2016 Reading books reading

My Top 10 Reads in 2016

December 25, 2016

Unlike much of the rest of 2016, this was a good year in books. I feel like I read a lot of good books, more than just 10. In trying to make a decision about my top 10, there were actually 4-5 that came to mind right away as “the best;” but then when saying “this was a really good read for 2016,” I could probably have selected 25-30. Here’s my attempt to narrow it down:

undergroundrailroad

hillbillyelegy

sevenyearsintibet

breathbecomesair

justmercy

wheredyougo

I’m afraid I’m going to have to create a tie between 2 books, for #10, which actually makes this 11 books. Of course. Who can limit a top 10 book list to just 10? 😉
