December Rewind

I’ve really enjoyed rewinding through my reading over the past five years. Here’s the last instalment (acknowledging that there’s a chance I’ll have to change the 2017 choice, depending on what I read in the next seven days) –

2012: Foal’s Bread by Gillian Mears – contains one of the most memorable scenes I’ve ever read.

2013: What Nora Knew by Linda Yellin – chick-lit at its best.

2014: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr – exquisite.

2015: Avenue of Mysteries by John Irving – packed with Irving hallmarks.

2016: The Gravity of Love by Sara Stridsberg – unsettling (but beautifully written).

2017: So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson – terrifying in its own way.

  1. You’ve made me realise All the Light We Cannot See has been in my TBR since 2014 – oh dear. Hopefully I’ll get to it through the constraints of my 2018 book buying ban…

    Wishing you & your family a lovely Christmas Kate!

    • It’s the perfect book for the Christmas holidays as the chapters are very, very short, so you can read/eat/doze without losing track of the story 😉

      Merry Christmas!

    • I have a few in mind for my favourites for the whole year but there are still a few reading days left 🙂 (And I intend to make the most of them!). Hope you have a happy Christmas.

  2. I plan to try some John Irving in 2018 – I requested A Prayer for Owen Meany already! And I’ve heard such great things of All The Light We Cannot See … I have a copy and look forward to reading it. I love looking back on my reading!
