Books Reviewed in 2016

This is a list of the books I read in 2016. Once again, my list is short. The death of my FIL and then later the death of my mother really affected me towards the end of the year.

Each link takes you directly to my review of that book. Happy New Year! May 2017 be filled with plenty of great books.

Books That I Want To Read

There are so many books that I want to read right now. Some are old, some are newish but all of them are in my “want” file.

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

Under the Harrow


Absolutely on Music: Conversations

Today Will Be Different

The Mothers

Cruel Beautiful World

American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers

One of Us: The Story of Anders Breivik and the Massacre in Norway

The Third Wife

The Wonder Garden

The Opposite of Everyone

As you can see, I have a serious case of the “wants”. I am still trying to finish my one book before I can dive into these others. Because I’ve been so involved with this one book, I’ve not even looked at Edelweiss or NetGalley recently. What am I missing? Anything good?

What about you? What book are you dying to get to right now?
