My Year of Reading (2016)

I suppose it's quite late to put this up now, since we're now into February, but as I've done it for previous years... here are all of the books that I read in 2016! I read 35 books last year (not including a handful of books that I didn't finish) which is low compared to the previous couple of years in which I averaged at about 50 but is still higher than the national average I believe. My favourite books from last year are here and I'm hoping that I can get back into book reviewing again over the next couple of weeks :)

Wow, well done! I think I read 9 books this year. I wish I read more! Faster would probably be helpful too. ;)
