Did you set any new year’s resolutions? I didn’t (personally at least), but if you’re trying to read more this year, I can help! I love to read and I’m not picky about genre (except horror, keep that mess away from me), so today I’m sharing a bit of the best fiction of 2017!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas!! We’re travelling through North Carolina right now, and it has been so much fun to see our families.

Thank goodness for Goodreads where I can keep track of what I read, otherwise these annual lists… Read More Best reads of 2016: nonfiction
