Best of 2016

Shona's best bits

As 2016 draws to a close I decided it would be nice to revisit some of my favourite books from this year. Some were written by firm favourites, but there are a few new to me authors, and even a few debut authors in the mix. Take a look at my best of 2016 and see if you find yourself a new read.. Clicking the books title will take you to its Goodreads page, clicking 'my review' will take you to my previously published review for that book.

  2. I didn't like Me Before You as much as everyone else seams to have liked it! :/ The rest, I haven't read except for the Divergent Series, but I'm excited for Holing Up the Universe! Happy New Year, Shona!
