‘Tis the season to be reading! The weather has been uncharacteristically warm for November in Michigan, but I have been loving it. I’ve been able to actually enjoy the fall instead of rushing through it like I usually do this time of year. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t still been loading up on Hallmark Christmas movies during the week…Although it’s been a gorgeous fall, when the sun sets at 4:45 P.M. it’s time to trade in our Friday night dancing shoes for a pile of great books. My reading taste changes constantly and I seem to always be reading multiple books simultaneously so that I don’t miss anything! My favorites list is composed of fiction and non-fiction best sellers that I have read and others that are on my “must read” list. Each one of these books has something different to offer depending on your mood, interest level, or amount of free time. Make sure to also check out goodreads for more titles and reviews. Happy reading!
