Hi everyone! Long time, no chat. I took a prolonged break from blogging and a half-assed break from bookstagram, just because I wanted to take a step back and appreciate the holidays with my family. And good lord, I am so glad I did. Absence does make the heart grow fonder, because I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of purpose: new year, new-found motivation, and new resolutions of course!
Since everyone loves lists (and if you don’t, please message me all the reasons why – in list format) AND since I have been gone from my blog for almost two weeks, I missed the standard “Here is My Top Ten Books of 2016!” post that was sweeping the book blogging universe. I think before I even begin to close the chapter on 2016 and look forward to 2017, I simply HAVE to list my top 10 reads of 2016.
