1. Loved this post – you managed to read so many books in 2016. It reminds me there are so many books I want to read. I am hoping to tick quite a few off my list this year. I adored The Year of Living Danishly, as you well know & Water For Elephants was a book I read a few years ago & loved too – I made my Mum read it too. I am excited to see what gems you read in 2017 x

    • It’s nice to look back on as I’d forgotten some of the great books I’d read this year, it has inspired me a little more for this year to keep it going. Looking forward to seeing your reads this year too!

  2. This looks like a fantastic list of books. And now I have some fabulous recommendations to read this year. I love your fan girl recommendations. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    • Thanks Lucy, I know they are not everyone’s thing but at the same time there are so many people out there who love them! Let me know if you read any, I’d love to know if you like them xxx

  3. Ah love this and I think I need to join Good reads. I read so much more last year than I usually do. Lots and lots was chick-lit but i read some really good thrillers too and I’m not actually sure how many I read when I try to look back.

    • You should join goodreads – something about being able to look back on a list of books you’ve read makes me happy – well lists of anything really, haha! Then I’d get to nosy at what you’re reading too 🙂 I don’t read a lot of chick lit but I’m trying to branch out more and my Nana has leant me a couple of thrillers so I’m looking forward to trying them.

  4. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reading this! Well done on reading 50 books that really is brilliant. It sounds like you really got the bug for it last year so no doubt it will carry on this year too so I’ll be stalking your pics on Instagram! I loved A Year of Living Danishly too it made me want to pack a suitcase immediately. You’ve reminded me that I have The Night Circus on my to be read pile too, I really must bump it up to the top.

    • Oh you must, I think you’d love it! I’m thinking of reading it again after writing this. I’ve got your book post bookmarked so must get round to reading it this week, I love to see what others are enjoying.

  5. Really enjoyed this post Hayley, there are a couple of my favourites from last year in here and also a few I haven’t heard of – I’m off to investigate. I’ve had to start a list of all the books I want to read though as I just can’t buy/borrow any more until I’ve got through the pile I’ve been accumulating! x

    • Yes, I’m getting the same way! I’ve got a list of what I actually have in the house/on kindle to read so will have to tick off a few of those first. Love having a nosy at what everyone is reading though! xx

  6. All your reading makes me so jealous! and your blog is the first place I look whenever I am searching for a new read, especially for holidays. I used to read so much as a teen, and sometimes I really miss it! Blogging seems to take up my evenings, and I find there is always more to do! It can be a little frustrating sometimes! x

  7. Wow you have read so much. Wish I had more time to read but I have been doing on the start of this year. I have made note of a lot of these to read from you this year. Thanks for recommending.
