#TopReads2018 Three Things About Elsie by @JoannaCannon @boroughpress and Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan @svaughanauthor @simonschusterUK

Top Reads 2017

Top Ten list of best reads this year? I just couldn’t do it! By the end of November I had 20 books on my list of favourites for 2018. So instead of a Top Ten list, over the next few weeks I’m going to share those books which had made an impression on me, made me think, moved me, or stuck in my mind since I read them. They are not ranked in any particular order, just the order I read them in. Although I will be saving two for the very end, two books which were the standout reads for me this year.


Three Things About Elsie: A Richard and Judy Book Club Pick 2018 by [Cannon, Joanna]

My first choice is the wonderful Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon. This is the story of Elsie, an old woman we meet lying on the floor in her nursing home after a fall. As she waits for help, she looks back on her life and we hear about her very special relationship with her friend Elsie. You can read my review here: Three Things About Elsie


Anatomy of a Scandal: The Sunday Times bestseller everyone is talking about by [Vaughan, Sarah]

My next choice is Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan. This could not be a more timely book in the light of #MeToo as it looks at a scandal affecting Westminster through the eyes of two of the women caught up in the courtroom drama. A departure in style for Sarah Vaughan and absolutely gripping throughout. Read my review here: Anatomy of  a Scandal.


Have you read either of these books? What did you think? What would be on your top reads list for 2018? Come back tomorrow to find out my next two choices.

  1. I’ve read and loved both. One made my list. The other one didn’t but only because I read it in December last year and I had to draw the line somewhere or I would have ended up with a top 50. What a year it’s been!
