Six in Six – 2018 Edition
This meme originates from Jo at The Book Jotter and having thoroughly enjoyed participating over the last couple of years I wanted to see what my Six in Six looked like in 2018!
The aim is to sort your reads into six categories – you can choose from the ones Jo suggests or come up with your own. Although the same book can obviously feature in more than one category, I’ve chosen to select one book for each category from my favorite reads of the year so far.

Six new authors to me

I’ve met some great new authors in 2018 who write in a variety of genres.
