In no particular order.
A Little Life — Hanya Yanagihara (9/10): Super depressing, but finishing it felt like I had actually accomplished something (but did I?).
California — Edan Lepucki (9/10): I will always read a good (or even middling) post/mid-apocalyptic story. This was a good one.
Station Eleven — Emily St. John Mandel (9.5/10): Similar to California, but I actually preferred this one.
Gut — Giulia Enders (9.5/10): If anyone ever wants to talk about poop and/or how your digestive tract is/is not working, I’m here for you. This book was basically written for me.
A God in Ruins — Kate Atkinson (9/10): I mean, Kate Atkinson, right!?
Missoula — Jon Krakauer (9/10): I mean, Jon Krakauer, right??
The Night Guest — Fiona McFarlane (9/10): Really surprised at how much I liked this one.
Bird Box — Josh Malerman (9.5/10): I don’t generally read “horror” novels, but this seemed like a good representative of the genre.
Honourable mentions: Why Not Me? — Mindy Kaling; Lock In — John Scalzi; The Girl on the Train — Paula Hawkins; Strangers at the Feast — Jennifer Vanderbes; Step Aside, Pops — Kate Beaton.
