Books of the Year 2016

Ok folks, it's that time of year again! I trolled through my list of books read and turned them into a list of sorts.

I read some absolutely amazing books this year and it was hard to choose just 10! But I did it, we have a winner!

So, first off is my favourite book from a series.

This goes to:

Geek Girl Head Over Heels by Holly Smale

I have followed this series from the start and have loved every minute of it! Harriet is one of the best characters ever!

Ok, here goes; the top 10!

10. In Her Wake by Amanda Jennings - a great twisty turny, dark read.

9. Falling by Jane Green - an emotional, beautiful story of love and loss.

8. Summer Nights at the Moonlight Hotel by Jane Costello - a sweet, funny summery book!

7. The One We Fell In Love With by Paige Toon - surprising, lovely and gripping.

6. Sunshine Over Wildflower Cottage by Milly Johnson - beautiful, captivating and full of hope.

5. My Husband's Wife by Amanda Prowse- funny, sweet, sad and emotional.

4. Take A Chance on Me by Carol Wyer - inspirational, funny and delightful.

3. The Glittering Art of Falling Apart by Ilana Fox - timeless and beautiful. Just brilliant!

2. The Finding of Martha Lost - Caroline Wallace - surprising, fun, unique and spellbinding. Would make and amazing film!

And my Book of the 2016 is:

Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon

This book changed my life and I cannot recommend it enough. A brave story told with humour and heart.

So that's it. Another year over. And a million more books to read in 2017!

Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!

Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not.
