Hi, I'm Chelsey

The first blog post of the new year was all about healthy habits. Within that post, I mentioned that reading more books can help positively reset your life. As we close out the month of January, I wanted to spend today’s post sharing my 2023 reading list. I aim to read one book each month, but I picked up a few extra books that caught my attention, so the list is closer to 15. Of course, this post will be brief compared to my usual blog posts since I haven’t read the bulk of the list yet. Be sure to join the newsletter and follow on LTK if you want to know which book I read each month!

The Fiction Books on My Reading List

Fiction books are not my strong suit, but I am challenging myself to get back into more narrative books this year. I’m not against reading fiction books, but I’ll usually pivot to self-help books and forget to check out more fiction books until something like Gone Girl catches my eye and reels me back in. This year, I decided to pick up a few books I had heard a lot about through word of mouth or books that sounded interesting when I was perusing the book aisle. These are the fiction books on my reading list this year:

  1. Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
  2. It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
  3. The Club by Ellery Lloyd
  4. Verity by Colleen Hoover
  5. Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson
  6. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
  7. Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin
  8. Greenwich Park by Katherine Faulkner

The Non-Fiction Books on My Reading List

Non-fiction books are usually my preference when it comes to reading because I feel like I am actively learning. I love reading about how I can better myself, but the downside is that reading books focused on self-development always gets my mind racing with ideas, so these aren’t books I can end the day with. I haven’t decided if I want to alternate between fiction and non-fiction each month, but when I swap to a non-fiction book, I plan on altering my reading routine to earlier in the day. If you’re curious, these are the non-fiction books on my reading list:

  1. Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb
  2. The High 5 Habit by Mel Robbins
  3. The Gospel of Wellness by Rina Raphael
  4. Find Your People by Jennie Allen
  5. Spare by Prince Harry
  6. Set Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra Glover Tawwab
  7. How Are You, Really? by Jenna Kutcher
  8. Get Out of Your Head by Jennie Allen
  9. Feeding the Soul by Tabitha Brown

As I mentioned at the top of the post, I have more books on my “to read” list than the required 12 to meet my yearly goal. It will be fun to see which ones are cut at the end of the year! Are there any books you’ve read recently that aren’t featured on my list? Let me know and I’ll add it to the backlog!
