- Shrill by Lindy West, published in May 2016. Also written from a heart. I tend to be prissy, and there are some hard to read parts because I hesitate to lay it all out in the open like she writes. Overall, think of her like a Joan of Ark for all girls with a sense of humor. I laughed and cried. For all girls out there, never hesitate to be who you are.
- Eligible by Curtis Sittenfield, published in April 2016. I also finally listened to Pride and Prejudice this year on books on tape, and heard this book - it's light, funny and clever.
- When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi, published in January 2016. When a person writes from his heart, especially if that's his last writing, you can't help to read with open mind. I couldn't help it either.
- Shoe Dog by Phil Knight, published in April 2016. I actually read this in January 2017. I listen to this running by the waterfront of Charleston, South Carolina. I run and I live in Oregon, so this book was interesting to me.
- Before the Fall by Noah Hamley published in May 2016. Summer read for suspense lovers.
- Bonus - Razor Girl by Carl Hiaasen, published in September 2016. It's regular Hiaasen, wacky funny. Can't stop.
