my FAVORITE books of 2016.

This year I read and shared my thoughts on a big stack of books, but wanted to highlight my absolute FAVORITES as we head into the end of the year (and potentially for some Christmas shopping!)

[These aren’t all books that were necessarily released this year, just books I read this year.]

And friends, Amazon is doing a LOVELY book deal today. Today only (12/12/16) you can save $5 off $15 worth of printed books from Amazon (read the fine print here).  Just use the code: GIFTBOOK when you checkout!
