my favorite books of 2023
The Employees - Olga Ravi
This is cheating a little, but the paperback came out in 2023, so I’m counting it. Surreal and strange. The objects are good.
Dead Silence - SA Barnes
Really cool space horror that nicely dovetailed with playing Dead Space. Spooky and hard to put down.
How High We Go in the Dark - Sequoia Nagamatsu
I loved this meditation on loss and love. It captured a lot of the complex feelings I’ve had over the years about family and belonging.
Just Like Home - Sarah Bailey
Dovetailed nicely with my re-watching of Stoker. This grabbed onto my eyes and wouldn’t let go.
Wrong Way - Joanne McNeil
A clever and fun read about the future of tech and transport.
