Reading List of 2016

There is no denying that I love to read.

If I have to thank anyone for my love of reading it would be my dad and my sister.

There was never a moment when they didn’t have a book in their hand.

As a kid I read, but it wasn’t until after the birth of my kids, that I truly fell in love with reading again.

Ever year I set a reading goal, and this year was no exception.

It’s a mixture of everything! From Young Adult, to New Adult, to Non Fiction to Contemporary.

Some books were crap, and were well forgettable.  Others well I couldn’t put down, they were SENSATIONAL! Yep that good.

I especially enjoyed the Mister Series.  If you love sexy/hot romance with suspense, then you’ll love this series.

The Once series, while considered a ‘kids’ series I found exceptional.  Quite moving, and definitely a series I would recommend any young reader from Grade/Years 4-7 (Ages 9-13)

It was also nice to revisit a book series that I have read before, which was Twilight.  2017 will see me reading Breaking Dawn.  I would have finished it this year, but I HAD to finish the Mister series.

My 2017 reading goal has been set yet, as I honestly can’t think of a number.  I don’t want to get too ambitious.

One thing is for certain, there will be more series, and more re:reads, oh and definitely more from J.A Huss.
