A Year in Reading Part 1: Fiction

2016 Notables

The Reading List for 2016, while shorter than years past, still opened the covers of many favorites, from welcoming debuts to follow up works from those writers I always chase after. Here are ten of my favorites that I would recommend you add to your own lists, or to consider when browsing the shelves at your local bookstores or libraries.
