I had a bad reading year last year. I only read 79 books. 11, 075 pages. Almost half the 20, 061 pages I read in 2015.
And I was really bad at rating the books I actually did read on goodreads last year too. If I'd done more ratings I think there'd be more books here. Still I managed to give 7 books 5 stars.
Reckoning. An extraordinary memoir from Magda Szubanski.
The Minpins. A re-read of one of my very favourite Dahls.
Cyclone. Jackie French's retelling of Cyclone Tracy for a new generation.
The Anti-Cool Girl. Is actually a cool book.
And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda. A powerful anti-war ballad.
The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen 83 1/4 Years Old. Oh so naughty grandparents in a Dutch nursing home.
Charlie and the War against the Grannies. A silly, funny debut from Alan Brough.
7 out of my 79 reads were five stars.
3 Aussie books
3 Adults reads
3 Picture books
3 Female authors
4 Male authors
5 New to me authors
Rather predictable to have Roald Dahl and Jackie French make an appearance I suppose. Lets hope it's a better reading this year, although I'm already 8 books behind my goodreads target! And it's still February...
