2016 Your Book Year in Review
What were your faves? What fell flat?
Best book this year was The Name of the Wind. So different than my usual reads and stayed with me. I read so much fluff that there were a lot of meh books.
The Lost Girls
The Lake House
A Reliable Wife
The Swan's of 5th Avenue
Those were the books I enjoyed this year...that I see on my book list
And I lost my kindle on vacation (it was cheap and several years old) so will be updating my e reader...as I got a nice amazon gc for a research study I did.
I read 52 books. 23 were non-fiction. That's not a bad ratio.
My favorites this year were The Lost Girls by Heather Young, Beale Street Dynasty: Sex, Song, and the Struggle for the Soul of Memphis by Preston Lauterbach, Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman, Clara Bow: Runnin' Wild by David Stenn, The Girls by Emma Cline, What Remains of Me by Alison Gaylin, Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight, and Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery by Robert Kolker,
My least favorite seems to have been Bed by David Whitehouse. I gave it 2 stars on Goodreads. That pretty much means I hate it. I almost never rate any book less than 3. I feel guilty for giving bad reviews.
Me too . I usually don't leave a rating at all. Although I also don't finish books I hate

I just finished "Good Girl." I really enjoyed it.
