About My Library

I still buy far too many books, my unread outnumber my read ones, but it's a nice struggle! I aim to read over 120 books each year, and to review most of the books I read - Do let me know what you think, (expanded reviews and comments are on my blog 'AnnaBookBel' http://www.annabookbel.net/ and also http://shinynewbooks.co.uk which I co-founded and co-edit).


While I mostly read contemporary and 20thC literature, I also read some genre fiction (primarily crime & SF) and non-fiction (esp good biographies, anything rock'n'roll and popular science/medical books). I believe the best children's novels are as good as adult ones, although I read little YA now.

In 2023 I read 120 books 17 earned 10/10. In 2024, I've read 15 books so far, 2 of which get 10/10

My Books of the Year:

2023 - The Ghost Theatre by Mat Osman
2022 - Mischief Acts by Zoe Gilbert

2021 - Diary of a Film by Niven Govinden

2020 - Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

2019 - Slow Motion Ghosts by Jeff Noon
2018 - To Throw Away Unopened by Viv Albertine
2017 - The Day That Went Missing by Richard Beard; A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles, The Children of Jocasta by Natalie Haynes (joint winners)
2016 - Golden Hill by Francis Spufford
2015 - Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller
2014 - Hangover Square by Patrick Hamilton
