30 Books You Should Read in 2016

I’m happy to report that my bookshelf is looking a little more spacious these days as I plow through my books. I’ve replaced them with some new books to read in 2016. I normally don’t keep books after I read them unless it’s one I’m obsessed with like The Bronze Horseman trilogy. I could never bring myself to part with them!

30 Books You Should Read in 2016

I’ve teamed up with my friend, Dear Crissy, to feature our annual book recommendations. We’ve each selected 15 books to compile a list of 30 books you should read in 2016. If you’re curious, my book picks are the odd numbers and Crissy’s are the even numbers.
