Black Heart’s 2016 Year End Wrap-up

Whew! 2016 has been quite a year, right? This year will definitely go down in the record books as one of the most memorable. Through all the highs and lows, the one constant thing that has brought us joy this year is reading. Our love for reading has really helped us escape from all the real world problems and brought us closer to other readers like you. We read some really great books this year (and some not so great) and we wanted to share with you our Best of 2016 list. *Note: not all books listed were published in 2016.
