As I wind down for the year, I looked back over all the colourful book covers I have on my trusty Kindle Fire, and have realised that it wasn’t a bad year of reading at all.
There are a few novels which I have left off this list as they were, sadly, not novels that I would recommend to others. Also left off, are 10 non-fiction works that I ploughed through in the quest for a little self-development.
Of the 31 novels listed, I have highlighted my Top 10 suggestions with the hope to introduce you to new authors you might not have read before. They cover the genre’s of Action, Thrillers, Fantasy, Steampunk, Cli-Fi, Crime, and Mystery and a little espionage.
It was incredibly tough to come up with a favourite, but in the end, I chose on JL Morin’s, Nature’s Confession. It’s a zany, fantastical read and a product of a clearly whimsical mind. This book, however, covers some serious and important topics that are affecting the planet we live on, so very relevant. It reminded me a little of Star Trek, infused with The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and a little Dr Who thrown in the wonderful mix.
For the month of December, I intend to relax by the pool, or on the beach, and work on a new series of novellas and novels.
