Best Books of 2023

I have read some pretty amazing books this year and I want to share some of my favourites with you guys. 

By the way, these are the books I read in 2023, they’re not released in 2023. Also, I am not married to any particular genre. I don’t think Reading fictional books is a waste of time nor do I think that Reading non-fictional books is a superior activity.

So, This Blog will be divided into two parts. One part will be about non-fictional/Self-help books and the second part will be about fictional books.

Why do I read so many Books?

Why do I read so many Books?

Greetings my fellow scholars, A few words before the rest of the words. You must be wondering what kind of a person reads this many books. I have been trying to figure out the reasons behind my obsessions of books too and I have come up with the following answers.

1)Reading books makes me understand myself and the world around me. Consequently, I don’t feel vulnerable as much as I used to. 

2)I have a genuine love for literature.

3)I am also in my head all the time and reading books gives me a lot of productive things to think about.

4)And of course, the last one is because I love stories.

101 Essays that will change the way you think

101 Essays that will change the way you think

1)Every year we have moments of revelation where we realise certain things about life and the universe and Suddenly, we start to look at life differently.

The first book I wanna recommend is filled with essays that may take you to those moments of revelation. The book name is 101 Essays That Will Change the Way You Think” By Brianna Wiest. She changed the way I think about her as the author.

Some of the stuff was repetitive and the book could have been shortened but I stand by the book.

A book on creativity

A book on creativity

The second book I want to recommend is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. Big Magic is like this religious book about creativity. The author calls ideas the disembodied spirit of genius and she believes that creativity is magic and not in some metaphorical sense but in a literal sense like Harry Potter. It is less of a practical book but a more philosophical one. I highly recommend it to all the artists and creative people.

Books on Poetry

The next three books are my favourite poetry books and I am sad about the fact that the target audience of poetry is shrinking day by day to almost nothing. But I hope that you guys love poetry books because I have some really good recommendations.

The first one is “Strength in Our Scars” by Bianca Sparacino and The second one “Gentle Reminder” is also by the same author. Both are good if you’re trying to heal yourself from heartbreak or if you have lost someone recently. These two will fill you with feelings of warmth, hope and positivity.

Poetry Pharmacy

Poetry Pharmacy

Another great poetry book is Poetry Pharmacy by William Seighart. I loved this book so much that I decided to keep a hard copy of it in my library. I leap onto this book whenever I am going through a hard time. It always recommends perfect poetry according to the situation you’re going through or the emotions you’re feeling.

Poetry is the kind of art form that makes sense for you either when you’re going through something tragic or something ecstatic. It’s not for people of moderation.

5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

5th favourite nonfiction book that I read this year is 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman introduces five different love languages that individuals use to express and receive love. 

Quality time

Physical touch

Acts of service

Receiving gifts

Words of affirmation

Just by knowing your love language and your partner’s you can save or even improve the emotional intimacy of the relationship. So many people lost the love of their lives because they didn’t learn how to speak the primary love language of their partner. Highly recommended to all couples.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

The first one is “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd” by Agatha Christie. This is considered one of the magnum opus of Agatha Christie. This is featured in 1001 books you must read before you die. It’s classic And I bet you that you will not be able to guess the right killer no matter how skilled of a literary detective you think you are. But again you can try, My guess was way off.

ABC Murders

ABC Murders

The second book that I enjoyed by Agatha Christie is “ABC Murders”. You are gonna enjoy this one because it’s a murder mystery about a serial killer. I think I finished this one much faster than Roger Ackroyd.

A book for cat lovers

A book for cat lovers

My next recommendation is Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa and it is perfect for cat lovers. It’s a poignant story about a boy who rescues this cat and they both go on a road trip together. If you are a cat person you will cry while reading this, I can promise you that.

Audible Originals

Audible Originals

I have two audiobook recommendations for people who love audiobooks

This year I have also found the cutest romance audiobook series That I listen to whenever I need to hear something cosy and fun. The name is Love Lines by Cara Bastone and There are three parts to this series and every part is a story of a different couple, I love only 1st part “Call Me Maybe” and 3rd part “Seatmate”. 2nd Audiobook “Sweet Talk” was not my favourite. 

There is another romance audiobook by the same author that I love named “Love at First Psych”. All three are full of banter and deep meaningful conversation.

Cosy Christmas Murder Story

Cosy Christmas Murder Story

By now, you must have figured that I am addicted to reading murder mystery books. Hence, My next audiobook recommendation is for the people who love Christmas as much as a murder mystery. And the name of the audiobook is Mistletoe Murders narrated by Cobie Smulders. Her narration is morbidly perfect for murder mysteries.

PS: This audiobook is an audible original so you gotta have an audible subscription to listen to this audiobook series.

Plot: It’s a story about a woman who runs this cute Christmas-themed store by the day and solves murder mysteries by the night discreetly.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
