2016 – A year in Books!

Hi There,

How are we all? I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year!

I thought that I would do my usual new year post and list the books that I read throughout 2016!

At the beginning of 2016 I went to www.goodreads.com and took part in their reading challenge. This is where you set a reading goal for yourself as to how many books you would like to read throughout the year.

I set a goal of 40 books and ended up reading 42! So here is a list of the books I read and their genre, as well as a rating out of 5!
