End-of-Year Roundup: Best Books of 2016

Well. Thank goodness THAT is over, amiright? It’s good to be in 2017 and starting off fresh, is it not, friends? I love the New Year. I love so many things about it: the feeling of renewal, of fresh starts, of second chances, of redetermination, of hope. This year is gonna be my year, y’all, I can feel it – and I just know it’s going to be your year, too!

I originally was not going to write a “best books” post for 2016 because of the fantastic amount of excellent fiction (and wee bit of non-fiction) I read last year, but several people requested that I did write one, so… here we are! In no particular order, I will proceed to share with you my Top 11 Fave Books of 2016. Why eleven, you ask? Because I can, that’s why.

Y’all, these books were so amazing. Please do not ask me for a top one, two, or three. I honestly could not break it down for you. Each one has its own unique personality and charm, and you must read each of them! I will say that A Mother’s Reckoning by Sue Klebold is such an important book to read, especially if you are a parent or someone else who works closely with children. It truly changed the way I think about and interact with my son on a daily basis. Also, major trigger warnings if you are going to read Difficult Women by Roxane Gay – while this is a truly compelling collection of short stories, she does write about sexual violence toward women on multiple occasions.

Oh my gosh, you guys – I am so excited for the books to come in 2017! I’ve already started my year off on a great note – more to come on that later – and plan to keep it going strong. Woo-hoo!! Happy Reading in 2017, y’all!!

What were your fave books of 2016?
