10 Mini Book Reviews (2023 #1)

πŸ“š Rounding up my first 10 Mini Book Reviews (and 5 Full Reviews!) for fiction in 2023! I had quite a bad run of disappointments, but also a couple of nice surprises.

I don’t write up full, in depth book reviews for most of what I read, but I have been posting up little mini-book reviews on Instagram for everything I have read this year, and of course on Goodreads too. I have found that I really like to make review graphics in Canva to share to Instagram. Fiddling around with those I find helps to get me thinking about what I enjoyed about a book, and what didn’t work so well for me.

Not everybody uses Instagram – and Instagram also might not last forever – so I have decided to cross-post to the blog too.

Originally post contained each of those reviews but I’ve send made each mini-review its own blog post, so now we’re just linking to all 15 books I have reviewed so far this year!

So, these are the first 15 Fiction books I have read in 2023, click to view my thoughts about each!

Are we book friends?

Have you read any of these? Please do share below! I did make my way through a number of titles that I’ve heard hyped up over the last couple of years – ones with high Goodreads ratings – that just did nothing for me! Have you ever picked up a book you were sure you’d like and found it crushing disappointment?
