So many books, so little time. Here are my favourites that I’ve read this year.
I notice that a lot of the Fiction are sequels, or part of a series.
In fairness to all the authors I have put them in alphabetical order. (I am a Librarian after all!)
Jeffrey Archer Cometh the Hour – This is the 6th volume of the Clifton Chronicles.
Alex Brown The Secret of Orchard Cottage – Intriguing family story.
Ann Cleeves The Moth Catcher – The 7th story in the Vera Stanhope series, as good as the first six!
Lindsey Davis The Graveyard of the Hesperides – The 4th mystery in the Flavia Albia series, she is the daughter of Marcus Didius Falco.
Carola Dunn Superfluous Women – The 22nd Daisy Dalrymple mystery, I’ve read all of them!
Emma Hannigan The Perfect Gift – A story of family, of hope and despair.
David Lagercrantz The Girl in the Spider’s Web – The 4th book in the Millennium series, continuing on from Stieg Larsson’s first three.
Freya North The Turning Point – A wonderful family story, I can’t lie, I did cry when reading this.
Wilbur Smith Pharoah – The 6th book in the Egyptian Series featuring Taita, history and myth entwined to produce a very readable story.
Lucie Whitehouse Keep You Close – A very suspenseful novel, read it if you dare.
Jacqueline Winspear A Dangerous Place – The 11th book in the Maisie Dobbs crime/thriller stories. A series well worth reading.
