Last year I shared a post with all the books I’d read in 2015, this year I thought I’d do the same. Whether on Kindle, Audible or on paper, I love to devour a good book. As you can see from my list I read a big mixture of books, both fiction and non fiction.
I’ve also just started reading all the Jane Austen novels and finished Sense and Sensibility last week, I’m currently re-reading Emma. I also re-read lots of Jenny Colgan novels. When I need a little chick lit or light reading, she’s always the one I go for.
My favourite books of the year would have to be Margot at War and First Lady the biographies of Margot Asquith and Clementine Churchill. It was so interesting finding out more about the wives of two very prominent prime ministers both in the first and second world wars.
Earlier in the year I also read lots of books by Cathy Bramley, her books are so lovely and very cheerful and I’m really looking forward to her writing some more. Another reading highlight of the year was Take Six Girls, a new book bout the Mitford sisters, who always really fascinate me.
A fiction highlight this year for me was Love Notes for Freddie, by Eva Rice. I’ve really enjoyed all her books and I love the way you get such a strong representation of the era they were written in.
There’s a slight overlap with last year here, but at the end of last year I started re-reading all the Harry Potter books and then while looking back at my favourite books from my teens I also re-read His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman which I absolutely adore.
