Happy New Year! // 2017 Book List

Happy New Year, fellow readers and writers! What are some of your favorite books from last year? What books taught you the most? I didn't read as many books as I hoped to, but I still managed to find many favorites and read some previous treasured stories. I also searched out some new genres and authors this year. Another one of my goals was to read more of my Kindle books, and I think I achieved this one. While I love to hold books in my hand and stare at the beautiful covers, I also recognize that some books I'll buy on Kindle first to see if they are good--and then I buy the paperback. Well, there are several new paperbacks on my wishlist now. ;)

Hoping for another year of good reading finds and many more books to add to my bookshelves! How was your last year of reading?  


  1. I love seeing this list. And a super impressive count to juggle this year. What did you think of the Davis Bunn series? I liked Marc Royce as a hero. Oo, and you read Kristy Cambron! I love her stuff. I'm hoping to request her newest book for review, but I went too long between requesting one book and another, so I'm waiting for my account to be reactivated.

    1. I loved Marc Royce. The series was good. I love the first book the best. The second book took a turn in his life that I didn't quite like, but the third one ended it well, so I'm happy about it. I loved Kristy Cambron's books! Hoping to add them as paperbacks eventually, too. :) Thanks for stopping by. <3
