These year I read - or at least remember reading – 29 books. Which averages over half a book a week. Pretty good!! Considering Andy Andrews, my Best New Mentor from 2 years ago, said that a person should read a least one book a week.
don't read with that level of consistency on a day-to-day basis, unless
it's an intellectual book where I'm learning self-discovery, then I can
dabble here and there. But if it's a novel, I binge. Once I start, my
life ceases to exist as is, and I become consumed in the plot, rushing
through all my responsibilities of the day, so I can get back to that
book! So I read through entire books in mere days, and then I swing
back to another hobby for awhile.
Anyway, below are my author awards and top reads for the year!
Best Discovered Novelist: Francine Rivers. I read everything of hers this year!
Best New Mentor: Christiane Northrup
Best Writing: Morgan McCarthy. She puts together the most descriptive, and almost lyrical, sentences.
Below is my bookshelf of best reads in 2016:
(I also made a Best Reads for 2015 and Best Reads for 2014!)
