I love books. That's not a secret. I love that they are new worlds, make us think, introduce us to wonderful characters. I love that when a book is finished pieces of it stay with me and flash into my mind in the days, weeks, (if it's really good) months and years afterwards.
These are the books I loved this year:
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Schaffer - about friendship, love, loyalty and joy in the little things even when life is a struggle. Reviewed here.
The Grace Outpouring by Roy Godwin and Dave Roberts - a non-fiction book, stuffed with stories of God moving and working in a retreat centre in Wales. Totally inspirational.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - an old favourite but my sister gave me a beautiful copy for my birthday. It has gold edged pages. I'm a sucker for a pretty book - I am a firm believer of judging books by their covers.
What did you read this year that stayed with you? What made it so special?
