Carol by Patricia Highsmith
This tells the story of Therese and her attraction to a woman she meets in a department store, the Carol of the title. It's a fairly short novel but the prose is wonderfully evocative. You can read my review here.
Girl Reading by Katie Ward
Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
Westwood by Stella Gibbons
Gibbons' work is now being reissued and this book absolutely delighted me. Set against the backdrop of WWII, the novel tells of Margaret Steggles and her connection with a richer family she comes across quite by accident. Funny and well-written. You can read my review here.
Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
Have you read any excellent books this year I should add to my own for next?
