Top Ten: My Favorite Books that I Read in 2016


This year, I read 62 books. Yes, SIXTY-TWO.

I honestly don’t know how I did that. Some of them were easy reads, but I guess I must be more of a speed reader than I thought? Or maybe I need to have a few more kids because obviously I have too much time on my hands. No, but seriously…62 books is a lot!

I wanted to compile my top ten from the year, but you can head to each of the blog posts and read my monthly reviews!


My TOP TEN are……

10. Anchored

9. Falling Free

8. Firefly Lane

7. The Meaning of Marriage

6. The Husband’s Secret

5. The Language of Flowers

4. Hope

3. Baby Catcher

2. Faith to Foster


  1. The Nesting Place

I would highly recommend that you get your hands on each of these books if you have not already! Obviously, some of them have very specific audiences, but I think that anyone would enjoy them!

I will continue to do my book reviews in 2017, so stay tuned for January! I have a long list of books that I would like to read, but I’m always open for suggestions! Please send them my way!
