Favorite Books in the Last Year

I'm posting an early list of favorite books for 2016 because things get busy over here as the year comes to a close and my memory gets holier than the Pope!

I read a lot. If I'm not writing, I'm reading or I'm thinking about reading. As I say in an old bio, I live inside my head a good deal of my waking hours. Especially in the rainy months in Seattle, which is about 9 months out of the year. In the last year I finished almost 70 books. I started about as many and couldn't continue for various reasons.
If you are a writer about to ask me to read and review, I don't do horror, graphic torture, blood, animal cruelty, YA, Inspirational, Non-Fiction, or most Contemporary Romance. My interest is in Suspense, Thriller, Mysteries, Historicals, and Supernatural.
I don't agree to read most of what is sent to me, FYI because so much is sent.
