Most unexpectedly enjoyable - The Lesser Bohemians by Eimear McBride

Most disappointing  - The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta (a bit unfair, perhaps as my disappointment was mostly due to the book being nothing like the series, which I loved)

Disliked most - Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh (all I can remember is that I found it a thoroughly unpleasant little book from beginning to end)

There was no overall favourite as I thoroughly enjoyed lots of my reading this year :)  If I had to pick just one book to keep and read again... no, can't do it, too hard!
