Schatje's "Best Books Read in 2016" List

Today is the last day of 2016, so I’m presenting my list of the Best Books Read in 2016.  Please note that these were not necessarily published in the year – they made it off my “To Read” pile in the calendar year.

In total, I managed to read 75 books.  I’ve chosen my top 20 reads, organizing them into four categories:  Best Canadian Fiction, Best Fiction from the United Kingdom, Best American Fiction, and Best Novels Read in Translation.  Within each category, the books are not ranked.
