As 2018 comes to an end, I’m looking back at the books I’ve read this year. There have been some incredible books, and some that weren’t so incredible..and some that I just did not like at all! I’ve just about managed to narrow down my favourite 5 books – not all of them are from this year, I just happened to discover them this year. So, without further ado, in no particular order..
People have been going crazy for this book this year so I knew I had to get my hands on it, just to see if it lived up the the hype. I am happy to say that it really, really does.
Skin Deep introduces us to Delia, a child who lives with her mother, father and younger brothers on the remote island of Inishcrann, off the coast of Mayo. Isolated from the mainland by the ocean between them, and further isolated from the island by her father, Delia is besotted with her father, who dotes on her, and tells her that she is the queen of the island and that there is nobody like her.
