My top 20 reads for 2016…

I have read so many wonderful books this year that this has been so much harder than the top 10 I did for 2015! I have read 244 books according to Goodreads where I set myself a target of 200 books for 2016. Three of the books that made this list aren’t out till 2017 but there are so many brilliant books coming out next year I thought I would include them this year to make next December a little easier for me!! These books are in no particular order, just books I have adored this year with links to my reviews.
