1. 'The Lonely Hearts Travel Club: Destination Thailand' - Katy Colins
One of the first books I read this year and one that definitely surprised me with its amazingness. Since then I've also read the second part in Katy Colins' series, 'Destination: India' and it's just as brilliant as this first part.
2. 'The Birthday That Changed Everything' - Debbie Johnson
I love Debbie Johnson. Her writing is amazing and I was so excited to finally read her first full-length novel at the start of this year. The book was even better than I hoped it would be and made me fall in love with Debbie even more.
3. 'Wickham Hall' - Cathy Bramley
Cathy Bramley is undoubtedly one of my favourite chick lit authors of the moment. After 'Ivy Lane' and 'Appleby Farm' I couldn't wait to read 'Wickham Hall', which is probably my favourite Cathy Bramley novel up until now.
4. 'The Trouble with Emma' - Katie Oliver
Katie Oliver released her series 'The Jane Austen Factor' this year and 'The Trouble with Emma' was the second instalment. I really love Katie's style and how she transformed Austen's classics into great contemporary chick lit reads. Loved it!
5. 'The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart' - Anna Bell
I was really excited when I found out Anna Bell was treating us to another one of her lovely books this year. 'The Bucket List to Mend a Broken Heart' definitely lived up to my expectations and has been one of my favourite reads of 2016 so far.
6. 'Sleepless in Manhattan' - Sarah Morgan
Another great romance author that I discovered last year and I've been loving her work ever since. Sarah Morgan released the first part of her new three-part series earlier this year and it was a fantastic read.
7. 'The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper' - Phaedra Patrick
This book was one of the biggest surprises of 2016 for me. I had no idea what to expect but couldn't help but fall in love with protagonist Arthur Pepper.
8. 'The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea' - Jane Linfoot
I recently read Jane Linfoot's latest release and really loved it. It's also the first part of a new series and I already can't wait for the next instalment!
9. 'Novelista Girl' - Meredith Schorr
Meredith Schorr is a great new chick lit author and 'Novelista Girl' is the sequel to her great debut novel 'Blogger Girl.' Once again a fabulous read and I can't wait to read more of her work in the upcoming years!
