Here's my list of the best books I read this year. It was difficult to narrow it down, I could easily have twice the number up here. I tried to have ten only but I couldn't do it. So, I managed to chop the list down to a baker's dozen. Lucky 13.
I'm listing them in no particular order because choosing where they should stand in comparison with each other is impossible. Although, if I had to say which one was my absolute favourite, if I was about to be kidnapped by aliens (for example) to read them bedtime stories and they said I could only take one of these books, it would probably be Stuart Neville's The Ghosts Of Belfast. That one blew me away.
And now for the Lucky 13...
