New Year’s Book Recommendations

Over the past few months, as part of Lectito’s Book Blogger Q & A series, I caught up with twelve fellow book reviewers to chat about how they review and what they love to read. One of the questions I asked each reviewer is: What five books should everyone reading this add to their TBR pile?

With the new year upon us and 2016 reading lists to make, it seemed timely to revisit their recommendations, and boy, are there some great titles in the mix (and loads I haven’t read that look intriguing)! Here’s what my fellow reviewers had to say*:
