I usually have a goal of reading 52 books a year – a book a week. Most years I have accomplished that goal and have even surpassed it a few times. However, there were also many years when my children were very little that I did not reach that goal, despite my love for reading.
This year, the year where all the children have slept through the night and the master’s degree has been completed, I have read more than 100 books. Just by reading about every night before bed, with my older children, during road trips and on relaxing Sunday afternoons, I doubled my goal.
Not every book was good. In fact, I came across several that seemed to have been published too quickly and needed more editing. I won’t mention them by name here, but I do note that in my reviews. (For a list of books I’ve reviewed, visit the complete list here.)
I came across several wonderful books, too. Here are my 25 top reads from 2016 (links will take you to the book review post:
