Books I read: 2016.

Before I list off all of the books I read this year, I wanted to say a few quick things.I find it interesting to look back on all that I have read this year and see how much of it was influenced by those around me. Many of the books on this list are books people suggested that I read or that I was told I should read based on others books I had already read on Goodreads.Many of these books are books that I might not have enjoyed two or three years ago and it is odd to think how time can do that to one, tweak, alter and fine tune one’s taste in books. Yet, I have found with books I have reread many years apart that a book that one finds to truly speak to them never goes silent but instead whispers new things into their ear every time they turn its pages.Many of the things that I have read this year are just a shadow of all of the thoughts whirling around in my mind.It is also very intriguing to think about how my how writing, life, and actions would be different if I had not read the things I have read and instead and read entirely different things. I am well pleased with the books that I read this year, even when I did not always end up enjoying a book as I thought I would. These books greatly influenced me, made me think, made me laugh and cry and inspired me to think about our world in different ways: That is the power of books.Therefore, in no particular order, here are all of the books that I can remember reading this year….
