2023 TBR

Listed below are all the books I would like to read in 2023. Although my plan is to read around 52 books during the year, I have listed 72 books below, just in case I read more than my goal. The books listed below are all on my physical TBR, which I hope I can work my way through, and ideally read more than I buy.

In terms of buying books, I would like to not buy any. However, I’m not going to beat myself up as long as I read more than I buy.
