Favorite Books of 2023

I read 15 books in 2023, which is the lowest number since I started keeping track in 2010. A few factors contributed to this, including having a second baby in May and opting more often to watch movies in my free time.

So it goes. I’ll get back on the reading train in 2024. Until then, here are the books I did manage to read and enjoy last year.

  • Blankets by Craig Thompson
  • The Art and Science of Arrival by Tanya Lapointe
  • Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies by Matt Singer

  • The Wager: A Tale of Shipwreck, Mutiny and Murder by David Grann
  • The President Is A Sick Man by Matthew Algeo
