Notable Reads of 2016
I've had the craziest reading year once again: 146 titles and the way things are going, I'm going to clock at 150 by December 31. I wouldn't say there was as much tremendous material as the previous years, but I've read some life-affirming books again in 2016. The books in this list didn't quite make my year's best, but were significantly better than average and were deserving of a special year-end mention. The difference between these books and the book that will be announced on December 20 is somewhat a question of personal taste. They are awesome and you might very well enjoy THESE better, so make sure to read both!
Shout out to Lauren Beukes' Broken Monsters, Kristopher Triana's The Ruin Season, Andrew Armacost's The Bohemian Guide to Monogamy and the Lost Signals anthology, which were cut last and are also worth checking out.
