Books I have Read This Year

Top post on Blogchatter

Three months have passed in 2023 and the books I have read so far are:

1. Last Lullaby by Carol Wyer
2. The Sleepover by Carol Wyer
3. The Blossom Twins by Carol Wyer
4. The Secret Admirer by Carol Wyer
5. Somebody’s Daughter by Carol Wyer
6. The Birthday by Carol Wyer
7. Why I am an Atheist by Bhagat Singh
8. Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin
9. Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig

So far I have finished reading these nine books. The first six are all by Carol Wyer and they follow the life of detective inspector Natalie Ward as she moves through Samford, UK solving murders. With these 6 books I have completed the Natalie Ward series published so far and they have all been fast paced and interesting. I have always had a thing for murder mysteries, CID on Sony TV had been my favourite show for a long long time (My Mom and I still watch the reruns sometimes 😉).

I picked up Why I am an Atheist, a small book written by Shaheed Bhagat Singh while he was imprisoned in Lahore Jail. This book is about why he didn’t believe in religion and prayers.

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig is about his journey through depression. What he went through in his depression and his deepest darkest thoughts. He talks about his struggle and how his family and girlfriend helped him through it. One must read this one to understand and help their near ones through depression. Give everyone a reason to stay alive.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow is a book by Gabrielle Zevin about two people who make video games. They had first met at a hospital when they were kids and instantly bonded over their love for video games. Due to some misunderstanding they grow apart but meet again when they are in college and from thereon starts their story of making games and living their lives.

These are the nine books I have read so far. I intend to read at least 24 this year and currently I am reading The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith set in Botswana.

  1. I have heard *so* much about Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow. I think I should finally add it to my TBR – I had been resisting it thus far!


  2. I love whodunits myself and Agatha Christie is still my favourite. Thanks for introducing me to Carol Wyer. I will definitely read her books. Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow also sounds very interesting.

    • Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow is also about mental health and trauma response. After Agatha Christie, I also like Anne Perry’s books. Hers are period mysteries so makes for an interesting read.
