When I wrote 2017's Top 5 Romances to Read When You Need To Believe In Love Again last December, I was coming off the worst year of my life. I'd been diagnosed with ADD which sent me spiraling without the constant noise and distraction in my head. My mom's cancer spread from her breasts, lungs, and bones, to her brain, and she'd lost full mobility twice. Add to it all spine and jaw problems, the mortgage issues that were on year five, I was ready for the year to end. And so grateful for the books that had gotten me through the worst twelve months of my life.
I started 2018 optimistic. My ADD was under control. Mom was kicking butt. The chiropractor got my jaw and spine re-aligned. Our mortgage was settled. Things were finally freaking looking up.
