Favorite Books Of 2016 {Lynn}


I have read 66 books in 2016. I have a few more partially read that I might finish by the end of the week, so that number might go a little higher.

Sixty-six books is a great reading year for me. In fact, it is the most books I have read in quite a few years. In 2015 I read 53 and in 2014 I only read only 40. So, 66 books is a good reading year for me.

I will admit though that even though I read 66 books many of them were easy reads. Or at least what I would consider easy reads. I usually read a lot of non-fiction. This year I read quite a bit of fiction. Almost half of them were fiction, which is not at all normal for me.

This year I also read a lot of books I liked, but not very many that I loved. So I guess it was a great year for the number of books I read, but not so great for the quality of books I read.

Several books did stand out for me though this year. I read Alice’s Piano early in the year and it is now on my list of favorite WWII books. I loved the book and gave several away as gifts this year. If you love WWII books it is a must read.

I also discovered the Charles Lenox Mysteries series this year and I love it. So far I have read the first three books in this series and I can’t wait to read more. I am pretty sure I will finish the entire series in the next few months. There are not a lot of fiction series that I love, but this is one that I do. I am so glad I discovered it.

Here is a list of ten books that made my favorites list this year. Three of them are in the mystery series.

What were your favorite books of the year? Did you read any great books?
