BEST NOVELS AND NOVELLAS of 2016

I read 71 books in 2016, a great many of them were 2016 releases. Many of those 2016 stories were fantastic. I also squeezed in a few these first couple weeks of January. Making my Top 10 was hard as hell, so I’m putting up my Top 20 2016 novels and my Top 10 2016 novellas.

Let’s get to it.
