My 10 favourite books of 2016

books

Reading is a great passion of mine, and I spend nights reading (or doing a crossword). I generally make a trip to BMV, or browse on Amazon, every week or two to sink my teeth in an Agatha Christie mystery, an economics book or a historical account on World War II.

I don’t know for sure, but I have probably read about 35 books this year.

Here are my 10 favourite works of fiction that I have read this year (in no particular order):

“Pnin” – Vladimir Nabokov

“Invitation to a Beheading” – Vladimir Nabokov

“Red Harvest” – Raymond Chandler

“Nightmare Town” – Dashiell Hammett

“The Portrait of a Lady” – Henry James

“The Maltese Falcon” – Dashiell Hammett

“The Secret Adversary”  – Agatha Christie

“The Clocks” – Agatha Christie

“The Talented Mr. Ripley” – Agatha Christie

“Animal Farm” – George Orwell

Honourable Mentions:

“Peril at End House” – Agatha Christie
