I cannot believe I am reviewing everything from 2017 and looking at 2018 and my To Be Read list.

Here is a simple summary from Goodreads. I absolutely love Goodreads as you can set yourself a challenge of how many books to read in a year and keep an eye on your progress as well as friends. 2017 I set my challenge to 20 but completed 29, in 2016 I had only just discovered Goodreads and hardly read due to not being able to focus.

Through the year I have posted reviews on my blog, specifically those that link to domestic abuse. Here’s a list of reviews from the last year on my blog.

  1. Emotional First Aid by Hayley Wheeler
  2. In Sheep’s Clothing by George Simon
  3. Transition by Jo Huey
  4. Autumn Sky by Helen Pryke
  5. Broken Pieces and Broken Places by Rachel Thompson
  6. Walls of Silence by Helen Pryke

For all of my reviews please see my Goodreads profile and feel free to follow me.

I am also working my way through my TBR list and want to let you know what I am going to be reading over the next months. Some are from fellow authors I have connected with and some from those who write about domestic abuse as well.

  1. The Monster That Ate My Mommy by Jessica Aitken-Hall
  2. Snare by Lilja Sigurðardóttir
  3. Perfect Imperfections by Taryn Leigh
  4. The Sacrificial Man by Ruth Dugdall
  5. Get Happy! The Essential Daily Guide to a Happier Life by Jo Howarth
  6. Oh! What a Pavlova by Isabella May
  7. The Right to Be Me by Stella Eden
  8. No Fourth River by Christine Clayfield
  9. The Healers Secret by Helen Pryke
  10. The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May (ARC)
  11. The Carrero Effect by L.T.Marshall
  12. Alice by J.M.Sullivan
  13. Behind Closed Doors by B A Paris
  14. Between You and Me by Lisa Hall

      Yes it’s super cool isn’t it? You should be able to find it through google if you put a Year in review GoodReads.
      Glad you have added to your TBR pile. X

  4. Jessica Johnson

    -I LOVED Perfect Imperfections! I’m sure you will enjoy it as well.
    -Behind Closed Doors is very good, but a difficult read. It deals with domestic abuse too, so be prepared for that one.
    -It! Good luck with that one! It’s ‘ginormous’! Lol- I have never read it or seen the movie/mini series

    • jenniferlauragilmour

      Thank you for your advice. It’s lovely to hear what others think. I’m sure you will be accurate Jessica as you are an avid reader. X

    • jenniferlauragilmour

      That’s great to hear. I am sure I will. I am starting Perfect Imperfections today. I have finished my first book of the year today.
