Women & Wine’s 5 Favorite Books of 2016

Each year at this time, we look back at all the books (published in the year) that we read and try to pick our favorite books. This year was an exceptional year for new books and among the group at Women & Wine there were many books that people championed but did not make our top 5. The upcoming holidays are a great time to sit, or for those who read on a treadmill walk or those who prefer to listen on audible books to experience a great book that takes you to a different place or time.

1. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. This book won the National Book Award and tells the story of a young slaves incredible journey for freedom from their Georgia plantation via the Underground Railroad.

2. The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney. This book tells the story of four adult siblings through the fate of their shared inheritance. It is funny, sometimes looks hard at the each of the siblings faults and trials but is essentially a rewarding warm story.

3. Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler. We fell in love with the fictional story of 22 year old woman’s who leaves a small town to move to New York City to work in a low level job in one of best restaurant’s in the city. This book brought us back to our youth and gives us a bird eye’s view of the inner workings of chic, fine demanding restaurant. Our heroine’s tale is a hip, energetic, witty contemporary coming of age story. It is impossible to put down, once you start reading it.

4. Before The Fall by Noah Hawley. Hands down our favorite character driven page turner of the year. It tells the story of a struggling artist who accepts a ride on a private jet and whose life is literally turned upside down. The novel insightful look at family, ambition, loyalty and chance makes this a memorable book.

5. Man At The Helm by Nina Stibbe. This book set in a small English village tells a funny, wonderful straight forward account of her mother’s divorce and romantic encounters during the early 1970’s from a young girl’s perspective. It has an odd almost hard tinged fairy tale aspect that left us delighted and laughing.
