Our top 10 books from the last four years


When I was putting together our top three BookBubble Book Club reads of 2023 (see previous post if you’re interested), I realised that this is our fourth Christmas since we formed during lockdown. And we’ve just chosen our 57th book to read together. That’s a lot of pages that we’ve shared! It’s been a huge amount of fun, with plenty of lively discussions and a lot of laughter. So I’m indulging in a little look back at our top ten since we started (with only one point between our top read and number 10, so really not much in it at all). Our list includes historical fiction, cozy crime, non fiction and contemporary fiction so pretty varied. Here they are, in reverse order…
