52 books I read in 2023


While going to the gymnasium and focusing on physical health are common around this time of the year, I'd like to speak of an easy tip to resolve to take care of one's mental health: making time for reading in our busy lives. If reading more books in 2024 is one of your goals, here is some inspiration for you! As much as I would have liked to remember every book I read, I cherish the fact that somewhere in between, I lost track of how many and which ones I read — but here are the 52 I managed to recall and put down in a list. Much like how many of us forget the many series we watch on OTTs and struggle to remember! But this 'book forgetfulness' is a gift to myself; I wish more of it!
