Good grief, I've got to give my year 3 stars, even though I read 124 (counted) books. There were a few that didn't make bookaxe for some reason or another. Only a few books stood out this year:
Little Fires Everywhere
Strange the Dreamer
The Gone World
Where'd You Go, Bernadette?
The Time Traveler's Wife
The Demon King
And that's it. Not a lot of hits on this parade. Hopefully, next year will yield better results.
See you on the flipside!
My favourite reads for the year (in no order) have been:
Putney / Sofka Zinovieff
The Doll's Alphabet / Camilla Grudova
Monsieur / Jean-Philippe Toussaint
The Truth about Marie / Jean-Philippe Toussaint
The Vorrh trology / Brian Catling
Flights / Olga Tokarczuk
Thérèse and Isabelle / Violette Leduc
Sometimes A River Song / Avril Joy
Madame Verona Comes Down The Hill / Dimitri Verhulst
Such Small Hands / Andrés Barba
The only awful book I read this year was Crudo by Olivia Laing.
A good reading year for me :-)
Happy new year everyone!
Happy New Year, folks! Here's to a brilliant year of reading all round.
