  1. Here is my list of my favourite books for 2016. Only one classic made it into the list. The absolutely best was a non-fiction: The Sleepwalkers – How Europe Went to Was in 1914 by Christopher Clark. Will definitely be a classic on the subject. Here is the whole list: http://thecontentreader.blogspot.be/2017/01/best-books-read-in-2016.html
    I see that you all read some interesting classics. I read more than usual, and according to my statistics I read 14% classics! I hope to achieve more or less the same for 2017!


  2. I’m a little late for this discussion, but I reread Crime and Punishment and loved it even more the second time around. Also loved The Sympathizer, The Orphan Master’s Son, and Mary Oliver’s essays Upstream. And over the summer I reread Swann’s Way: now I just have to read the rest of Proust’s long, long, long novel….


  3. I cannot say enough good things about J.B. Priestley’s “Benighted.” It was mind-bogglingly good. My second favorite was probably “Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio.” I’d meant to read that for years, and it was even more entertaining than I could have expected.


    • I also loved ‘Voyage in the Dark’ and ‘Bonjour Tristesse’, although I did not read them last year. ‘The Go-Between’ I have heard so much about, and will read it this year. It is on my TBR shelves and just waiting.
