Top Books of 2013

This is the time of year when the reviewers look back on their favourite books of 2013. What were your favourites reads in 2013?

A Christmas Theme

As Christmas is fast approaching it makes sense to have a Christmas theme for our front page. Please include below any books with a Christmas theme or title which you feel that others may enjoy.

Crime Novels

Following on from my recent blog on crime writers, I felt it was time to have the theme of crime novels. What are your favourite crime novels? Please share them below so others can give them a try.

Books to Buy for Christmas

As the festive season is fast approaching, it qwould be wonderful if people could share any books which are a good read and would make a great present. It may be fiction, non fiction, adult or child - anything that you feel someone else would like to receive as a gift this Christmas.

Long Sagas for Long Evenings

As the evenings are starting to draw in I thought it was time to look at long sagas which may be suitable for the long evenings. Sagas often involve several generations of a family or town and may continue over several books. Do you have a favourite saga hat you think other people may enjoy on a long, dark evening?

Sporting Books

Following on from the article in The Independent entitled "The 10 Best Cycling Books" I wondered what other books people had enjoyed about sports. Some fiction books centre around a particular sport or sporting event whilst biographies and non-fiction books take us into the realities. Which books have you enjoyed which have sport as a major factor in them?

Stand Alone Books

Following on from our previous themes, series of books, it is a natural progression to stand alone books. These are books which are not part of a series but are designed to be read as a complete story. Please list below any books which fall in this catagory which you would like to recommend.

Series Books

Following on from Anne's blog on books that belong to a series, I thought it would be good if people could share titles from a series that they particularly enjoyed. Feel free to add a specific book title or the title of a series.

Biographies/Autobiographies

Choosing a good biography to read can be very hit and miss. Some are fascinating & some quite dreadful. Please post names of biographies which you particularly enjoyed & would like to recommend to others.

Book Group Suggestions

Anne has recently reviewed "Slumdog Millionaire" and suggested that this could be a good book for a book group, plenty to discuss. Have you any suggestions for books which would be good to read with a bookgroup?

Book Covers

There was an interesting article recently on the BBC site (link to the left under news articles) on how a book cover is selected for a book. Often the cover is the first thing we see about the book & we do "judge a book by it's cover". Which books have you found with interesting covers?

England & St George!

Today is St George's day so the theme is concerning all things english. So please post book titles that contain words connected with St George or England.
