My Year 2016 in Books




Not the most updated list as there are still 3 weeks left in December and I'm aiming to complete 50 books for 2016 :) Total 47 books read and it is a nice way to visualise it.. lots of thrillers as usual and knowing myself, I tend to read all books by one author once I've discovered someone new and I MUST plough through the entire book list by that author!

Mary Burton and Andrea Kane were a nice discovery and Karen Rose and Allison Brennan new releases are my go to fix. The completed list will be posted at end of the year.

2015 is a good year, for I have managed to read again for pleasure on top of my readings and texts.
57 books was easily achieved in the past but looking back at the trends over the past 2 years where I read only 10 and 12 books respectively, I'm giving myself a pat on my back! :)
