Books I Read in 2023 // Reading Update

It’s been quite a while since I’ve had the time to sit down and write, but I’m happy to be getting back into a routine. I thought I would take the time to start off strong with a round-up of all the books I read in 2023 – essentially, a reading update!

Among the books I’ve read this past year, you’ll find that a majority consist of YA books. This is my favourite genre and I tend to stick to what I like; though I do welcome any suggestions for the months (and years) to come, regardless of genre.

For each category, I’ve simply listed the books I read, the name of the author and my star rating based out of 5 stars.
