2016 Wrap Up

Hi guys! Since it’s the start of a new year I wanted to do a general 2016 wrap up post, to tie up loose ends before completely diving into 2017. At first I wasn’t sure what to do, because I had a lot of ideas and not enough time to make each of them a post. I decided to combine it into one post, talking about the books I read, my favorite reads, and non-review posts in December. That way I don’t realize in the middle of February that I never wrote a 2016 favorites post. 😉

This will be a fairly long post, so get comfy and let’s get started!
