We asked the RoundAbout team to go through their Goodreads from this year and select what their favourite book was that they read in 2023 and why YOU need to add it to your Goodreads list next year! So get your phone out and write these down as we’ve selected your next 5 reads!


Sian – Yellowface by Rebcca F. Kuang

Just when you think it couldn’t get any crazier… it does!

Yellowface came out earlier this year, and if you haven’t had the chance to read it yet, I highly recommend it.

It’s a book that tackles racism, cultural appropriation, and social media anxiety while also being witty, inviting, and easy to read.

I was captivated by the third page, then couldn’t put the book down, following the main character’s inner thoughts as she continuously lied and justified her actions to construct her own narrative.

In one sentence, you’re tearing up, and by the next, your jaw is on the floor!



Lewis – Endgame by Omid Scoobie

The book, written by a longtime Royal Correspondent, looks at the life of the Royal Family following the passing of the Queen as told by sources close to the family.

It’s really interesting getting an insight into what goes on behind closed doors and exploring the future survival, or not, of the institution.



Sammy – Verity by Colleen Hoover

2023 was the year of Colleen Hoover, and out of all the books I read by her this year, this one was by far my favourite.

It’s a romantic thriller that kept me reading into the early hours of the morning, with a very clever twist.

I’ve recommended it to all my fellow bookworms.



Jake – The Humans by Matt Haig

From the same writer as the Midnight Library, The Humans is a beautiful albeit extremely strange story about an alien that takes over the life of a University professor.

I’ve not read a book with a more positive message on life that confronts the harsh realities of dying relationships, depression, feeling lost in life and not liking the way your nose looks.

If you’re looking for a story that’s very life affirming and want to laugh, cry and enjoy a great romance? Then The Humans is a must.



Keeley – Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu

Carmilla is a vampire novel that predates Bram Stroker’s Dracula. 

It is a story about a young woman that has a dream about a beautiful woman and then 12 years later, meets the very same woman from her dream, then mysterious and frightening events begin to unfold.

It is the first or one of the first examples of a lesbian vampire that expresses romantic desires towards the protagonist.
