It is hot and sticky, and I am tired and need a break. So I’m about to head off on a short holiday. Play nicely while I’m away.
I’ll be back in a couple of weeks. By then we should be getting the last of the year’s big awards, so I’ll be compiling our analysis of the best novels of 2016 according to the various award juries and voters. And then we’ll be compiling our own list of what we think the best books of 2016 were. I’m already sure it’s going to be very different from what the awards throw up.
But what do you think should be on the list?
Take this opportunity while I’m away to fill the comments with your suggestions for what we should consider the best books of 2016.
