My top 15 books of 2016….

Wow! What a year!!  So many great releases and so many fabulous reads! So it hasn’t made making this list any easier!! Might have been easier to list the books I didn’t enjoy this year!! Now there’s a list that could be fun to share!! 😉

My GoodReads challenge has gone very well this year and I seem to have read (they wouldn’t get it wrong would they?!) 200 books this year!!! Eek!! Maybe I need to get out more lol!!  Have to say that a fair few of these were e-books of the Chick Lit variety that I find a lot quicker to read so that could explain why the total was so high this year!   But with all those books read, is my TBR dwindling??!! NO!!! of course not!! Don’t be silly!! I still refuse to count up how many physical books I have on various shelves as I think it is just easier not to know!  But I have plenty of reading material to see me through 2017, and I may have asked Santa Claus for one or two more! That’s if he thinks I’ve been good enough!

Anyway enough rambling! I have whittled down the 200 to my Top 15 reads of the year of books that have stayed with me in some way or another, but if you’d like to look at all the books I’ve read this year you can if you click here GoodReads 2016 Challenge !  So I will now add a picture of the books I’ve chosen and the GoodReads links to their reviews!!  Also been a great year for gorgeous covers too so high praise to all the cover designers out there too!  Oooh, and these are in no particular order either…….

Phew!! Made it!! If only I could keep going!!  I have loved reading this year as there’ve been so many top quality books in all different genres, and that’s why I’ve mixed my list up a little to include a little bit of everything!  Just a shame I couldn’t include more on my list!  Have you read any of these books? Would love to know if you have enjoyed as many books as I have this year!

Let’s hope 2017 is just as rewarding on the reading front!!

Happy Reading!!!
