I am delighted so say that I read 15 AWW books this year which made up over a quarter of the books I read.
All the books can be seen above but if you want a list then please click here.
I had a great time reading all the books this year so it is hard to pick a favourite one or favourite author. However, two things have surprised me:
Short Story Collections
Much to my surprise I have read three short story collections this year. It’s not a genre I dabble in too much but all three collections are so fantastic they have changed my opinion about the genre: it can be addictive reading!
Close to Home by Robin Barker (also the most popular review on my blog this year by far!)
I also have a copy of Ceridwen Dovey’s Only the Animals which I hope to get to soon.
I read and reviewed Helen Garner’s Monkey Grip quite late in December and have been amazed at the number of views. I suspect everyone loves a (contemporary) classic!
I still have a substantial pile of AWW books from my 6 week sojourn in Australia so I am really looking forward to 2016!
