Book Club: 2023 Reads

Book Club: 2023 Reads

One of the most wonderful things that I have done this year has been to facilitate a book club in a local café. Not only have I met some lovely people but it has created a fantastic space to talk about books (our group reads and others).

Here, I've created a list here of the books that I have read this year. If you are stuck for ideas about what to read next, you might find something in this list. There isn't any description - it is just a starting point in terms of titles and authors (fiction and non-fiction). I have enjoyed something about all of these books.

Hopefully, a blog comments section will appear in the New Year but, in the meantime, let me know if you read any of the books (and what you think) by emailing I'd love to know!
