The best of the 52 books I read this year

Book Twist

Wowzers! I am blown away that I actually read 52 books this year!

That is a new record for me, that I admittedly owe to listening to audiobooks in the car. There were 18 ebooks, 28 audiobooks, and five paperbacks in the mix (plus a four that I didn’t finish)

I actually read more books than I was able to review, so I’m only going to show 41 in this year’s ranking… especially because one of the books I just finished (Illuminae by Amy Kauffman) might be the best book I’ve ever read, but since it is fresh in my mind, and I frequently think a book is the best ever after reading it, I’m going to judge that one with next year’s books.

So here we are… of the 41 books I’ve reviewed this year, my ranking from most enjoyable to “not the best for me”. Click on any book cover to read the review.

 2016 most enjoyed at the top. Not for me at the bottom of the list

(Note: Being at the bottom does not mean it’s bad. It just means that I didn’t enjoy it as much as something else. Sometimes it is a bad match of reader to book.) Looking over this list, There weren’t too many I didn’t like. (Those would be the last four) Ranking was really hard this year.

Seven books in contention for number one

(I kept changing these around for one reason or another. I couldn’t name one of them the best, so these are the cream of the crop)


And some more awesome reads this year. Most enjoyed at the top:
