As any of you who have followed my blog for a while know, there was a long gap in my blogging (and reading) life over the past year or so. Which means that not only did you miss me (I assume), but I missed out on everything that was going on in the bookish world. The only plus to this is that I now have a year’s worth of books pre-vetted by other bloggers and BookTubers to catch up on. Here are the ten (plus two more because I have trouble with important decisions) that I’ve found most exciting!
The Underground Railroad – Colson Whitehead
The Tidal Zone – Sarah Moss
Another Day In the Death of America – Gary Younge
All We Shall Know – Donal Ryan
Commonwealth – Ann Patchett
The Essex Serpent – Sarah Perry
The Unseen World – Liz Moore
Shelter – Jung Yun
This was a surprisingly difficult list to compile – there are so many other books I wanted to include and others I know I’ve forgotten and will be kicking myself later for not including! But there are also a lot I haven’t yet discovered – and this is where you come in.
What were your favourite books that came out last year? Which of these have you read and what did you think of them? Any you’d particularly recommend?
