Hello, and welcome to my reading tracker page for 2023! I will just be listing the books I’ve read, along with some thoughts of them, maybe.
If you’d like to talk about anything bookish, just comment on this page, and I will enjoy chatting!
2023 goal: read four books a month, one classic a month, and one faith-related book a month!
Current total: 13 books
Currently reading: Joan of Arc by Mark Twain, A Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Thérèse of Lisieux by St. Thèrése of Lisieux
January (4 books)
Animal Farm by George Orwell – I read this book for my English class, and I found it quite interesting.
Little Women by Luisa May Alcott – I read this book when I was younger, and now reading it again at an older age, it seemed much more emotional. I really love this, and it’s one of my favorite classics!
The Woman with the Blue Star by Pam Jenoff – My sister and I listened to this one, and it was pretty good. I liked the characters, and the ending was very bittersweet.
The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson – This book was just so…crazy! I definitely had a lot of emotions while reading it, but I really liked it. The ending is such a cliffhanger, though!
February (5 books)
Love and Luck by Jenna Evans Welch – I liked this book a lot! I liked how it focused a lot on the sibling relationship. It sort of made me want to visit Ireland, too! I did like it, although there were some things I didn’t like, such as how the ending felt sort of rushed. Still, it was cute and quick!
The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson – This book!! I still cannot believe I have finished this series. I think that this was an amazing book for the end of a series. I had so many emotions while reading this book, and there were quite a few twists and turns.
Holy Moments by Matthew Kelly – This is a book that I’d really recommend you’d read. It was one of those books to me that really made me think, and change.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee – I read this book for school, and I liked it quite a bit. I liked the meaning and message of it a lot.
Lovely War by Julie Berry – This was a reread, and it’s one of my favorites! I love the relationships, the characters, the story, and themes…everything!
March (4 books so far)
Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin – I enjoyed reading this book quite a bit. It was very gripping, and I felt as though I couldn’t put it down! It took me a little while to get to, just because it is not something I’d normally read, but I did like it, and I want to get to the following book soon.
Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin – I planned on taking a break between the first book and this sequel, but I just couldn’t! I liked this book a lot, and found it just as interesting, surprising, and amazing as the first one.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – This quick read was very interesting and imaginative. I liked a lot of the overall themes and everything.
Dare to Be More: The Witness of Blessed Carlo Acutis by Colleen and Matt Swaim – I loved this booklet. Although it was short, it really gave me some good insight into Blessed Carlos Acutis’s life. I really recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about this amazing, modern day saint.
