I put a call out to my followers on Instagram the other day for their favorite fiction books.  I’ve been reading a lot of non-fiction lately and just want a good book or two that I can get lost in – good story line, great character development, etc.  I said I have no preferences for genre…any and all recommendations are welcome!

And boy did people deliver (THANK YOU)!  I got so many great recommendations that there was no way I couldn’t share the list via a dedicated blog post.  So if you’re like me and just looking for a good book, I think you’ll find at least one below.  Happy reading!
