These are the stats for all the books I read in 2023!
I post stats every month, but these are the ones I’m always most excited to analyze! It’s so cool to look back at the year and see how much you read, the different genres, authors, tropes, spice levels…
These are all the books I read in 2023!
It was an amazing year, full of amazing books and I hope 2024 is even better!
All my books!!
Here are all the books I read!!!
Most of them were amazing!!!
2023 in books
I read a total of 125 books in 2023, 12.893 pages and listened to 601 hours of audiobooks (excluding the books I DNFed).
The month I read the most was October, while also being the month I DNFed the most, so…
What I read
Most of the books I read were romances, but I got a good number of non-fiction books, so I’m proud of that!
I listened to a lot of audiobooks from the library, and a bunch of e-books from KU, cause we can’t abandon our roots!
Challenges and Buddy Reads
This year I launched the #PrideRomanceChallenge, with the goal of reading more queer books, and at least one book per identity!
I managed to read 52 queer books, and read in most identities, while also bringing some friends along for the ride with buddy reads!
The only one I didn’t succeed in reading was an Intersex book, because it was a subject hard to find, but hope to find more in 2024!
I have amazing friends who read amazing books with me, and I hope we’ll read more in 2024!
With the challenge, and also my growing TBR, I read a lot of queer books in 2024.
52 in total, one per week.
My goal for 2024 is to read more BIPOC and disability rep books, but I’m happy about the numbers I hit already!
I had to narrow it down the book crushes, since I read so many swoony characters that would make the perfect book partners!
Hope 2024 brings me more sweet and hot cuties!
MF, MM, MMMFFF?
It’s always fun to see the diversity of partnerings of the books I read.
Even though the majority of books are MF, monogamous and straight (even though a few straight couples had bisexual partners), the number of queer and poly books in my lists is always growing and that makes me really happy!
Looks like I read a lot of spice in 2023!
The majority of my books were 4 out of 5 in Smut Factor, which means, there were very explicit scenes, in a good quantity of scenes.
But most of them were 3 out of 5 in the Spice Level, which means that they were “kinda like missinary, not hot but not cold either”
I gave most of the books I read 4 stars, which means I enjoyed them, but they were not the perfect book!
But a number I’m super proud of is my DNF number!
DNFing 21 books, means I gave up on a book that was not interesting me, and didn’t force myself to finish it. And that is a continuous goal for me, read what makes you happy.
These are a few of my favorites!
Interesting is, some of them were not 5 stars, but they created a lasting impression, becoming important books of 2023!
These were all the 5 stars in 2023!
Most of them, will leave a lasting impression!
Well, that is all for today, I hope you like this post, hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. Feel free to leave your opinion about it in the comments and I will see you next time!
Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
