Best Reads of 2016

I read 11/70 books that I thought were very good (4/5) or above.  These 5 books were my favorites:



1.  The Kind Worth Killing (Swanson) ~ Psychological Thriller






2.  Thirteen Ways of Looking (McCann) ~ Short Story Collection


















5.  Behind Closed Doors (Paris) ~ Psychological Thriller




I'm hoping for a STELLAR 2017 in all things!

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ I'm definitely one of them! I need great books. Five books in a year is not good enough!

  4. I really want to read Swanson's book. I have his others too still to read. I hope you have a great new year in books, Joy!

    1. Literary Feline ~ Thank you! Same to you! I think I have another one by Swanson, but that may be a wish - not sure at the moment. :)

  5. I loved Behind Closed Doors! What a thriller! I can't wait to try The Kind Worth Killing since I was quite impressed with his new release. Hope you have a fantastic year, Joy!

    1. Les ~ I can't wait to read Swanson's new release! :) I'm incredibly excited that I have a few that I can't wait to get to. That's encouraging!

      Btw - bummer news . . . I'm not like Cody's book. :( It has been a major struggle to get through. I'm soooooo disappointed. I want to give up, but I can't. I've waited too long for a book by him.

    2. I didn't know he had a new book out! What a disappointment that it's a struggle. I felt the same way about the most recent book by P.J. Tracy (and the last two by Tana French). :(

    3. Les ~ First of all, I meant to say, I'm not liking Cody's book. Grrrr

      Secondly, you just forgot. :) I told you in a Goodreads message in the summer. NBD! It's not worth exploring. :(

      I'm with ya on the Tracy book. I haven't read the lastest French books. I really want to let this one go (The Truth Factory), but can't.
