Top Ten Tuesday is featured by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is : a genre freebie!

When I began this blog, I read almost exclusively romance and some YA. Since 2017, my tastes changed a lot and I now need to switch genres to keep things interesting!

So today I chose to talks about my favorite reading genres (plural) and my favorite books by genres that I have read in 2023 so far.

This feels like preparing my Best of 2023 already ;-)

Be warned that you’ll get more than 10 books!


I read a lot of fantasy and in 2023 I have four big favorites so far!


I began reading crime and mysteries about one year ago. It was my favorite genre as a teenager but then I stopped reading these stories. Now that I have found my way to them I have read some incredible crime/mysteries!

Cozy mysteries

I had never read cozy mysteries in al my life but now that I discovered the genre, I am totally addicted!

Romance and historical fiction

I pair these two as sometimes, my historical fiction is also a romance and I don’t know if I must consider them as historical fiction or romance. And as I am making the rules on this blog, here you are LOL


Under “contemporary” you can have woman fiction or simply fiction written by women in a contemporary world.

Young Adult

Last but not least, I also read young adult stories. I have two ugly cry books and real gems for you here.

When I see all the different genres that I read, it’s no surprise that I don’t get in book slumps. I can never get bored!

Thanks for reading.

  1. Great list you have here. I am glad to see you loved these so much. I did love that Amy Harmon. But personally don’t plan on Fourth Wing. Not my type of fantasy. But most are enjoying it which I am happy for. Hope the rest of the year brings you great reads.
