Well, it's here! One of my favorite posts of the year! It's always so hard to narrow down my favorite reads and there are so many books that came out in 2023 that I just simply didn't get to. I think one of my goals in 2024 will be to read more of the books filling up my shelves. What about you? Any bookish goals? Without further ado, here are my favorite books of the year and be sure to let me know yours in the comments below.

That just about covers it! What a reading year it has been! Let me know your favorite books of the year in the comments below. Did we have some of the same favorites?


  1. Lots of great ones on there! I hope 2024 is just as wonderful!

  2. Homecoming and Maybe Next Time are both making my best of 2023 list, too! I still have a couple of these on my TBR, so that makes me even more excited to read them. I did a pretty good job of reading from my own shelves this year, but it always needs to be a goal, because I just keep acquiring more books!

    1. Right? I completely agree. I have so many books on my shelf that I need to read. Glad we have some of the same picks as "Best of." Thanks for visiting!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
