The Writing Greyhound's All Time Favourite Books

Last Updated: 26 September 2022

Bookshelves The Writing Greyhound

As I'm sure everyone knows by now, I read a lot and I love to share my thoughts and opinions on the books I read. I aim to read a minimum of 50 books a year and while they're not always five-star favourites, I read widely across most genres. My favourites can be quite diverse.

Some might say that I'm a little stingy with my reviews because I only ever give five stars to the best of the best. However, as a result, all my five-star rated books come highly recommended! I've compiled a list of all my five-star favourites, segmented by genre, so you can easily find your next read.

For a reminder of my review rating system, check out my book review policy.

I will be regularly revisiting this post to add the best of the most recent books I read, so make sure you keep checking back for my latest recommendations!

Note: While there are many series I love, I will only include the first book of any series I recommend. All books from a series will be marked with an asterisk (*)
