Best Books of 2016

I read 99 books and poems in 2016, and here's a detailed look at my reading. I read some amazing modern poems and picture books, but for my Best Of list, I decided to choose full-length books: fiction, nonfiction, romance, and children's. Here's what I loved:

Belgravia by Julian Fellowes
Lord Richard’s Daughter by Joan Wolf
News of the World by Paulette Jiles
A House Without Windows by Nadia Hashimi
Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes
The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen
The Innocents by Margery Sharp
Good Time Coming by C.S. Harris
The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere by Pico Iyer
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

My top favorite book was When Breath Becomes Air. It is simply unforgettable!

For details about each of the books, please visit my blog on All About Romance.

What a nice breadth of reading. I'm so happy to see The Innocents on your list. Did you read that because of me?

YES! You reviewed it on your blog, and I really liked what you wrote about it, so I decided to read it. And I'm so glad I did! So, thank you!
