Zach’s Best Of 2016

Below if my best of 2016:

I watched 117 movies in 2016. A new record beating 2011’s high of 111 movies. Here are my five favorite ones:
Sicario
Zootopia
The Jinx
Green Room
Rogue One

I watched 128 episodes of tv – the second lowest amount in the last 5 years. There were a lot of highly rated shows that I started but for some reason didn’t feel like continuing with like Stranger Things, Making A Murderer, Halt and Catch Fire, Westworld, Ash vs Evil Dead. These were the only shows that I highly recommend:
Silicon Valley
Night Of

I read 31 Books – the least amount in 5 years. I blame my decrease in reading on not riding the bus to work anymore and having a newborn baby. Here are my 5 favorite books:
Storygrid
Galveston
So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed
Deep Work
Gates of Fire
