Books of 2016

Posted December 28, 2016

Welp, it appears I have fallen off the reading list since having two kids. I did manage to sneak 12 books in yet this past year, but with a bit more fiction than years past. Apparently as I’ve entered 30 I appreciate entertainment just as much (or more than) learning. :)
