Six in Six, 2015 - my year in books so far...


I stumbled across the Six in Six 2015 meme over on The Book Jotter's blog and thought it looked like a great way to summarise my year in books so far. Jo has a few suggestions for different categories or you can make your own - I did a mixture of the two. My answers are below, with links to any books that I've reviewed. If you have a go, send me a link to your post below, I'd love to read it, and also remember to post back to The Book Jotter.

  1. Oh this is a cute way to do a roundup of fave books, although I doubt I've read six books about food this year! There are definitely some books I really want to read on your lists, so I'm glad they have made the faves list.

    1. It is good isn't it? As soon as I saw the post I knew I had to give it a go. Ah I love books that have food as an underlying theme so I'm always on the lookout for teashops, baking etc in a book!

      Will be sure to check out your page :)

  2. I just love Cathy Bramley, I am going to wait for the whole books as opposed to the parts.

    Thank you for joining in my meme.

    1. That's what I do too.. I think waiting between each section would be too much for me!

      Oooh I really enjoyed it, thanks for doing it!
