A someone who loves to read and loves to hear what others are reading, I share my list of books I spent time in this past year. I liked some books more than others (and some not so much), but the ones I particularly enjoyed I’ve highlighted. I reviewed a few in past blog posts, so you can check those out as well. I hope this helps you settle into a good book in 2016!
