The books I loved reading in 2023


The books I loved reading in 2023,

To all my dear bookworms everywhere, I give you a list of the books that have brought me joy, inspiration, knowledge, wisdom, or comfort in 2023. While I read over 100 books in 2023, I have limited the list to the ones I most enjoyed and that I can confidently recommend to you. I divided the list into categories to help you peruse the selections. I always appreciate receiving your feedback and suggestions for other literary gems that I have yet to discover. Happy reading!
