Ahoy!

As the end of the year is nigh, I assumed it is about time to decide which were my favourite books and my not so favourite books of the year are. So, I present to you the 2015 BOOK AWARDS! Presented by the fabulous, fantastic Angelina Jolie. Nah, just kidding, it's me.

2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K Rowling

    1. I was feeling creative and decided that I'd make the certificates. I'm not entirely happy with them, but it's something.

      Happy 2016 to you too!

  4. Ahh, I loved TABINOF too! It was one of my favourite books this year too, because it was so funny, and really picked me up. I haven't read many others from your lists, but I really want to read George, because it seem like such an important, but sweet book. Great post, Hannah - thanks for sharing! :D

  5. I haven't read Rebecca, but I love all the classics on your list. From those, I would pick To Kill a Mockingbird as my favorite. I just love it so much (and I love the movie too).

  8. Love Rebecca too! And have you seen the new Macbeth film? Wonderfully atmospheric!

    I'm embarrassed that I didn't put anywhere near as much effort into my roundup post as you have done. The certificates are a fab idea :-)
    Anyhow, these are my Top Ten Books of 2015

    1. I haven't see the new mAcbeth film but I have watched one. I can't say which.

      More effort actually went into deciding which books I should include, but thank you!

  12. I am very guilty of only reading one book this year(I know how bad) but I absolutely loved it. It is Dark Places by Gillian Flynn who also wrote the book Gone Girl which is now a film. It was such a good crime/thriller read and I was engrossed with it for 4 days! Did you not enjoy Girl Online? I must admit I asked for it as a Christmas present when it first come out and when I recieved the book it was not what I was expecting so I never got round to reading it!
