My 2016 was a great year for reading…but then, aren’t they all?
Despite a paucity of updates on this blog, my Montreal Reads project has continued unabated in the background with Ravenscrag, For Today I Am a Boy, Bone & Bread, and How to Make Love to a Negro without Getting Tired. And I carried on my comic book education this year with G. Willow Wilson‘s Ms. Marvel, the first volume of Bitch Planet, and the first volume of Moonshot (Moonshot, Vol. 2 is coming out in February and I can’t wait to read it!).
I’ve also been meandering my way through 3 excellent collections of short stories in French for the past few months: Je voudrais que quelqu’un m’attende quelque part, Odette Toulemonde et autres histoires, and Les aurores montréales.
But, without further ado, here are the books that really stood out for me this year. Two of these are books I copyedited for work, so they aren’t yet available to buy—they will be soon, though!
