My Best of the Rest: other books I read in 2016 that I loved

 

A confession: I have spent 2016 reading middle grade and young adult novels almost exclusively.

Not just because I wanted to improve my writing craft and reading widely in your genre is THE best way to improve your writing skills, but because

THEY ARE SO DARN GOOD!

 

And I didn’t get to half of the books I’d hoped to read in 2016.

 

so-many-books

 

But I didn’t ONLY read kidlit, and the following books rocked my world in 2016:

 

only-street-in-paris

Ah Paris, I will be back soon…

 

sputnik

A gift from my daughter, now I understand what the fuss is all about. Haruki Murakami is a genius

 

my-life-on-the-road

My hero. Always. Her stories will inspire and educate you!

 

mrs-dalloway

Why didn’t I ever read this before? Bah! But I’ve read it now. and will again…

 

devil-in-the-white-city

Evil walks among us – always. A riveting tale of a mass murderer in a bygone era… Kept me up reading, and because I was scared to go to sleep….

 

view-from-the-cheap-seats

The genius. He could write a book about plumbing and I’d read it…

 

essex-county

The best graphic novel I’ve ever read

 

islam

The more you know. A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the history of this beautiful faith in simple terms

 

the-purple

No one loves Old Hollywood scandal like I do. This one did not disappoint. The stuff that dreams are made of..

 

revolution

The revolution will not be televised, it will be within. Yup.

The last one is a cheat because I am only 3/4 of the way through but it is already one of my favourite books ever:

 

the-wonder

 

There you have it! And now I can’t wait to see what great reads 2017 will bring me!

 

Happy Reading!
