I managed to reach my goal of reading 50 (published) books this year.
(I find it necessary to clarify that these are published books only because I do read a lot of unpublished work for my critique partners, beta buddies, Pitch Wars mentee, and other writer friends. Often, these books would hit my favorites list as well, if they were published.)
Granted, some people have goals that blow my mind (200 books in a year? How is that even possible?), making my meager 50 seem like chump change. But still. It's a number I'm proud of.
My favorites? Good grief, there are so many. At one point it seemed that I gave everything I read 5 stars on Goodreads. And I meant it. 2016 was filled with some great, great books. Here are my top 10 fiction favorites, with a bonus non-fiction that I couldn't resist adding.
And my bonus non-fiction favorite of 2016......
