I was pretty lucky last year to find some new authors who really hit the sweet spot for me. These authors are candidates for my auto-buy list. I’ll be checking out more of their books this year, and if I continue to have some good results they’ll be on the list for sure.
Have you read any of these authors? If so, please tell me which of their books I have to read next.
Like quite a lot of readers, I am an unashamed fan of fiction. I lose myself for hours in my latest reads, discovering new worlds and becoming acquainted with new characters. Or, at least I would, if my phone didn’t keep distracting me.
While I love fiction, there’s also a lot of love in my heart for non-fiction. There’s something special about reading people’s lives and stories that makes the book so lovely to read. There’s so many wonderful non-fiction books I’ve read that I love sharing with people.
When the new year comes around, it’s time for me to look back over the reading year that just passed. I had, admittedly, a really good year when it came to reading. With 106 books under my belt, it’s only natural there were some unforgettable books weaved in. The good kind, of course.
I’ve been reading for pretty much my entire life. My earliest memory of reading is sitting in the golf club my Dad is a member of, and reading a book named “Can You Moo Like A Cow?” (spoiler: yes I could.) My love of reading completely ignited from there, and it really took off.
I spent most of my childhood with my nose firmly wedged into a book. I got into so much trouble with my parents for staying up to read long past bedtime. I even tried to get away with the infamous “torch under the duvet cover”, but nothing could keep me from my love of reading.
There are a few books I’ve loved all the way through my life, and some that are so special to me as they’re books I have a strong connection with from my childhood. All the books featuring here are ones I read before I turned 12.
