My Top 10 Read’s of 2016

Below are my top 10 favorite reads of 2016. There were a lot of great books that didn’t make my “books of the year” for one reason or another. I also read a lot of BAD books. I always finish the books I don’t like because I want to know WHY I don’t like them, and if I ever write a book I want to be sure to not do THAT, whatever “that” is.

If you have any questions about a book or want a recommendation please leave a comment. And if you read any game-changing books in 2016 please share!
