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.

  1. 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 🙂My TTT

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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).
