What I’ve Been Reading–2016 In Review

Friday, December 23, 2016


In 2015, I set a reading goal of 25 books and I read 46. This year, my goal was to read 30 books and I read 44 (subject to edit if I finish more before the end of the year!) As I did last year, here is the list of the books I finished this year, and the links back to my review of each. I think I read some good ones and I’d love to know if you read any of the same ones I did. Also, I’d love any recommendations of books to read next year!
