Here are my top ten recommended novels from what I’ve read this year (not many published this year, and they’re in the order of when I read them).

I enjoy Beauty and the Beast retellings, but the unhealthy relationship aspect also worries me a lot of the time. Good to see this version does consider this, although in not in depth.

Time travel romp. I enjoyed the read - the characters were engaging and likeable, and the convoluted shenanigans. Took me a little to get into (the time lag confusions possibly), but once immersed I was very much along for the ride.

Thanks in advance
