2016 Books

2016 has been a bit of a year of change for us. I thought it would be nice to post about the books we've read for the year with a view to writing individual posts on the books over the coming weeks.

In 2016 we read:
  1. The Hourglass Factory - Lucy Ribchester
  2. Sense of an Ending - Julian Barnes
  3. The Humans - Matt Haig
  4. The Glorious Heresies - Lisa McInerney
  5. The Power - Naomi Alderman
NB: We added: Queen of the Desert by Georgina Howell to the list, but we haven't finished reading yet! Oops!

From book number 4 onwards we decided to slant towards feminist/ women's literature so we also individually picked out the following to read and share with each other:
  • Fear of Flying - Erica Jong
  • My Life on the Road - Gloria Steinem
  • The Paying Guests - Sarah Waters 
  • Negroland - Margot Jefferson
Incidentally, we picked the above from this blog post.

This reading challenge helped us pick books in 2016.
Looking forward to our 2017 reads!
