Read in 2016

I like to keep a running list of the books I read throughout the year, along with links to reviews (if I’ve written one) and a simple star-rating. Last year I read 58 books, this year I’d like to make it to 60! For more regular updates on my reading progress throughout the year, do feel free to follow me or add me as a friend on Goodreads.
