Reading Recommendations for the New Year

Happy New Year! 

Hope 2013 is off to a good start for all of you! It seems everyone is blogging about goals and resolutions for the new year, and I have some of those (somewhere, if I can remember where I put them...), but I also put together a list of some of my favorite reads and thought now would be a good time to share them. After all, I love when I discover a book off my radar, or a new author, so what better way to start the new year than to share the list with all of you. Book sharing = fun times!
