Books of 2016


I love tracking what books I read throughout the year. I tend to get through more audiobooks than paper books due to my long commute. (I spend about 2 hours a day in the car.) According to Goodreads I got through 55 books in 2016. That's 5 less books than last year but a number I'm still proud of. I wanted to mention my favorites in case you're looking for some recommendations. Here are the books I rated 4 out of 5 stars. (In no particular order.)
 
My favorite audiobooks of 2016: 
The Lost Island: A Gideon Crew Novel by Douglas Preston
Rainwater by Sandra Brown
Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
The Water Diviner by Andrew Anastasios
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

My favorite print books of 2016:

A Kiss from Maddalena by Christopher Castellani
My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life by Ruth Reichl 
The Firebird (Slains #2) by Susanna Kearsley
Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock 
Letters to the Lost by Iona Grey
The Secret Wisdom of the Earth by Christopher Scotton
Vintage by Susan Gloss
The Magician's Lie by Greer Macallister
Lost in the Forest by Sue Miller
Baby Catcher by Peggy Vincent

Do you have any must-reads that I should add to my list for 2017?

That is so fantastic that you track all your books! I tried doing that at the start of 2016, but didn't quite manage. I have a tendency to abandon books that aren't grabbing me right away, so I don't write them down until I finish them, and I often forgot! Do you have any tips on how you track?
