The year in books: Kindle/dead tree/library

This year, I’ve noted which books I’ve read as ‘real books’, as some people will still call them, which I read on the Kindle and which were borrowed from the library. Here are the results.
Dead tree books: 108
Kindle books: 45
Library books: 15 (in addition to the ‘real’ books above)

Could I choose a book of the year? These were the candidates:
The Signature of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert
An Officer and a Spy, Robert Harris
The Dead in their Vaulted Arches, Alan Bradley
The Burgess Boys, Elizabeth Strout
Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein
The Little Women Letters, Gabrielle Donnelly
At Break of Day/The First of July, Elizabeth Speller
The President’s Hat, Antoine Laurin
The Victorian City: Everyday Life in Dickens’ London, Judith Flanders

And the winner is a novel publicised as a YA book: Code Name Verity.

Comments

I reckon that was my favourite too. A fabulous book.
Isn't it great to find something new that will probably become a classic?
I have An Officer and a Spy on my kindle ready to read and Code Name Verity which I got on your recommendation. I'm looking forward to reading them both after my current book :)
I do hope you like them!
Shall add Code Name Verity to my TBR list!
Heartbreaking but so good. It's really stayed with me.
