p1070562Some bloggers post a list of books that they read for the year. I’ve done a top ten, but this year here is my entire list – with a link if I reviewed or interacted with the book. One book is left off the list for a reason I won’t disclose. And when typing this out, I discovered that I’d accidentally recorded one book twice. Oh no, dropping my number of books by one! Whether I write a review really has nothing to do with how much I appreciated a book. Sometimes I consider a book exceptional but don’t review it for one reason or another. (Laziness is a reason!) A couple of these books, I still plan to review…
