This year I’ve got an even split between fiction and non-fiction! While I am always reading both, I definitely read more fiction in general. I guess if it’s non-fiction it’s something I’ve heard about and really want to read, so I am usually not disappointed. Here are some of my favorites I’ve read the past year–and a chunk of bonus books!
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
The Crimson Petal and the White by Michel Faber
One Plus One by Jojo Moyes
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
Thunder & Lightning: Weather Past, Present, Future by Lauren Redniss
Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson
Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own by Kate Bolick
My bonus section is reserved for series that I love and that have taken up a lot of my reading time this year–they are mostly historical fiction/mystery, with a little YA and sci-fi/fantasy thrown in. Any of these books’ “partners” in their respective series are a GO.
