Summer Reading Update

The year is half over and I'm making progress on my reading challenge!  My book club has introduced a variety of books this year that I wouldn't normally choose, so I've enjoyed exploring new genres and authors.  Audio books have been my lifesaver while running and traveling, and I love renting ebooks and audio books through the public library using the Overdrive app.  I'm making my list of Beach Reads for my vacation next month, and I'm also diving into a handful of pregnancy and parenting books as we get ready to welcome Baby Ross!

Here are some of my favorite books of 2016 so far...
