Books in 2023

Welcome to the Books in 2023 page on Natalie the Explorer blog!

This year, I use the Toronto Public Library Reading Challenge 2023 proposed categories and book suggestions from my blog commenters to read widely and discover new books, authors and genres. I update this page by the end of each month. I keep basic reading statistics and list the books by author’s last name. Asterisk indicates new-to-me authors.
