Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Didn't Get to in 2023

 

 

 

 




 

Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's theme is Books I Didn't Get to in 2023.  In order to find these books, I looked at previous posts of books that I was looking forward to. I did just have a thought that I should have just looked at this post form last year and see if i read any of those books! Next time!



So here are ten books I meant to read in 2023 but I never got to it!






Daisy and Kate by Meredith Appleyard - I have wanted to read this since I first saw the cover at the reader's retreat I went to last year.



Lady Tan's Circle of Women by Lisa See - I can't believe I haven't read this year. I usually love Lisa See's books.





The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy
- I was given this beautiful hardcover book at a work event, but I haven't actually read it yet.


The Missing Sister by Lucinda Riley - Last year Pa Salt's book was released but I didn't read it as I still haven't read this book.





Inheritance by Nora Roberts
- This is the first book in the The Lost Bride trilogy, and came out in November. I bought the audio straight away but haven't listened to it yet.


Before Your Memory Fades by Toshikazu Kawaguchi - I actually started listening to this over the weekend but when I started writing this post I had not so I am leaving it in!






A Woman's Work by Victoria Purman - I had a proper plan to read this before I went to the Australian Women Weekly exhibition in rural Victoria. However, one of these things happened and the other did not!


Days at the Morisaki Bookshop by Satoshi Yagisawa - I intend to read this in the next couple of weeks.





Codename Charming by Lucy Parker - I was very excited when this book came out. Still haven't read it.

Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati  - I even got to meet this author when I was in the US last year, but still haven't managed to read this book.



Have you read any of these books? Which book would you recommend I prioritise?

  1. You have some wonderful-sounding books on your list. I hope you can read these books in 2024 and that they are all you hoped they would be.

    1. I am sure that I will Lydia. I have liked most of the other books I have read by Lisa See.

  5. I'm afraid that Before Your Memory Fades might be too much the same as book 1. What do you think?

  6. LADY TAN'S CIRCLE OF WOMEN is one I meant to read last year as well. I even bought a copy of the book and yet, there it sits, gathering dust...I hope we both love it when we get to it!

  7. Yeah I agree Lisa See is hard to beat. I still need to read her latest too. And the cover is so alluring. Got it on the TBR for this year!

  12. These all look good. Nora Roberts' book is on my wishlist. It's been years since I read one of hers but this does look good.

    1. I think it's probably 4 or 5 years between Noras for me too but this one is definitely calling my name Yvonne.

  13. I really liked Daisy and Kate, Inheritance is great and when you do listen at least you will be nearer for the next one being published. Hope you get to The Missing Sister and then the final. So good. The only thing I didn't like in The Missing Sister ( I listened on audio) was the crappy NZ accent that they used!

    1. I've listened to the whole series on audio Kathryn. I just don't kknow when I am going to be able to find nearly 25 hours of reading time

  14. These are all new to me, but love the covers and the titles make it seem like they will be fascinating stories. Hope you get a chance to read these.

  15. The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse is so good. Very beautiful and emotional! I want to read the Lisa See book and Inheritance will be my dip back into Nora Roberts.

    1. Sounds like a few of us are using Inheritance to dip back into Nora's books Leslie

  16. I really liked Daisy & Kate. And I am at least 3-4 books behind from Victoria Purman. Including the really huge one haha.

    1. I hope to read this Purman before the next one comes out, which I love the cover for!

  17. Lady Tan's Circle of Women would have made my list if I had made one. I had really hoped to read it this past year. Days at the Morisaki Bookshop, but now I am curious. I will have to check that one out. I hope you are able to get to all of these someday, Marg!

  18. All of these are new to me. Hope you love them all!

  19. Ohh, Lucy Parker! I love her books, but I haven't read that last one, maybe I was looking forward to it and in the end I didn't read it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Same. Must check when the next one will be out!

      Delete
  20. This is a great list! Inheritance was a great read, I loved it as an audiobook, and I meant to read Lady See's Circle as well but didn't get around to it. Hopefully this is our year, right?
