What I read in 2016

Yes, I’m a month late doing the year-end wrap-up things, but I was way too busy in early January so didn’t have time to do them then.  And I like doing the annual summaries, so even though they’re late, I’m going to post them anyway.

I didn’t do a lot of reading last year (well, actually I did, but it was mostly in the form of academic journal articles, not books), and most of my “reading” was actually listening to audiobooks while walking to and from work.  So it’s the shortest list since I first starting recording my reading.

 Total = 92 books

    • From memory (it’s a while since I read it!) it was quite good – there’s some interesting ideas explored (though, like most YA dystopic science fiction, there were a few bits that made me go “nah, humans don’t work like that”), and it was definitely better than most of the Hunger Games clones that have popped up in the last few years. There’s a lot of violence, though, which I found a bit uncomfortable sometimes (possibly more so because I was listening to it on audiobook – it might not have been as disturbing if I’d been reading it).
