In the chronological order in which I read them:
1. THE FORGETTING TIME by Sharon Guskin
2. A MAN CALLED OVE by Fredrik Backman
3. EVERYBODY'S FOOL by Richard Russo
4. DOLLHOUSE by Fiona Davis
5. READERS OF BROKEN WHEEL RECOMMEND by Katarina Bivald
6. MISCHLING by Affinity Konar
7. FILL THE SKY by Katherine A. Sherbrooke
8. FIFTH PETAL by Brunonia Berry (2017 release)
9. MOONGLOW by Michael Chabon (2017 release)
10. SETTING FREE THE KITES by Alex George
11. THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING by Fannie Flagg
I read a lot of suspense in 2016 but, as the year went on, I found myself drawn to comforting books about small towns, books, and people being good to people. So, my favorites were probably MAN CALLED OVE, READERS OF BROKEN WHEEL RECOMMEND, and THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING. Consider them the book version of comfort food!
I am excited to begin a new year of reading. As usual, I challenge myself to read 52 books a year. My focus is primarily literary fiction but I am always up for a good suspense/mystery novel. Longtime readers know I have a special weak spot for Gothic/family secret mysteries.
