January 2016 Favorites

January Favorites

I know that all during January I highlighted my favorite products in my “Best of 2015” series, but this video is all about my favorites from the first month of 2016. I guess I was feeling a bit nostalgic, because there are a few old favorites that popped up for a second (or third) time, as well as a whole bunch of new loves.

My love of reading is no secret, and I definitely have a preference to the type of books I read. I prefer to read books in a series, because I really like to get to know the characters and “spend” a lot of time with them. I also like to read mysteries more than any other genre, although if I can combine some sort of paranormal feature with a mystery, then I’m in heaven! Here are my favorite books from 2015:
