End-of-the-year reading has always been a little scattered for me, and 2023 was no exception. My reading mood was all over the place: historical fiction, contemporary mystery, and lots of holiday reads. Find out which books I recommend you borrow vs buy in my December 2023 reading wrap-up!

The Fairytale Life of Dorothy Gale
This Wizard of Oz retelling was ok, mostly it made me want to travel to Ireland again.
Midnight at the Christmas Bookshop
A decent sequel that left me a little underwhelmed but still eager to go to Scotland!
The Gentleman's Gambit
I probably should have read this series in order. Maybe I would have enjoyed this more.
The Christmas Dress
This contemporary holiday romance is a great blend of modern and historic. Fiona Davis readers will love it!
The Christmas Bookshop
This book was charming, funny, and highly bingeable. I feel hard for these characters and the setting.
