31. Their Fractured Light (The Starbound Trilogy #3)
My rating: 4 Stars 

So overall it was a great year for books! I only hated one of them, and I really enjoyed the overwhelming majority. The main disappointment was only reading 31 books when I’d set myself a goal of 52, and only finishing 4 book club books out of 12. Tragic effort.

Books not included, as I started them in 2015 but still have not finished, for varying reasons, but still intend to: Absolute Pandemonium by Brian Blessed, Ayoade on Ayoade by Richard Ayoade, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield and Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood.

Book currently reading: The Astrologer’s Daughter by Rebecca Lim.

Almost Midnight Update: It’s being formatted! Which means you are much closer to being allowed to read it.

And now I’m going back to reading! I suggest you all do likewise.
