Blogmas Day 21- Every Book I Read In 2016

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.

The Viceroys Daughters Book ReviewThis year I’ve found a huge interest in female history and have read a lot of books about women in the early 20th century. I always really enjoy anything about society in the 1920s especially.

Margot at War ReviewMy 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.

Another reading highlight of the year was Take Six Girls, a new book bout the Mitford sisters, who always really fascinate me.

Love Notes For Freddie by Eva Rice ReviewA 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.

Young Elizabeth Book ReviewI read so many books this year, that it will hard to read as many next year, but I’m definitely going to try. So you have any good book recommendations that you think I’d like?
