I’m a bit late to the party on this post (blame my vacation travel, Disney, NYC, or the fact that I got sick), but I wanted to share my very favorite reads (and listens) from the past year.
First I must say that EVERY book I post about is a book that I’ve enjoyed. If I’m not liking a book, I don’t finish it; and if I don’t finish it, I don’t review it (though I will book blast a book I haven’t read – I generally say just that in the post). So, ALL the books I posted about this year are great books!
Here are the ones that stand out – that stay in my mind – that I recommend most often:
