Read 2016

These are the books I have read in 2016!

(Those underlined are hyperlinked to my review – these start in mid-June 2017 as this is when I started my blog. I am aiming to eventually write reviews for all the other books I have read. Those marked with a * before the date are books I have received for review. First number after the title and author is my rating and those in brackets are the Goodreads’ rating)
