My Top 23 Books in 2023

 What a year 2023 was for books. So many great releases from debuts to follow ups in series and go to authors that continue to write fantastic stories.

In total, I read 150 books (a nice even number) so it was difficult to pick just 23 books as my stand-out favourites. But I did it so read on to see which novels I loved. Let me know if you've read any of them or if you perhaps still have them on your tbr list.

In no particular order . . .

Still Life by Sarah Winman

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

Another Life by Jodie Chapman

Now She is Witch by Kirsty Logan

Heart Bones by Colleen Hoover

Fall of Ruin and Wrath by Jennifer L Armentrout

Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson

How to Build a Boat by Elaine Feeney 

Where the Light Goes by Sara Barnard

Four Winds by Kristin Hannah

Children of the Sun by Beth Lewis

Bad Summer People by Emma Rosenblum

Threadneedle by Cari Thomas

Because of You by Dawn French

Love After Love by Ingrid Persaud

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

The Stargazers by Harriet Evans

The Moongate by Amanda Geard

Nothing Serious by Emma Medrano

Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu

Out of all of the books mentioned above, if I had to pick just one book to recommend it would have to be The House in the Cerulean Sea. Klune just has a special way of writing. This story in particular really warmed my heart and I'm so excited for the sequel Somewhere Beyond the Sea which is releasing in September this year. A top 24 contender?
