2016 Book Challenge!

I am a huge book lover! Reading is definitely my favorite hobby and I can easily spend a whole weekend stuck in a book rather than leaving the house. At the beginning of 2016 I set myself a challenge to see if I could read 100 books this year, I realized last month that I may not meet this goal, so I am just going to try and read as many I can by the end of the year.

So far I have read 13 books and thought I would share with you my top 3 so far!

1. Me before you -  Jojo Moyes
This is one of those books that is weird to say you love because it is a major tear jerker! I spent a whole evening reading this with a box of tissues. But it is such an amazing, beautiful story! The story is about Lou Clarke a normal small town girl who ends up working with Will Traynor who is a Quadriplegic. The film of this book is being released this year, so if you you are like me and like to read the book before the film, get reading this asap!

2. A girls best friend - Lindsey Kelk
I read this at the beginning of January when I was missing New York and it made me want to go straight back, I have read all of Lindsey Kelks ' I heart Series' and loved them (definitely recommend them if you love a good chick flick) and this was just as good. It's about a girl who spends christmas with her best friend in New York. It was an easy, cheery read and I would read it again.

3. The 100 year old man who climbed out of his window and disappeared - Jonas Jonasson
This isn't the kind of book I normally read but I really enjoyed it. As you can probably gather from the title it is about a 100 year old man who escapes out of a window, the story tells of his life so far and the weird and wonderful things that have happened to him. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.


Other books I have read so far this year:
I'll take New York - Miranda Dickinson
Rumour has it - Jill Mansell
Where there hearts collide - Zoe York
The Wedding Gift - Lucy Kevin
Seaside Dreams - Melissa Foster
Seaside Hearts - Melissa Foster
Marrying Mister Perfect - Lizzie Shane
The Shop on Main - Kay Correll
Montana Cowgirl - Debra Salonen


As you can probably tell by the titles almost all the books I have read this year have been chick flicks, but I am now going to try reading some different genres!

If you have any recommendations of good books you have read lately please let me know, so I can continue my list!
