Have a Bookish Christmas!

christmas christmas movies merry christmas love actually hugh grant

I'm currently watching my favourite film for Christmas which is Love Actually (RIP Alan Rickman 😢) if you can't tell from the gif above. Another one is The Holiday too...Christmas romances that's all I seem to watch these days. Haha. 😍

Anyways moving on... this will be my last post till the new year really. I'm off to my families house tomorrow and having a well earned break. Yay! I know I said I would be back with blogging the last few weeks but work has certainly kept me busy - trying to organise your own library takes a long time - my head says its like moving into your own house, you will change things until you have it how you want it. So hopefully 2017 will be a different story. Can you believe another year has passed. I can't and what a whirlwind it has been. But a great year none-the-less. But more of that when I'm back on January 1st - then back at work on the 3rd. What I love about working in a school is you do get 2 weeks off for Christmas. Haha. So as it is the last post of 2016, I would like to share with you my top 16 books of the year. I admit I haven't read as much as I wanted nor have I completed my Goodreads challenge sadly but still I've read some amazing books and discovered some new ones too. 

Girl Against the Universe by Paula StokesBilly and Me by Giovanna FletcherWhat's a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly BourneBuilt by Jay CrownoverOur Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland26255907What I Couldn't Tell You by Faye BirdThe Black Key by Amy Ewing
...And a Happy New Year? by Holly BourneThe Winner's Curse by Marie RutkoskiThe Unexpected Everything by Morgan MatsonA Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
The Witch's Kiss by Katharine CorrDid I Mention I Miss You? by Estelle MaskameThe Girl Who Fell by Shannon M. ParkerFlawed by Cecelia Ahern

Might as well choose 16 as we are in 2016 I couldn't just choose 10 thats for sure - there has been so cracking books hasn't there?! Well there is lots of Holly Bourne - I can't not this has been the best series of the entire year. I actually didn't realise just how many books were released by her. Plus 2016 marks the end of the Spinster Year too. As well as the finale of the DIMILY series and of course the best dystopian series to date - The Lone City series by Amy Ewing. New books, authors and genres also feature Paula Stokes, Giovanni Fletcher, Cecelia Ahern, S.M. Parker, Krystal Sutherland and Faye Bird. 

So that's my bookish 2016!!! An awesome year it has been.... So I guess it's time for me to say Happy Holiday's to all and wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Magical New Year. See you in 2017!

Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.

The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.
