So it’s nearing the end of 2016 and I’ve tried to attempt a book challenge to read 50 books this year. Unfortunately I’m only on book 25 so either I manage to read 25 books in the space of a month and a half or I transfer it onto bucket list 2017. I will definitely try, I do have the Christmas period off to make a bash at it!
2016 has been full of some great books and I wanted to pay homage to a few that have really stood out to me.
The Diabolic(review here)
One of my most recent reads, The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid is one of those books I could visualise on a movie screen. It has a great plot line and explores the story from a Diabolic whose sole purpose is to protect it’s owner but perhaps a Diabolic is more than just a killing machine…
Ctrl, Alt; Delete: How I Grew Up Online(review here)
Emma Gannon is a blogger that’s been in the blogging game for a while and she saw the birth of the Internet and everything that is social media. Ctrl Alt Delete: How I Grew Up Online, is a witty and nostalgic look at how the Internet has grown and it’s so relatable as my generation were part of this journey. Seeing a mention of MSN and Bebo made me reminisce, cringe and understand how fast social media has transitioned. This book was a perfect read for my summer holidays.
Me Before You(review here)
If you are looking for an emotional read then Me Before You by JoJo Moyes is a tear jerker. It’s a tragic story of how happiness can be found in a dire situations, even if it’s only for a short time. Of course, this has also been in the cinema recently and I will be sure to watch it if I manage to get the dvd….for Christmas? *cough* hint to mum.
Rebel of the Sands(review here)
Rebel of the Sands was one of my first reads for 2016 and it’s by a lovely author called Alwyn Hamilton (brilliant last name may I add). One of many mystical/magical themed books I’ve read this year but this one stands out because of the strong female protagonist. There’s a sequel to this book which I hope I can acquire as I’d really like to see what’s in store for Amani.
