Favorites of a Decade: the 2010s

With the beginning of this new decade, I want to take a moment and look back at my last decade of reading. I went through my notebooks and lists, and found one book that was a favorite for me for each year of the decade 2010-2019. Each of these books touched me in some special way and brought much joy to my life. I loved this decade of varied and wonderful reading and look forward to what this new decade will bring into my reading life!

    I read Dandelion Wine in junior high school. Probably 7th grade. I remember that I loved it and have a copy on my shelf to reread some day. Thanks for the reminder, Robin. I think I’ll move it to my nightstand!
