Favorites from 2016

When it comes to reading in 2016, I will be blunt and state the truth, I sucked. After changing my Goodreads goal halfway through the year to 72, I still only read 71 books. (<- This is extremely low considering I read 100 last year.) Blame it on Heartland being on Netflix, or blame it on my reading mood... Either way, I struggled. I DNF'd a few, took weeks to get through others... However, I did come across some really fabulous reads this year. Check out my list below and feel free to comment with any questions!
