My 2016 Books to Read…

Since I had my baby back in October 2014 I have seriously lacked the time to indulge in a good book. Towards the end of 2015 I picked up reading again and managed to finish the whole Harry Potter series in a few weeks.

I have since found that there is no excuse not to read, even with a lack of time I can manage to squeeze a few pages in here and there throughout my day and reading is good! It nourishes the soul. I am trying to divide my list between books of fiction and those to help me live the life of my dreams (cheesy but true). I am quite behind on the books that have been published so for some my list may seem a little dated.

I have already read 4 of my 16 and I’ve enjoyed every single one of them.

So without further ado, here is my list

  1. The Girl In The Spider’s Web – David Lagercrantz
  2. Brave Enough – Cheryl Strayed
  3. Sharp Objects – Gillian Flynn
  4. Ā The Miracle Morning – Hal Elrod
  5. The State We’re In– Adele Parks
  6. Dark Places – Gillian Flynn
  7. Looking For Alaska – John Green
  8. Snowed In For Christmas – Claire Sandy
  9. After You – Jojo Moyes
  10. Follow You Home – Mark Edwards
  11. Tiny Beautiful Things – Cheryl Strayed
  12. Torch – Cheryl Strayed
  13. Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert
  14. Into The Wild – Jon Krakauer
  15. The Girl On The Train – Paula Hawkins
  16. All The Bright Places – Jennifer Niven

I have ticked off the first four but the rest I will read in an order depending what I feel in the mood for.


I have to say The Miracle Morning was brilliant! Completely inspiring and I cannot wait to write my review on it after I’ve completed the first 30 day challenge.

I’d love to see what you are reading this year. Are you taking part in any reading challenges, part of any book clubs etc? Feel free to drop me a line if you have any recommendations:)

  1. I loved The Girl on the Train and had started listening to Tiny Beautiful Things but didn’t finish. Great list, good luck getting then all read and happy reading! Glad you are making more time to read. These days I listen to audio books while folding laundry and have to read before bed.


  2. I’ve read several of those books and have been thinking of reading Eat,Pray, Love again. Your post reminded me that I want to read more of Cheryl Strayed’s books and I have been hearing good buzz about Sharp Objects. Hmmm I think I will go to the library today.
