I haven't yet published a best of 2016 list; I'm ever hopeful that I will read a contender for the list right up until the ball drops on the year (or at least until my eyelids close, whatever time that might be). So now that it is officially 2017, I can pull together my 2016 list without fear of leaving something off. Drum roll please...
