What have been your favourite reads this year? xoxo


  1. I loved the Sookie Stackhouse series, and I really want to read The Host. Good recommendations!!

  2. I'll have to have a look at my goodreads and do this myself. Although mine are going to have a much stronger chick-lit bias than yours . . . :)

  3. Making History by Stephen Fry - it was a bit of a challenge to read because I needed a dictionary in the other hand but it was a good read for train trips. Some of the history in it was hard to take in but I got my brain round it and finished it.

  4. @ Ray - The Host is brilliant, though a bit difficult to get into at the beginning. Worth persevering with it though! :)

    @ Paula - I could do a top 10 chick lit reads, too! :D

    @ Han - I'll have to read that ... at some point! So many books, not enough time! :0)
