2016 Favorite Books

Below is a list of my favorite books read in 2016 - they are in no particular order. This year I took the 50 State Reading challenge in which I chose many books based on location rather than content and in the process came across quite a few gems I might not have otherwise read.

Swan by Frances Mayes
Bryson City Tales by Walt Larimore
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall
Dewey by Vicki Myron
The Postmistress by Sarah Blake
John Riley's Daughter by Kezi Matthews
Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
The Flood Girls by Richard Fifield
Basket Case by Nancy Haddock
Cimarron by Edna Ferber
Evan Help Us by Rhys Bowen
The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth
Keeper of the Doves - Betsy Byars
The Art of Keeping Cool by Janet Taylor Lisle
The Casual Vacancy - J.K. Rowling
The Street Lawyer by John Grisham
The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
