Books Worth Reading



I decided to do a fun little list in place of the "new novel news" Monday because, while these may not be new, they are worth reading. They are in no particular order - in fact, if they are in "any" order it's due to the time that I read them since I went through my Goodreads list. Rather than add a ton more here, I've given you three words for each book/series.  You can read more of my thoughts in Goodreads about these books.


*Note that this list is ONLY derived from books I've read this year. Where series are concerned I've put down the whole series even if I only read the last book this year.
