Re: 2016 Yearly Goal

I use goodreads to keep track, but would love to join you!

My goal is 40, 10 of which must be non-fiction/classics:

Read so far:

1. a girly romance whose title escapes me
2. The New Me - still not sure how I feel it's so good.
3. A Shade of Vampire- YA novel, but now I want to know what happens next in the series

MsSissy, did you read the Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty?
We read both for book club and liked the second one even more.

Yay! So glad this was started again this year. I started it the past 3 years (I think) but having a newborn makes it difficult to read. So my goal is low maybe 10 for now.

4. cleopatra - h.r. haggard - one of my "classics" for this year. It was a good story, but not very historical.
5. our lady and the church- by hugo rahner- really enjoyed it 9in an academic sort of way)
6. the lycan society- weak plot and story, not proofread at all. (i read the kindle version)
