A Year in Reading – 2016

My top 5 books for 2016:

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Nobody is not an ordinary boy: he lives in a graveyard, with his ghosts parents and a mentor. He’s also threatened by an assassin without knowing the reason. Cool story, full of great quotes about life and death.

 

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

The story follows Kell, a young magician, who has the faculty to travel through different worlds. One day, he smuggles something he shouldn’t have… It has magic, bad-ass characters and parallel London.

 

Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen

Great and funny picture book with daily scenes every book lover can relate to.

 

Je me suis tue by Mathieu Menegaux

Very good debut novel by the French novelist Mathieu Menegaux. It depicted the struggle of a woman after a rape, and tells the reader why she had been put in jail.

 

Daily Rituals by Mason Currey

Non-fiction book relating all the personal organisation and rituals that creatives use to get their things done. It has some wonderful advice in it, very helpful.
