Thanks to my 30-minute train commute each way and my lazy, lazy ass, I read 48 books in 2016.
The longest book I read was Ron Chernow’s Alexander Hamilton. It was a nice cherry on top of my Hamilton-fixation sundae last year.
I rated 8 books as five-star books:
- Kitchens of the Great Midwest
- Hamilton: The Revolution
- Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History
- Sally Ride: America’s First Woman in Space
- The Broken Kingdoms (Inheritance, #2)
- Love Walked In
- Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person
- The Light of the World
A whopping THIRTY of those 2016 books were written by female authors. This isn’t something I initially aimed to do in January of last year, but once I started seeing the trend, I tried to continue it as best I can. I’m pretty proud of that.
I’m learning about new books via the All the Books podcast from Book Riot.
My goal this year is to read 50 books, which seems ridiculously high to me.
All of my reviews are on Goodreads, and if you’re a more visual person, I’m kimberussell on Litsy!
