Books and Films 2016

45 books, if you count Lagoon which got interrupted by Xmas and which I will finish later today. A good solid year with much rereading (asterisked) and backlist, including the Octavia E Butler reread. Highlights are the Jo Walton trilogy, Lucy Sussex short stories, Letters to Tiptree, Ancillary Mercy, Kindred and Fledgling. Similar number of books as last year (43).
