Favorite Reads of 2016 (So Far)

The reason that I labeled this post "My Favorite Reads of 2016 (So Far)" is because due to unforeseen circumstances I lost a couple of months reading time in 2016, and there are some books published in 2016 that I know I would have put on this list if the year hadn't run out before I read them.  I think that this year is going to require an addendum sometime early in 2017, after I've managed to read those 2016 books that got caught in the year-end crunch.  However, I did enjoy a great reading year with the books I did read.  So, here are sixteen books from 2016 that I absolutely loved from beginning to end, heavy with series' books, but some spectacular stand-alones, too.
