Top Reads of 2016 – Part 1

Woohoo!  Although I may be a *Grinch* at Christmas – despite being named Noelle – I must say, I do LOVE sharing my #TopReadsOf2016!

This year I have decided that rather than trying to dwindle down a massive list of exceptional reads, I am going to share with you my #TopReads broken down from January to December! I will also share the original link to my review so you can check that out too!

This will be in four posts.  Part 1 being January to March and so on…I don’t think I need to spell it out for you! They will be in no particular order, are books I read in 2016 (not necessarily published in 2016) and some posts will be longer than others…mainly due to a massive reading slump I suffered last January which lasted all the way to May!  WTAF!?  Can you believe it!?   That will not be happening this year as I am officially #OnABreak – it’s not you, books -it’s me! ?? I just want to kick back and catch up on my much neglected TBR by reading my choices…..YAY!

So…let’s get this party started!  Here are my #TopReads2016 January to March!

Dead Lucky by Matt Brolly


Bad Samaritan by Michael J Malone 


No Longer Safe by AJ Waines 


Snow Blind by Ragnar Jonasson 


The Girl In The Ice by Robert Bryndza


Tuesday Falling by S. Williams


In The Shadows by Tara Lyons 


Gutshots: Ten Blows To The Abdomen ; Eleven The Hardest Way and The Harry Charters’ Chronicles by Graham Smith


The Cops of Manchester by Col Bury 


OMFG I almost forgot what great books I read at the start of this year!  So there you have it, Part 1 of my #TopReads for 2016!  Not sure when the next post will be out, but it won’t be long and there are some more CRACKING reads to check out!

Would love to hear your thoughts on any of the above or even some of your recommendations for this year…not that I need any more books….but I am an addict…and rehabilitation is NOT an option!

  1. Love reading all the different blogs I follow and their choices for books of the year! Expect mine at the very end of the year – I’m still reading!

  2. Diversity is what it is all about. If everyone read and loved the same books, the world would be a boring place! ? I have read a few on your list too and others are waiting on my TBR. Who knows, they could appear in my #TopReads2017! ?

  3. I have read a few of those, but it just shows how different we are as readers.. Maggie James, Fiona Barton, Linda Huber, Betsy Reavely would be on my list along with David Evans, Robin Roughley and Andy Barrett for the male writers

  4. I have quite a few of these on my tbr or wish list, so your making me want to bump them up. so many books so little time! Some I haven’t heard of so more to add to the long tbr.

    I’d recommend Chris Carter Robert hunter series and Angela marson Kim stone series.
