Hi my fellow adventurers! It’s almost the near year. I was originally going to go back and do this week’s Top Ten Tuesday (Best Books of 2016), but I saw a number of people participating in Jaime from Perpetual Page Turner’s end of year survey, so I thought I’d join in. Because I didn’t read as many books as I was hoping and because I noticed a lot of my answers were repeating books, I thought I’d do some of the questions.
