My reading tally has been a bit measly so far this year (various boring life things getting in the way). But here goes.
Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn (quite an enjoyable read for its genre, even if you can guess the twists)
Number9dream - David Mitchell (pretty bonkers)
Wool - Hugh Howey (another dystopian story. Started off well, but lost momentum)
Veniss Underground - Jeff Vandemeer (utterly nuts, in a very good way. Loved it)
Shift - Hugh Howey (next in Wool series. Rapidly losing interest I'm afraid)
Alone in Berlin - Hans Fallada (powerful stuff. Everyone should read this)
The Gracekeepers - Kirsty Logan (whimsical and soggy fairytale)
The Sense of an Ending - Julian Barnes (I wanted to like it...)
