My goal for 2018 was to read more than 24 books. My reading this year has been hit and miss. I know I did a count in September and it was 21 books and I thought this was going to be an easy target to achieve with an average of 2 books a month. I was very much mistaken because it remained at 21 books, therefore I didn’t reach my target.
Here is my reading list: –
- Flesh and Blood – Stephen McGann
- A Little Leaving – Anne Bennett
- The Liverpool Rose – Katie Flynn
- Me Life Story – Scarlett Moffat
- The River Maid – Dilly Court
- Fear of the Collar – Patrick Touher
- Mothering Sunday – Rosie Goodwin
- A Daughter Courage – Kitty Neale
- The Soldiers Daughter – Rosie Goodwin
- An Orphans Secret – Maggie Hope
- Mill Girls – Tracey Johnson
- Dancing in the Dark – Maureen Lee
- Pie N Mash & Prefabs – Norman Jacobs
- The Report – Jessica Francis Kane
- A view Across the Mersey – Anne Baker
- The Summer Maiden – Dilly Court
- A Promise Between Friends – Carol Rivers
- Stories of the Law and How It’s Broken – The Secret Barrister
- No Silver Spoon – Katie Flynn
- A Christmas Candle – Katie Flynn
- First Man in Leading the Front – Ant Middleton
A few new authors this year and the Stories of the Law and How it’s Broken by The Secret Barrister was a very educational book into the legal system in the U.K.
A book that very educational was Flesh and Blood by Stephen McGann. A very informative book on family and medical history through the decades/centuries in Ireland and U.K. I do love to hear about people’s family history and even better if I get educated on the way. Worth a read.
As for the First Man in the Leading the Front by Ant Middleton. I think this man is misjudged by his size and chosen career. I wouldn’t make assumptions and read this book.
The most horrific book I read this year was Fear of the Collar by Patrick Touher. The cruelty to innocent children was unbelievable and was well worth the read. The eye opener.
In 2019, I will aim to read 24 books again. I will have too as my house is full of books and I need to de clutter. Let’s see how this year goes. Happy Reading.
Does anyone have any book recommendations?
