How was your reading year and what were some of the best books you read?


  1. 100 books is amazing, Alice! I can't believe I haven't read any of these, other than the Harry Potter books of course (just not the illustrated editions). I will definitely be changing that in 2018. I plan to read The Handmaid's Tale this year. It's been on my TBR for ages and I have the audiobook, and it's on my required reading list for class this year so now is the time. I'm also hoping this is the year I start The Diviners series, which has been on my TBR for maybe three years now. As for the Hidden Figures book, I haven't read it yet but I adored the movie. I'm thinking of reading more non-fiction this year, and that seems as good a place as any to start.

    Wonderful post! I hope you have a lovely 2018 <3

    1. Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy the Handmaid's Tale, it's such a great read, as is The Diviners! I've also just watched the Hidden Figures movie and I agree, it's excellent! :D xx Alice
