After wading through my reading highs and lows, these 10 titles floated to the top. A weirdly eclectic mix, I gotta say, a byproduct of my reading co-challenge. Just for fun, I included my star ratings. *Note that I’m not the most generous 5-star giver, but three books this year captured my heart. I bumped two others up the list due to their powerful storytelling. Excited to see everyone’s lists today!
