THE DBR AWARDS 2017 | My Year In Books

Hey guys, and happy Monday! Today I am really excited to be posting my yearly New Years post - my version of a Top 10 books I've read this year. The DBR Awards allow me to share with you which books really rocked my year - and I split them into categories so you can get a sense of what kind of book it is, in case you want to pick it up yourself! (And obviously, I would highly recommend that you do...)

I have read so many brilliant books this year, and for that, I would like to thank the wonderful publishers and authors who have kindly sent me the most fabulous new publications, the friends who have recommended to me some great reads, and my university professors who have put some excellent stuff on my reading lists...


 I will link my review (If I wrote one) if not, I will link the Goodreads page <3

So without further ado, here are the winners of the DBR Awards 2017!
