January is the start of a new year, which brings new beginnings…and so many new books! I’ve challenged myself to read more books than last year and step outside of my comfort zone in the titles I choose to include; Everything from financial advice to literary fiction to health and wellness and beyond.

Here are a few that I am looking forward to reading in the coming months. Be prepared, we’ve got quite a mixed bag here, but I believe that 2016 will be the year that explores more genres than before. The bestsellers won’t just be literary fiction, but will include anything and everything in between. Get ready to read because we’ve got a lot of great titles ahead.
