Books That Kept Me 'Up All Night' In 2016...


It's been a pretty awful year this year, to put it mildly! Life on the blog hasn't exactly been wonderful but 2017 promises to be better. I won't be gallivanting about as much next year, hopefully, so posting will be a lot more regular than this year. Before I post my 'Best Of...' lists I wanted to put together a list of my 'five clocks' books, and there's been a few!
