My Reading List (2016)

After a long hiatus I’m back posting on this blog. My apologies for the delay in replying to comments, and indeed for not commenting on your posts!

I thought it might be a good way to start the year by posting a list of all the books I read in 2016.

  1. So good to see you back! I hope all is well? I wasn’t familiar with any of the BOOKS on your list, but my husband (who actually HATES to read), of all people) read a book by Dan Simmons about Dickens and Drood. It is just called “Drood.” Glad to have you back. School going ok?

    1. Hi Calensariel, thank you so much for your kind words. It’s good to be back. I will have to look into Drood, as I loved reading Dickens’ novel! I’m also looking forward to reading and catching up on all your blogs over the next week or two! School is going well thanks. I’m now totally sick of the cold Ukrainian Winter, but I’m very happy with my little class, so that’s the main thing! 🙂
