BOOK TALK | Favourites So Far (2016)

Being over half way through 2016, I thought I'd take a look at the books I've read so far this year and share a few of my favourites so far. I've come up with a total of eight books, and interestingly enough over half of them are actually very recent reads. I definitely feel like I'm in a good place with my reading content right now - I hope that continues!

Be sure to share any of your favourite books from the year so far in the comments below.



Happy reading!

  1. The Wight of Silence was on my top ten list when I read it also. Marble Collector..... I want to read but it is not on kindle, I have been waiting forever, maybe I just have to buy it, sigh.

    Mine would be The Word Game by Steena Holmes, that is my only 5 star this year. A few 4 1/2 stars are Eeny Meeny, The Nightingale, Unhinge, The Drowning Game, Edge of Black and Year of Yes.

    1. Even now, weeks later, I still find myself thinking of The Weight of Silence. Hopefully you're able to read The Marble Collector soon... I think its worth the wait, but I am biased with Cecelia Ahern being an auto-buy author of mine.

      I've been umming and ahhing about Year of Yes; thinking about getting as an audiobook. I took a look at the titles you shared that I was unfamiliar with, and of them all, The Word Game by Steena Holmes really stands out to me plot wise - I've added that to my wishlist.

    2. Please read The Word Game, so good and she did such a great job with a delicate topic. I hear Year of Yes is a great audiobook. Enjoy. I actually went to amazon.uk I am going to see if I can get an account there and download books to my Kindle or if I have to wait for it to be amazon.com

    3. I know some people avoid delicate topics because of how they are handled, and the fact that I know this particular book is well written makes me want to read it even more.

      Ooo.. Interesting, I'd never thought of switching like that - hopefully it works!!

  2. I really need to read The Marvels. I bought it at Christmas time and just haven't got around to it yet!

    1. Ah, you should definitely pick it up if you do own it! The story telling method of pictures and narrative may be good for the reading slump feeling you've been having for some time. I hope you enjoy whenever you do get round to reading it :-)

  3. It's looking like The Marvels is going to make the cut for my Make Me Read It Readathon week! I am sure I will love it just like all of Selznick's other books so far :)

    And it sure does make me smile to see Kate Morton on here :) :)

    1. YAY! :-P

      I'm so glad I finally picked up Kate Morton's work. I was close to buying her newest in the bookshop the other day but I knew at the same time I'd want to read the books in order of publication so stopped myself, but I'm sure another of her books will be added to my shelf some time soon.
