United States of Books Project Wrap-Up

Even though I joined the United States of Books project later than many of the others, I really enjoyed the camaraderie and sharing reviews of others on my blog.

I hope you take a look at the wide variety of books we reviewed in 2016.

Among the ones I personally read and reviewed, my favorite book from the project was Maud Martha by Gwendolyn Brooks (I gave it 5 stars).

My 4 star books from the project were:

Drown by Junot Díaz

The Betsy-Tacy Treasury by Maud Hart Lovelace

Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver

My 3 star books from the project were:

Independence Day by Richard Ford

The Awakening by Kate Chopin

Geek Love by Katherine Dunn

My 2 star books from the project were:

The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler

I would love to take part in another project like this.
