I have thought about this post for a little while now, and have iffed and ahhmmed over several weeks. I have read some of the most amazing books this year that have taken me through a journey of several emotions, to different worlds and times.
Prior to this year I spent 2015/16 reading a lot of Classics. So when I decided to read newly published books it was almost like a child in a sweet shop, a lot of the authors were new to me as was the whole world of Book Blogging, and the wonderfully loyal, crazy, supportive bunch of people who inhabit it’s spot in the universe.
So now to my decisions :
I have read nearly 190 books this year and so this decision has been hard.
My “Top 3” I will be popping on a post tomorrow, but I have a selected some that I have loved reading so much over the year. This first list is of books that are not associated with any blog tours, (they are on another list lol 😉 ) and I thought they were amazing. A mixed bag of fantasy, historical fiction, crime, contemporary, children’s and festive.
