I’ve read quite a few books this year so far, I mean I have just hit the 50 mark and for me that is quite a lot. Last year I managed about 80 books, I am trying to get to at least read that much. So trying to pick 10 of my favourite books that have come out this year was a little hard, but then at the same time it wasn’t.
Anyway here are my Top Ten Favourite books that have come out in 2016…so far. This list will change for sure in the coming months because so many books are coming out and as you can see from the books I am looking forward for the rest of the year – it’s going to be full of books.
