Finally! Let’s talk reading again, specifically my favorite books of 2023 so we can move onto what lies ahead in 2024.
It was an interesting year in that I don’t remember another time when I had this many 5-star nonfiction books. I’m not even sure I’ve ever read so much great nonfiction in one year (and I’m too lazy to go back and check)! Somehow, 2023 came together neatly with four fiction and four nonfiction favorites in a wide variety of genres and topics.
