My Top Ten Reads of 2016 (okay – it’s a baker’s dozen!)

It was always going to be difficult to narrow the more than 140 books I’ve read in 2016 down to a Top Ten. With so many brilliant books read this year, I have failed and chosen 13! These are books which have touched me, made me laugh, made me cry or made an impact so that I am still thinking about the characters and stories.

  1. I knew I shouldn’t look but of course I did 🙂 So now there’s going to be even more books on the TBR list. I have read a few of these but that still leaves plenty more.

  2. I had to come back here to comment. I saw “In Her Wake” in your list and I read it. One word best describes how I feel about this book. WOW! I had no idea what this book was about going into the reading process. I read it quickly in one day since Bella and her amazing back story had me hooked.
