Happy New Year! So it is the beginning of a new year and I hope everyone had a wonderful holidays! 

Last year was considerably a good year for me but not so good in the reading department. Looking at my list I only read nineteen books last year. That's a great difference as compared to my reading habits as in the past few years, in which I read about two books in a week. Nevertheless, my habit of listing down my top reads for the year never change and here it is:

Best Crime Fiction:

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Broken Harbour by Tana French












Best Literature

Asylum by Patrick McGrath











Best YA:

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins














Best Romance:

A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean













As of this year, I hope I will be able to read more books and that my favourite authors would release their new titles more quickly (e.g. Mo Hayder, Tana French, Anne Stuart... just to name a few) and last but not least, to discover more wonderful books and new authors as well. 

So, what are your top reads for last year?

  2. Anna and the French Kiss is just adorable - and I can't believe I still haven't read Tana French! Happy New Year, Melody :)


  3. Gone Girl is on quite a few best of lists--I guess I'd better read that one soon. I need to catch up on the Tana French novels. I've still only ever read In the Woods by her.

    I hope you have a great New Year, Melody!

    Gone Girl was an exciting read, wasn't it? I'm hoping to one day read the Tana French novels--I've heard so many great things about them.
