šŸŽ§Have You Heard?šŸŽ§Audiobooks For Your Listening PleasurešŸŽ§The Best of 2023šŸŽ§

It will come as no surprise to most of you that my Best of 2023 list has magically grown from 10 to 15. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, right? It just means that I either chose well, or there was a plethora of good books or maybe a bit of both. Remarkably, I had a problem narrowing it down to 15, and I almost threw in the towel and listed all 40 of my reviews. In looking back over my monthly selections, I found books by debut authors, including one by a favorite author debuting under a new name, books by my go-to authors who rarely let me down, several books with “gotcha” endings that made me question my detective skills, and a rare jewel narrated by a famous actress who could read the phone book and receive an Oscar nomination. High points for the year included the final installment of a trilogy, the discovery of new authors and new narrators, an actual book about narrators, and being inspired to devote an entire post to the place various forms of series have in our reading and listening. The past year was definitely a good one for series, and I refer you to April’s post for my take on series as a literary tool. So, without further musings or caveats, I offer you my top 15 for 2023. I did indulge in a subtle form of cheating because the links for the winners will also take you to each of my 2023 posts just in case you want to read the reviews of the books that didn’t make the final cut.
