Late to the party with this annual poll as with so much else lately. I think what is noticeable about this year's reading is how many re-reads there were, and how many books by the same author. I suppose this can be explained as comfort reading - lots of old favourites. Mostly fiction this year, in previous years there's always been more of a mix between fiction and non fiction. Comfort reading again I suppose.
