24 Books I Read This Year


I work a lot of red eyes which means I have to figure out a way to stay awake. This means I read, quite a lot! Sometimes magazines, sometimes trashy romance and sometimes really good books I didn’t read as much as I wanted to, but I was able to read 24 books this year.

My current favorite genre is historical fiction, but I went through a huge non-fiction phase last year and I am a proud YA reader. The most interesting book I read this year was Salt to Sea, which is a story about the biggest WWII Naval tragedy that was never known very well. The other book was The Taster which is a story about a woman who becomes the taster for Adolf Hitler.

This is my list of the 24 Books I Read this year:

  1. Carnegie’s Maid by Marie Benedict
  2. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
  3. Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
  4. The Secrets of Flight by Maggie Leffler
  5. When It’s Real by Erin Watt
  6. Ike and Kay by James MacManus
  7. My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan
  8. The Taster by V.S. Alexander
