Books Read in 2023

Cumulative Reading List

Here's where I'll be tracking my reading in 2023. I'm getting a late start with the list, and didn't manage to do any reading in January or February. But my goal for 2023 is a lot lower than most years. If I read a book or two a month during the rest of this year, I'll be satisfied. 


1. High Rising (Barsetshire #1). Angela Thirkell (1933; fiction)


2. Wild Strawberries (Barsetshire #2). Angela Thirkell (1934; fiction) 
3. Bramton Wick. Elizabeth Fair (1952; fiction) 


4. The Windsors at War: The King, His Brother, and a Family Divided. Alexander Larman (2023; nonfiction / history)


5. Landscape in Sunlight. Elizabeth Fair (1953; fiction) 


6. Death Comes to Marlow (Marlow Murder Club #2). Robert Thorogood (2023; fiction / mystery)


7. Looking Glass Sound. Catriona Ward (2023; fiction / horror) 


8. The Heiress. Rachel Hawkins (2024; fiction / thriller) 


9. The Messy Lives of Book People. Phaedra Patrick (2022; fiction / women's fiction / adult fantasy) 
10. The Love Story of Missy Carmichael. Beth Morrey (2020; fiction / women's fiction)


11. I Heard a Fly Buzz When I Died (Emily Dickinson Mystery #2). Amanda Flower (2023; fiction / mystery / historical fiction) 


12. When You Are Engulfed in Flames. David Sedaris (2008; nonfiction / humor / essays)

  1. Angela Thirkell is a delight to read, I read those two you list here.

  2. I mean to read The Heiress but haven't gotten to it as yet. Hope it was good.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
