10 Books to Read in 2023

Alexandra Ardelean

Hey everyone, I'm Alexandra from and today I want to share with you the 10 most impactful books I read in 2022. Let's get started.

So before we get into the books, I want to talk about my reading habits. I try to read a book a week, but sometimes I'll read longer books that take me two weeks or more. I usually read non-fiction books about history, finance, and philosophy. But this year, I want to read more fiction books. So if you have any recommendations, please leave them in the comments below.

The first book on my list is "The House of Morgan." This is a biography of the Morgan family and how they shaped the modern banking system. It's my favorite read from last year because it's well-written, informative, and not too long.

The second book is about world religions. It's important to understand different cultures and religions to be a well-rounded person.

The third book is "Das Kapital" by Karl Marx. This book is fascinating because it explains the labor theory of value and why capitalism is inherently flawed. Even if you don't agree with Marx's conclusions, it's important to understand his arguments so you can make better political arguments and counterarguments.

The fourth book is "The River of Doubt." This is a biography of Theodore Roosevelt and his exploration of the Amazon River after losing the 1912 election. It's an inspiring story of perseverance and adventure.

The fifth book is a tax book that has saved me thousands of dollars over the years. It covers various tax strategies that are legal and ethical.

The sixth book is "The Almanac of Naval Ravikant." This book compiles the wisdom of Silicon Valley investor Naval Ravikant. It covers topics like wealth, happiness, and decision-making.

The seventh book is "Devil Take the Hindmost." This book discusses financial speculations and historical bubbles to provide insight into market behavior.

The eighth book is "Titan," which is a biography of John D. Rockefeller and the oil industry. I haven't finished it yet, but I expect it to be good based on Chernow's previous work.

The ninth book is "The Bond Book." This book explains how to make money trading bonds and why they're so important in today's market.

And finally, the tenth book is "Misbehaving." This book focuses on behavioral economics and psychology in relation to economics. It's an interesting look at how people make decisions and how those decisions affect markets.

So those are my top 10 books from last year. If you have any recommendations for me this year, please leave them in the comments below. Also, let me know if you'd be interested in joining a book club or community where we can discuss books together on Instagram or YouTube.
