I don’t know about you but I’m still making my way through a lot of the best reads of 2016. I haven’t even conquered my big 9 reads from the fall! But, that’s no reason not to look to the winter months ahead and compile another great list, right?! Here are the 8 winter must reads grabbing my attention:
I’ll Take You there // This story is about the life of Felix and the trio of unforgettable women who change it. Wally Lamb pays a beautiful homage to women and the power and strength they hold.
Born a Crime // Trevor Noah’s unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show began with a criminal act: his birth. The eighteen personal essays collected here range from the hilarious to the deeply affecting.
The Underground Railroad // A New York Times bestseller, this novel shares the story of a young slave’s adventures as she makes her way toward freedom.
