I noticed that I’d set my reading goal at twelve books for 2016. And that’s exactly the number I read, according to my list. Goodreads has me at ten, but I think I forgot to date and review a couple.
Here’s the run-down of titles:
Flora’s Wish, Kathleen Y’Barbo, Historical Romance
Carlotta’s Legacy, Betty Owens, 1920s Historical Romance
Shadowed by Grace, Cara Putman, WWII Historical Romance
Love, Stock, and Barrel, Crystal Barnes, Historical Western Romance
Searching for Grace Kelly, Michael Callahan, Historical Women’s Fiction (mainstream)
Side by Side, Jana Kelley, Women’s Fiction
The Lazarus File, Donn Taylor, International Mystery/Crime/Espionage
Lie Catchers, Paul Bishop, Mystery/Crime/Police Procedural (mainstream)
Waking Beauty, Sarah E. Morin, Fantasy
Mind Writer, Lisa Gefrides and Mike Lynch, Spec-Fic/Sci-Fi
Storming, K.M. Weiland, Spec-Fic/Deisel Punk
The Call: Harbingers, Vol 1, Bill Myers, Spec-Fic, Supernatural
Among my favorites in this list are Flora’s Wish, Searching for Grace Kelly, and Mind Writer, but the 2016 winner has to be Waking Beauty. The story still occupies my mind as I sift through the allegory and symbolism. It’s an amazing book. I hope you include it on your 2017 list!
