Wall Street about how wealthy people think about money differently. For readers skeptical of Lu’s promises of riches, there’s financial educator Tiffany “the Budgetnista” Aliche’s Made Whole: The Practical Guide to Reaching Your Financial Goals; her no-nonsense approach involves demystifying financial jargon, providing readers with worksheets and checklists they can put to work immediately, and tips for making the most of whatever you’ve got. Whichever route you choose, once you’ve got your finances in order, celebrate by making something from Single AF Cocktails: Drinks for Bad B*tches.

Readers who’ve look longingly over the ocean towards the UK and Europe every award season, wondering when all the Booker Prize-nominated books will be available here can now get their hands on the long-listed novel Little Bird-Hearts by Viktoria Lloyd-Barlow, about a mother and daughter who are suddenly (and suspiciously) befriended by the boundary-disintegrating albeit extremely charismatic couple that just moved in next door; as well as Prophet Song by Paul Lynch, which was a finalist for the prize and tells the story of a near-future fascist Ireland.

And because the state of the world right now is mentally taxing in a way that evolution never prepared our hominid brains for, it’s a good time for Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life, the classic guide to meditation that was first published in 1994 and has been revised to reflect research findings on the neuroscience of meditation and mindfulness practice.
