World Book Day 2019 #GreatReads

To celebrate this year’s World Book Day, I thought I’d share some of my favourite reads of the past ten years.

Ten books that stand out in my memory as being truly great reads.

I have entered them in the year I read them (not the publication year) and I have included links to my review of these titles.


The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton


The Help” by Kathryn Stockett


The boy who shoots crows” by Randall Silvis


Dark Winter” by David Mark


A man called Ove” by Fredrik Backman


Little Black Lies” by Sharon Bolton


I let you go” by Clare Mackintosh


The Bird Tribunal” by Agnes Ravatn


The Possible World” by Liese O’Halloran Schwarz


Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens

I am a life-long book lover and reader.  On World Book Day 2019, I thought I’d share my
own personal canon with you once again.
The books that made me the reader I am today.

    Great list Lynne. I have read 6 of your top 10, so will have to check out the ones I have not read.

  2. I’ve read a few of these, but I didn’t know you loved The Possible World so much. I’ve got that one on my Kindle and it’s long overdue to be read.
