* I was planning on reading more, unfortunately there just weren’t enough hours in the day. I’m disappointed that I didn’t read everything on my list in 2016, which were 37 books.

For Christmas 2016 the books I received from family were

• A child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas
• Tommy & Tuppence complete series by Agatha Christie
• Miss Marple & Mystery – complete short stories by Agatha Christie

Did you manage to read all of the books on your to be read pile during 2016? What was your favourite read/author discovery of 2016?
