The best books of 2023

Kira Carney - I was able to disconnect from the author and make her work my own, or at least in my perspective. Milk and Honey reminded me of a lot of internal battles that I want to write about.
Kali Thompson - i love the quotes inside of this book, it really helps you look at the things you've gone through.
Adisyn Smith - super good read. strongly recommend to anyone having a hard time

Anja Castillo - I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who is stuck in a rut or needing to dramatically shift their perspective. I am basically an evangelist of this book and have bought and given it away over 20 times in hardcopy and just as many times in digital version. If someone wants this and can't ...
Test Out - Great author and love reading his books. Great for people who love to read books that focuses on being better.
Rafael Hernandez - A wonderful book that helps you reframe your relationship with yourself and the world. It's enlightening, empowering and insightful. While I think it's a deep book conceptually, I think it's also very digestible.

Molly Pearcy - My fourth grader loves this series. Immersive and thrilling your kiddo won't be able to put it down! Recommended for eight and above.
Bethany Kessler - Amazing book series that has dragons as the main protagonists and as the intelligent species, and almost no mention of humanity.

Dakota Stern - Although it was written more than 70 years ago, George Orwell's 1984 provides a fantastically sobering prophecy about the future of the world - of its governments and people.
Z M - Really appreciate this Orwellian read. It's perhaps more relevant in today's society than ever before. Highly recommend.
Rafael Hernandez - I read this in high school and later watched the movie. It's a cautionary tale of what could happen if we don't exercise our democratic rights and hold those in power accountable.
Paula Claure - I got this book from my Book of the Month subscription and I couldn't stop reading it...It just gets you. The author has dark humor, It's hard with himself, talks about a lot of stages in his life, the loss of his sister, and a lot of family issues. It's a great book.

Paula Claure - The way the KC Davis explains her approach to cleaning and how we put social pressures on ourselves it's the kindest way I had read. I got this book waiting for a solution for my messiness, but I got so much more than that. I learn how to be kind to myself and find ways to be practical, at the sa...

Molly Pearcy - If you have a kid that loves history then Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales is a great series to introduce them to. These graphic novels cover topics such as the Civil War, the Louisiana Purchase, World War I, World War II and the Donner Party. Hale's does not skip the brutality of these events but d...
Alden William - So awesome! It'll teach kids history while also giving then something to laugh about!

Morgan Keith - The “Bible” of Vet Med drugs. It has a very extensive list of uses, actions, contraindications, etc. for almost every drug you can think of. Very handy.
Kelsy Horn - Very useful.
Carol Mullins - Pair an orange blossom with Lilly for a wedding, or forget-me-not and cypress for funeral. This book has taught me so much about the meaning of flowers, a secret language during Victorian times. My daughter got this for my birthday and knows how much I love botany, horticulture and flowers. The c...
Liloo Manhoff - It is fascinating how many flower decorations you can make! This book explains the signification behind colors, associations, month, smell, and all the history you need to know about the art of flower! The vocabulary is simple, and time will fly as never before!
Bethany Kessler - A great read for almost anyone! The cat's not only have their own societies and laws/rules, but also their own religion. Memorable characters and so many deaths and losses, you almost question whether it was meant to be a children's book.

Paula Claure - This book is.... so much. I will just leave a quote
"Language shows us that naming an experience doesn't give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding and meaning".

Rafael Hernandez - I started 2022 reading this book and from the first few chapters, I was able to implement habit-forming practices. One of my favorite concepts is this idea of habit stacking where you take an existing habit you already perform and tack on a new habit so they're performed together. For me, it's af...

Clau C - I choose this book because I heard a lot about the author, and I'm so glad I did! I just couldn't put it down! A novel that will transport you to another time, it made me reflect about my own ancestors and their struggles so I could be who I am today. Beautiful and heartfelt, a must read!
Dakota Stern - Two half-sisters, Effia and Esi, are born into different villages in eighteenth-century Ghana. Effia is married off to an Englishman and lives in comfort in the palatial rooms of Cape Coast Castle. Unbeknownst to Effia, her sister, Esi, is imprisoned beneath her in the castle's dungeons, sold wit...
