I’m jumping on reading challenge 2023 earlier this year so I can get as many books in as possible.
I already have about 12 books on the waiting list and it’s only January. lol.
As you can see, I buy books faster than I can read them but thus the life of a reader.
I launched my reading challenge in 2020 to develop a great habit, and improve my mind while also improving my writing skills.
I’m very optimistic about how many books I can get through this year despite having to go back to school in February but I always love a challenge.
Reading Challenge 2023 List
So, here are the 12 books I’ve already lined up for reading challenge 2023. I’ll be breaking down month by month as I work my way through the list:-
- Beyond the Wand by Tom Felton – 3.5/5
- I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy – 4.5/5
- 142 Ostriches by April Davila
- Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
- Hide by Tracy Clark – my friend swears I’m going to love this whodunnit!
- The Night Swim by Megan Goldin
- The Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell
- Those Who Wish Me Dead by Michael Kortya – I, unfortunately, watched the movie before I bought this book and did not like the movie at all. Hopefully, the book makes up for it.
- The Good Wife of Bath by Karen Brooks
- The Way the Crow Flies by Ann-Marie Macdonald
- Find You First by Linwood Barclay
- Wielder’s Prize by Elle Cardy
The list is a bit more varied this year. I’ve also joined a book club at work and I’m interested to see if that gets me to read even more books.
As always, I’m also reading a few personal finance and mental health books behind the lines which fill my non-fiction quota.
This year, I’m also hoping to review some of the books I’ve been reading since 2020.
