10 Books to Read in 2016

All right, it’s far past this time of year, but I forgot to copy the 2016 list over to LJ when I posted it on Facebook in January.

I read only eight of my 10 Books to Read in 2015, and the two I missed are moving to this year’s list. No rereads this year--I’ll have my review of LotR reread up in a while, I just finished it. The books on this list are all new to me.

1. The Second Sex by Simone De Beauvoir

2. The Beautiful Struggle: A Father, Two Sons, and an Unlikely Road to Manhood by Ta-Nehisi Coates

3. Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom by John O’Donohue

4. Learning to Walk in the Dark by Barbara Brown Taylor

5. Unclean: Meditations on Purity, Hospitality, and Mortality by Richard Beck

6. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

7. Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton

8. Helena by Evelyn Waugh

9. Lilith by George MacDonald

10. The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan
