These are some of the books that I enjoyed reading in2023. I primarily read fantasy books so most of these books will be from that genre.

1. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins:

This book is a prequel to The Hunger Games. It takes place during the 10th hunger games and those games look much different than Katniss’s during the 74th games. It’s wonderfully written and in my opinion seems more realistic than The Hunger Games series. It has many songs and a very interesting cliffhanger.

2. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon:

This story takes place in Scotland following the character Claire Randall during 1946. Claire is on vacation with her husband but is mistakenly and magically taken back in time during 1743. Claire has to find out where and when her heart belongs, if that be during 1743 Scotland or 1946 with her husband.

3. The Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros:

Violet Sorrengail was destined to be a scribe but her mother has different plans for her and forces her to join the dragon riders. This story is filled with dragons, action and romance.

4. The Push by Ashley Audrain:

This book talks about a new mother, Blythe, and shows her trying her hardest to be perfect for her daughter and husband but she soon starts to believe that there is something wrong with her daughter Violet. Blythe’s husband doesn’t see what she does and doesn’t believe there is anything wrong with Violet.

5. The Evening and The Morning by Ken Follet:

Edgar and his family make boats for a living during the year 997, there is a Viking raid in their village and their business is crushed. Edgar and what is left of his family has to restart their life on a farm. This book follows their struggle to make a life out of what little they were given. The Evening and The Morning is a very addicting read even though it is a long book

6. All Thirteen: The Incredible Cave Rescue of the Thai Boys' Soccer Team by Christina Soontornvat

A true story recounting the events of a boys soccer team who became stuck in Tham Luang cave. This book explains the risks it took to get the boys out of the cave alive.

7. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss:

Follows the story of an orphan, Kvothe, and how he is accepted to a university and learns to use magic. This book is an obsessive read filled with action, romance, and it barely feels as if you are reading, more like you are experiencing Kvothe’s life right beside him.

8. Fire and Blood by George Martin:

For any A Song of Ice and Fire fans this book gives the history of the House Targaryen. It retells many generations of this house and a very intriguing read.

9. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch:

A story of a group of con artists as they try to attempt the biggest heist yet. The story also has flashbacks into how Locke Lamora became who he is now. The chemistry between the characters is really well written.

10. The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin:

This book was initially hard to get into but by the end I really enjoyed it. This book is set in a dystopian world and covers themes like oppression, power and freedom.
