Since I haven't completed anything yet in 2017--although I am always in the middle of at least one Austen book--I thought I would list some of my favorite reads from 2016. I will refrain from including all five Jane Austen novels that I listened to on Audible as I worked this summer. Just know that anything by Jane is an automatic favorite each and every year.
While I read many others, these were the 10 books (12 if you count all three Selection books) that either I enjoyed the most or made a major impression in some way or another.
I'm setting some reading goals for 2017--the first of which is to make a dent in this stack of books on my bedside table before I order more. That may be the most difficult one of all to keep! My main goal is to read three books a month for a total of 36 books this year. I will record my progress on my reading blog. It will mostly be a mixture of YA and adult fiction with a few professional books thrown in as well. I'm looking forward to a year of reading. I can't wait to get started, so I think that I won't; I'm going to start my first book of the new year, The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan, right now. Happy Reading!
