Top Ten Tuesday - Books I've Read So Far This Year

Top Ten Book I've Read So Far This Year

This meme was a lovely excuse to go through my archives for the year.
These 10 books stood out head and shoulders above the rest.
I was delighted to see four Australian books in the mix as well as three children's books.
I think it's a nice mix of historical fiction, contemporary fiction and award winners.

I hope this list inspires you to try one of these books - they're absolutely wonderful!
Happy Reading.

    thanks, I want to try the Luminaries

  2. I think I need to read Whiskey, Charlie, Foxtrot but you liked Luminaries, so I can't trust your opinion. LOL, good list...mostly :P

    1. Ba ha! I think the Luminaries is a book that you have to be in the right mood for - it does seem to be a love it or hate it kind of book though. I was actually surprised that everyone on the ABC Book Club enjoyed it a couple of months ago - I was sure there would have been a divided debate.

    The Luminaries! I don't think I'll be getting around to that book any time soon (it's sitting in my eReader), but glad to read that you enjoyed it :)

  4. Oh, The Blue Castle! I think I'm a bit far behind with contemporary reading though when that's the only one on the list that I have read. Oh well! ;-)

    Great list! And some new reads for me here too. Whiskey, Charlie, Foxtrot looks really interesting.

  6. Lovely list Brona, looks like you're already having a great year. Sad to say that the only one of these I've read too is Owl Babies, and I agree, I totally loved it too. I saw Kristina Olsson speak at SWF, and now really want to read Boy, Lost. Ophelia and the Marvellous Boy is very high on my radar- I really want to read that soon. And I just adore the title of The Apple Tart of Hope. I remember how much you loved The Railwayman's Wife- I'd love to have time to get to it too.

  7. The Apple Tart of Hope - what a cute name for book! Also I wasn't even aware there was a pop-up book of owl babies and now I really want it in my possession. Great list!

  8. Good list. I have just started the Luminaries and can't put it down. It is fantastic! The Railway Man's Wife seems to be a must as well.

  9. I can't wait to read The Invention of Wings!

  10. I bought Luminaries a while back, but haven't gotten around to it yet. The Invention of Wings is one I've been thinking of buying. Now that summer has finally arrived, I'll be reading like a fiend!

  11. Oh, I can't believe The Luminaries is still waiting on my shelf! I really need to try it soon. Great list!

  12. Lovely list! I've also read The Blue Castle and The Luminaries this year :-D: enjoyed the former, wasn't very enthusiastic about the latter (I didn't hate it either, though).

  13. I love he blue Castle too and I've been so curious about luminaries

  14. Ophelia & The Marvelous Boy is one I want to read. Glad you loved it! My TTT
