Everything I Read in 2016

Dear Reader, I should add to my New Years Resolutions a plan to keep up with my GoodReads account. Because this year, I read quite a few books, and I should probably organize them…somehow. I read 34 books this year, which is WAY UP from the 7 I read in 2015, and that’s something to be proud of. I don’t have dates for when I read these books, but I started reading this year around April, and read pretty consistently after that. So let’s get into it:
