Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
I've decided to do a Top 5 rather than a Top 10 as I've only read 24 books this year so far - on track for my Goodreads goal of 50 this year but it's not really an outstanding total. These books aren't in any particular order as I couldn't bring myself to decide on one
Still Alice is one of the books I read at the beginning of the year and I absolutely adored it! It is about Alice who has early onset dementia and how her and her family live with that knowledge.
And the Mountains Echoed is another book I read at the start of this year. This was a book club read (though we never actually got round to discussing it and since then book club has ceased to exist!) and I'm really glad that I picked it up. It's heartbreakingly beautiful and I'd recommend it to everyone!
The Well of Ascension is the second in Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy. This is fantasy at it's best! I was engaged in the plot from start to finish and can't wait to read the final book in the trilogy - once I get round to purchasing it!
The Forgotten Garden is a book I read just last month and was a bit of an impulse buy. I loved it. Kate Morton is a masterfully storyteller and the mystery in this book kept me hooked. This book made me fall in love with books and reading all over again. I've since gone on to purchase all of her released novels.
The Chosen Queen is a book I read at the start of this month after winning a copy that the author was running a giveaway for. It's the first in a new historical trilogy about the women behind the battle of 1066. This book focuses on Edyth, the only woman who was ever Queen of England and Queen of Wales. I loved how Joanna Courtney tells Edyth's story and really look forward to the second in the trilogy that comes out later this year. If you like Phillipa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick you'll love this book too!
