I don’t read lots of books because I am a ridiculously slow reader, but I have read some really good books this year. So I thought I would share them with you on this rainy, stormy Christmas Eve eve!
Three of my favorite novels have been ‘All the Light We Cannot See’ by Anthony Doerr, ‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir (I still haven’t seen the film, but then I do know how it ends!) and ‘The Heart Goes Last’ by Margaret Atwood (I whizzed through this one in three weeks – see, that is me reading fast!!).
Three of the best non fiction books for me this year were ‘Big Magic’ by Elizabeth Gilbert, ‘Everyday Superfood’ by Jamie Oliver and out of a ton of art books this one is a beauty, ‘Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces’ by Jane Davenport.
We do tend to read lots of kids books because I still read to my youngest every night. Favorite children’s books have been ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ by C.S. Lewis, the ‘Harry Potter’ books by J.K. Rowling and ‘The Iremonger Trilogy’ by Edward Carey.
I am currently reading ‘City on Fire’ by Garth Risk Hallberg and we are on book five of the Harry Potter books – ‘The Order of the Phoenix’.
What are your books of the year? Any recommendations? I am always looking for good books!
Happy Wednesday/Christmas Eve eve.
