Okay, so I have struggled with deciding out of the 189 books I have read this year which would make my Top 20. I have changed my mind so many times and I extended it to 21 because there was no way I could make it to 20! I know straight away what my number 1 book was, a book that has stayed with me since I read it but how would the other 20 be made up…I had a list of 30 so I had a lot of cutting to do! So in absolutely no particular order, I will highlight my 21 to 11. (Click on the book cover to see my review)
The Anniversary by Hilary Boyd
The Venerate Order by Troy Dukart
We are of Dust by Clare Coombes
Handcuffs, Truncheon and a Polyester Thong by Gina Kirkham
The Cheesemaker’s House by Jane Cable
Bone Deep by Sandra Ireland
The Crying Season by D.K Hood
To be honest the whole series should be in this list, but this is my favourite one of the series!
Bear with me by Jessica Redland
Dead in Venice by Fiona Leitch
And No Birds Shall Sing by E.A Clark
Sweetpea by C.J Skuse
So quick break before we look at my top 10! This has been tough, I mean you see 20 to 11. This has been a fun one to do but man it sucks trying to fit in your top books for the year. Thank god I expanded from 10 to 20!! Apart from the Top 3, the remaining 10 are not in any particular order!
Medium Wave by Rose Zolock
Love Me Only by S.J Pierce and Justice K. Chambers
Do No Harm by L.V Hay
Who Cares if they Die by Wendy Dranfield
The Infirmary by L.J Ross
The Bitter End by Ann Evans and Robert D. Tysall
The Siren and the Specter by Jonathan Janz
At Number 3 we had a book that was quite harrowing and breathtaking at the same time!
Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne
Okay so in at Number 2 is…….
The Day I lost you by Alex Sinclair
The fricking ending of this book still bloody gets me! OMG!!!
And finally my Number one book of the year. Well if you have been following this blog for awhile, I think you may have guessed which one it would be. It is a book I have loved since I have read it, I have sung about since I read it. I recommend it to everyone, and I recommend at least 4 boxes of tissues with it!
The Lion Tamer who Lost by Louise Beech
So no surprise there! This book is just beautiful!
