// What's five of your least favorite books from 2016?
June Bug by Chris Fabry — This was an enjoyable book and I was enjoying the story, but something happened at the end that I didn’t like. It’s kind of a bittersweet book to me.
Deny by Tricia Mingerink — This is the second book in a series. I did enjoy the series, but there was some violence throughout this series and I felt that this book just had a bit too much for me.
A Memory Between Us by Sarah Sundin — This book was okay, but there was a couple things that I just didn’t like.
The Princess Club by Catherine Marshall (adapted by C. Archer) — I really enjoyed the 12 book Christy series, but this one was a little boring in my opinion.
Christy Miller volume 1 by Robin Jones Gunn. This collection has the first three Christy Miller books in it. I really didn't care for the first two books, but by the third they were okay. I kept reading the series and now I like them quite a bit.
I discovered Sarah Sundin and Robin Jones Gunn. I really enjoy both authors works, and I can’t wait to read more from them in the coming year.

Christy Miller volume 2 by Robin Jones Gunn. This book has books 4-6 of the Christy Miller books, but it's the longest I read. It has 496 pages.

I’m going to try and read 100 books in 2017, since I didn’t this past year.
