Today I thought I’d do a round up of my favourite books of 2016. As you guys know I read A LOT. Reading is life. I’ve read a lot of books last year, some great, some that I really couldn’t get into. I’ve also discovered some amazing new authors. These are in no particular order, I don’t think I could pick a favourite book if my life depended on it! I have reviewed all of these, so just click on the title to read a more in depth review.
- The Girl On The Train By Paula Hawkins: Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll have seen the hype surrounding this book, and it really does live up to it. I really enjoyed reading this, it was so addictive!
- The Accident By C.L Taylor: I’ve enjoyed a lot of Cally Taylors books this year, but this one stood out to me the most. I love the writing style, and the use of flashbacks and how they tell the story. If you enjoy psychological thriller’s Cally Taylor is definitely an author to look into.
- What She Never Told Me By Kate Mcquaile: This is one of those books where you think you’re getting a resolution, then another plot twist hits you. It kept me up late, and I couldn’t put the book down. A great one if you like mysteries!
- Downfall by Stephen Edgar: I struggled to pick a favourite book because I really enjoyed all of the books in Stephen’s written. What I love about his books is how the stories all cross over each other and you get to really know the character. If you’re looking for a good series to get into I’d recommend checking these out on the kindle store. Also check out the link for an interview with Stephen
- How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst: One for fans of thrillers and mystery. This book was brilliant, it follows the story of how a mother was imprisoned for killing her son, but then finds out he might not be dead after all. It was gripping!
- No Kiss Goodbye by Jenelle Harris: Another mystery/ thriller book (anybody sensing a theme here) Although this story got a little confusing at times, the writing was brilliant and I loved all the twists and turns. It makes you question everything, and it’s one of those books you have to go back and read again just see if you can find any clues.
So these are my favourite books of the year. I wanted to keep it to a top 5 but it was impossible. I’ve read so many books this year and I really enjoyed the majority of them, so picking 6 was really difficult. What are your favourite books of 2016? What will you be reading in 2017?
