This is my list, in no particular order. As I look back over these titles and reviews I am reminded once again how very blessed I am that I get to read so many wonderful books, by so many amazing authors. Each of these books touched my life this year and I am looking forward to reading new books in 2017.

Thank you, my dear author friends for sharing your babies with me.

Happy New Year!

I'll have to check. I just know that you have been an amazing blessing in my life. And to think our friendship started when I read A Passion Most Pure. I needed that book at that time and God knew it and he not only provided a great author he gave me a great friend! Hugs and Happy New Year, Julie!

Thanks so much, Andie! :-)
