December the 31st 2016
Dear fellow book lovers,
this year might have been a bit of a roller coaster (the understatement of the century, perhaps), but we made it. Through breathtaking ups and heartbreaking lows, through hardbacks, paperbacks, ebooks and audiobooks, we made it. Oh, and it was an absolute pleasure to share it with you. We hope that 2017 will be everything you need and want it to be.
We would raise our to read piles for a toast, but that’s probably not wise. Instead, we leave you with two (one might be the loneliest number, but two doesn’t even begin to cover it either!) of our favorite reads of the year.
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller
As Neil Gaiman once wrote,
“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
With love and amongst pages,
