Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is a freebie post and honestly, I wasn’t feeling super inspired so I decided to go with a quick and straight-forward post: highlighting my favorite books of 2023 so far!

* Note: these are books I’ve read in 2023, but are not necessarily released in 2023

In reading order, here are my 10 favorites:

  1. It’s always fabulous to showcase our favorite reads! Glad you have some new favorites of the year so far. 🙂

    1. It really is! Thanks, Rissi 🙂

  2. Great list. Of them I’ve only read Mysteries of Thorn Manor and A Witch’s Guide and really liked both of them. I’ve had my eye on The Serpent and the Wings of Night for a while since I’ve been hearing such a buzz for it. But I haven’t gotten a copy yet.

    1. I hope you’ll love The Serpent and the Wings of Night! It’s definitely one of my favorites 🙂

  3. I have my eyes of The Fourth Wing. Did you enjoy it a lot?

    1. I LOVED Fourth Wing, hope you’ll love it too!

  4. I love those halfway mark book posts – collecting as many recs as I can for a rainy day and trying to read by proxy! Ninth House is something I want to finish this year, so Hell Bent is something I’m already looking forward to.

    1. I love these posts too! Ninth House and Hell Bent are some of my favorites, hope you’ll love both!

  6. I’ve heard so many good things about In the Lives of Puppets. Glad you liked it so much.

    1. It was definitely a favorite! 🙂

  7. I have Things We Never Got Over sitting on my shelf right now! I need to make time for it.

  8. I’m excited to read that TJ Klune book.

    1. It was different but still so good, I hope you’ll love it too!
