What I’m Reading (Part Deux)

belle would be proud.

For me reading is one of those things that I never get tired of. I still love walking into my library or a local bookstore and browsing the rows for something that speaks to me. But as you can imagine, there are a lot of titles out there and it can be a bit overwhelming. I’m constantly looking for  new recommendations to narrow my search; so much so that I have an ongoing note in my iPhone that I update anytime someone mentions something they’ve read and loved. Lets just say there are 59 books currently listed…

Since I feel like there are others out there who feel the search for a new book can be a bit overwhelming I wanted to put together a list of what I’ve read this year and recommend. I’ve also listed some titles that I’m looking forward to reading in the remainder of 2016. There is quite a range of titles so pick up your feet, grab a cup of hot coffee, and dive in! (Note: my top five novels are highlighted with asterisks for easy searching).
