Review of Books Read in 2018

76 books read - yay, two up on last year, but not quite the 100 I was aiming for :-) But I did read 2 novels in German, want to increase this number in 2019 ( Schrottreif: Isabel Morf & Satzfetzen: Isobel Morf)

It was a difficult year for me personally and professionally and I did a lot of comfort reading / re-reading of old favourites, but also a lot of non-fiction reading about how to survive / thrive / be healthier. A good reading year!

Best Book (Fiction): Tracy Chevalier: Remarkable Creatures

Best Book (Non-Fiction): The Checklist: Atul Gawande & Slow Train to Switzerland: Diccon Bewes

Best Chicklit: Marian Keyes: The Break

Book which made me change/gave me most food for thought: Clare Pooley: The Sober Diaries & Why we Sleep: Matthew Walker

Best Old Favourite: Circle of Friends : Maeve Binchy

Author Discovery: The Other Side of the Wall : Andrea Mara

Worst Read: Mount: Jilly Cooper
