For me, 2016 was a good year for books. I read a lot, although I was shy of reaching my goal. If we're not friends on Goodreads, look me up! I love to see what everyone is reading or what they thought about books I also read.
Earlier this month Goodreads gave me a fun little synopsis of the books I'd read.
I still love this book. It had everything I love in a good story. There was suspense, mystery, love, sadness, elephants, a little spirituality.... this was a perfect starter Picoult book for me.
Anyone who has read or listened to this knows how great it is. I listened to it driving home from Mom's one weekend and although it resonated with me, I want a paper version so I can annotate and highlight - it was that good.
This book was a favorite because it was real... and funny. Unlike Yes, Please this book actually had me laughing and agreeing with the author from start to finish. I'm a bit picky on comedienne books because I feel like a lot of the humor and relatability gets lost in the delivery (i.e book) but Tina's sense of humor shines through.
I fell for this book as soon as I started reading it. I received it from Blogging for Books and the cover and synopsis alone were enough to pull me in. I'm so glad I picked it because it was a perfect read.
Jenny's books slayed. I preferred this to Let's Pretend This Never Happened but both were enjoyable. The Bloggess isn't a daily or even weekly read of mine but her books.... hysterical, relatable gold.
I chose this from Amazon firsts (or whatever its called) and absolutely loved it. The book was a sort of coming of age for both mother and daughter tied together by the sense of family and so much they thought they knew. It truly moved me and I look forward to reading more from this author.
This was another Amazon choice and I really enjoyed it. The book was mildly predictable but that doesn't stop me from enjoying something. I liked the sense of community and shared secrets that everyone had a part in, whether they knew it or not.
