A Reader’s List of 2016 Books

I appear to be in a reading slump. A measly 15 books is all I’ve got to show for 2016. And of those 15, I can’t say that any of them stuck with me, which is why this year’s list isn’t a “best books” list, just a book one. So if you’ve got a recommendation, I’m all ears, eyes, and fingers – ready to make them part of my much-hoped for return to best books of 2017.

A Quietly Good Read

  1. The Last Painting of Sarah de Vos
  2. The Woman in Cabin 10
  3. Orphan Train
  4. Euphoria
  5. A Man Called Ove

Books That Punched Me in the Gut

  1. A Little Life
  2. The Nightingale

Books I Finished But Don’t Recall Much About Them

  1. Everyone Brave is Forgiven
  2. My Brilliant Friend
