Books Read in 2018

2018 was the year in which I rediscovered my love of reading.  Having unaccountably read only 2 books in 2017, and with a growing pile of books coming into my house and waiting to be read, I set myself a target of 12 books to read during the year.  I reached that target on 12th August and carried on.

1.   The Muse - Jessie Burton
2.   The Roundabout Man - Clare Morrall
3.   The Piano Tuner - Daniel Mason
4.   Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
5.   The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer and
                                                                                             Annie Barrows
6.   Perfect - Rachel Joyce

  1. I've listened to - Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and will read soon - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, for the book club. Cathy x

  2. I loved both of those. I thought Eleanor was so sad and I understood her entirely. I bought my copy of TGL&PPPS from Oxfam online and was delighted to find that it had been signed by Annie Barrows so although it's gone to Guernsey now with The Mathematician, it's a long-term loan rather than a gift. x
