2017 Reading List

Alright, I know it’s February already…cut me some slack, I’ve been busy! Anyway, I finally got my act together and compiled my list of books read in 2017.  Total: 76.  That’s down a bit from previous years, and I blame 3 children under 5 years old 🙂  As always, I’ve ranked my top ten first, then the rest in no particular order.  I’ll be posting the top ten on Twitter as well with a little one sentence review.
