My Favorite Books of 2016

Happy Tuesday, Reader Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Since the year is winding down, I figured I would do something different this Tuesday. Today I’m sharing My Favorite Books of 2016. Don’t make me rank them, I refuse! Instead I put them in a genre so there is some semblance of order. 😉

  1. I still need to read two of your four contemporaries but i completely agree with all the rest on your list! How did you narrow it down to 10??? I’m so impressed!

  2. Wow, great list! I wish I could say I’ve read them all, but do I get points for intentions. Pepper’s books are a given and I have all of them except her most recent. Very soon, though. I own both Lady/Lionheart and Together at the Table, but have yet to read them. I know with everything I am that I will love Joanne Bischof’s, but I’m thrilled to see Lodge’s book on a few “best of” lists. It’s officially become a “must read.” Thanks Toni.
