Top Ten 2016
List, Top Ten

Top Ten 2016

Once again, I feel vindicated in waiting until the last day of the year to announce my favourite books because I have read two corkers this week! In no particular order, my top ten books read in 2016…

A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers
The Fireman by Joe Hill

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall

13 Minutes by Sarah Pinborough
HEX by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

The Thing Itself by Adam Roberts
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders

Caraval by Stephanie Garber
The Last Act of Love by Cathy Rentzenbrink

These last two I haven’t reviewed yet, but keep an eye on the blog over the next few days. You can also check out #bookishadvent on Instagram for more top recommendations from me, Bex and Louise.

Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! A Closed & Common orbit was one of my top reads of the year too. Such a great book, haven't read any of the others you've listed though.

    I bought A Closed and Common Orbit with the Amazon vouchers I got for Christmas, and I think I'm going to read it next. I really loved the first book, so I'm relieved that the second is brilliant too!

    I've heard great things about Caraval too.
