2016 Redux: Still Another Year in Books
Wednesday, December 28, 2016
by justgrandmolly

My library card got quite a bit of use this year. I've read/listened to more books this year than I have maybe ever: 135. I attribute this to listening to audiobooks on my one hour round-trip commute and devouring any graphic novel I can get my hands on.

I made a strong effort this year to read books written by women and people of color. I hope to continue this in the years ahead. I'd like to participate in a reading challenge that will get me reading out of my comfort zone and that will give me deeper insight to our world. I read almost everything on my Summer Syllabus (aside from finishing one of the graphic novel series), along with many recommendations from my library's monthly book club. I also reread some favorites, including Wild, The Little Prince, and When You Reach Me. I'm also delving into the Anne of Green Gables series, which I've never read before but am quickly falling in love with.

I agonized over picking my favorites this year. Most of the titles on this list are for young readers. (Although I think that Bucky F*cking Dent takes the cake overall!) I read some really wonderful stories that I loved for different reasons. Aren't books the best?


Here's what I read this year. (All images courtesy of Goodreads.) Which of these have you read and loved (or hated!)? What did you read this year? What should I be reading in 2017?

Top 15 Favorites
The Complete Poetry, Maya Angelou
Between the World and Me, Ta-Nesihi Coates (audiobook, read by the author)
Matilda, Roal Dahl (audiobook, read by Kate Winslet)
Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye, Tania del Rio & Will Staehle
Bucky F*cking Dent, David Duchovny (audiobook, read by the author)
Stir: My Broken Brain and the Meals That Brought Me Home, Jessica Fechtor
The Turner House, Angela Flournoy
84, Charing Cross Road, Helene Hanff
My One Hundred Adventures, Polly Horvath
Dumplin', Julie Murphy
Bluffton: My Summer with Buster, Matt Phelan
I am Princess X, Cherie Priest
Nimona, Noelle Stevenson
Paper Girls (Vol. 1), Brian K. Vaughn
Where Am I Now?, Mara Wilson
