Best Books of the Year

I have read a little more than 130 books this year and I really wanted to put this post together to share what I consider my top books of the year. I will have a post coming up soon where I share my best, worst, surprising etc but today I really wanted to share my love of these books with you. My goal was to come up with a list of 20 but I actually came up with 30. So I went back through and picked my top 20 of the 30. I then attempted to rank the twenty but that was impossible for me, so they will be in no particular order. I do have a favorite book but that will be in the post I was referring to earlier.
