Hero of the year:
Leo from The Longest Holiday
 
 
Leo was lovely! He pulled off the gorgeous, brooding hero to perfection and certainly made me swoon.
 
 
Heroine of the year:
Helen Walsh from The Mystery of Mercy Close
 
 
Helen suffers from depression and can feel herself being swallowed more and more as the book progresses. Helen is a fantastic, funny character but she is also brave and strong and I admired her for that.

Book of the year:
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
 
 
I read Life After Life quite early on in the year, but even then I knew it would be a strong contender for my Book of the Year. You can see my review of the book here
