I’ve read more in 2016 than I have in years thanks to taking up the Goodreads reading challenge and joining Rosie’s Book Review Team.
Here are some of the books that have stayed with me long after I finished reading them.
Favourite Children’s book – Fire Bed and Bone by Henrietta Bradford
I loved this book and shared it with my family. It was an interesting experiment to get the different opinions from a 9-year-old and an 11-year-old and my husband (whose age I’m sure he wouldn’t want me to mention!).
Favourite YA book – The Sapphire Legend by E.L. Tenenbaum
This fantasy book took me by surprise and I have been longing to read the sequel. I definitely will in 2017.
Favourite Indie and fantasy – The Crown of Stones by C.L. Schneider
I was drawn to the cover of this book from the start and the book didn’t disappoint. A great fantasy, and another trilogy I hope to finish in 2017.
Favourite Thriller – Distress Signals by Catherin Ryan Howard
This book led to some very late nights! A compelling thriller and I bet you won’t see the twist coming!
Favourite Romance – Late Summer in the Vineyards by Jo Thomas
I loved this book for the atmosphere and the wonderful feel good factor it had.
Favourite Audio book – Look Behind You by Sibel Hodge
This was a thriller I just couldn’t stop listening to. It had that all important mystery element, and like the main character I didn’t know who to trust. It reminded me of ‘Before I go to Sleep’. Both truly great reads.
In all I read 33 books during 2016. Now I can’t wait to see what books 2017 has in store.
Have you read any of these books, and if not have I inspired you to add them to your TBR lists?
