2016 Reading Recap


I’m finally getting around to posting my list of books read in 2016. At the beginning of the year, I set a goal to read one book a month. I figured that I would meet that goal with no problem…and I did. I read a total of 35 books, so my goal for 2017 is 40 books! Most of the books I read were really good, but there were some that I trudged through because I hate to start a book and not finish it. Although, there were a few that I started that I just had to put down. The only one of these that I can remember off the top of my head was Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.
