Book List 2016

  • The Christmas Surprise - Jenny Colgan : quite nice, not as enjoyable as the first 2.  
  • 1st To Die - James Patterson :  audio book.  Had read it before & enjoyed it.  Didn't remember it much so thought I would start over the series again.  
  • Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop - Jenny Colgan : enjoyable read.  
  • The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion : got into it eventually, & enjoyed it.  Got my 33 cents worth anyway!  lol
  • One Good Turn - Kate Atkinson : audio book.  Good again, but complicated to follow.  
  • The Dandelion Years - Erica James : Nice book.  Enjoyed this one a lot.  
  • Case Histories - Kate Atkinson : audio book.  Enjoyed this.  Had to keep up with listening else I would have had to start over again I think.  
  • The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris - Jenny Colgan : loved this & now need to go to Paris & eat chocolate.
  • The Tenderness of Wolves - Stef Penney : Something really different & bought on a whim.  Quite enjoyed it.
  • A Deadly Dealer - Ellery Adams :  audio book, again sewing.  A good series of simple mysteries.  
  • A Fatal Appraisal - Ellery Adams :   audio book, again while sewing.  
  • A Killer Collection - Ellery Adams : audio book.  Another enjoyable mystery while sewing.  
  • Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop of Dreams - Jenny Colgan:  enjoyable chick book that was nice to read after busy hectic days.
  • Mercy Street - Tess Evans : enjoyed this one.  Lovely story.
  • The Reader on The 6.27 0 Jean-Paul Didierlaurent:  This was a really strange book.  Thank goodness it was short.  
  • A Spool Of Blue Thread - Anne Tyler :  disappointed in this one,  I struggled to read it & have never had this with one of her books.  
  • The Husband's Secret - Liane Moriarty :  quite enjoyed this.  
  • Before You Know Kindness - Chris Bohjalian :  audio book.  Not a bad story.
  • A Pinch Of Poison - Claudia Bishop : audio book.  Sewing again.  
  • Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell :  an interesting cheap read I picked up.  
  • The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window & Disappeared - Jonas Jonasson : audio book but thoroughly enjoyed this one.  Really laughed a lot.  Will read it properly one day.  
  • A Dash Of Death - Claudia Bishop :  audio book another simple one to sew too.
  • A Taste For Murder - Claudia Bishop : audio book - mindless fun story to listen too again while sewing.  
  • The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe - Mary Simses:  Enjoyed this one.
  • Rainy Day Kisses - Debbie Macomber :  First one in a while as an audio book.  Enjoyable mindless while sewing.
  • The Light Between Oceans - M.L Stedman  :  Gift from Stuart last Christmas.  Struggled at first but quite enjoyed it in the end.  

Quite an interesting list this year.  Much longer than usual as I have been able to manage quite a lot more with the inclusion of the books I have listened to at home while sewing or knitting.  The library is a great resource for these to borrow directly online.  What a great service.  

Do you have any favourites that you would recommend?  Or what is on your reading list for 2017?
