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!

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Character In A Series: DI Natalie Ward written by Carol Wyer

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Best Memoir: I have a tie here between Eat. Drink, Run by Bryony Gordon    AND 
Born In The Bed You Were Made by Brooklyn James

Children's/YA Book: We Are Young by Cat Clarke

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…
