Saturday SOOP: Hot 20 Book Ideas for 1/28/2017

Winter is upon us readers and writers! I do say that loosely, given the fact that it’s been no lower than 50 degrees Farenheight since December. That aside, it’s still the season to whip up some tea or soup and curl up with a good book. I’ve been revisiting a lot of old loves on my library shelf (read: Kindle) lately, like Soulless by Gail Carriger, of the Parasol Protectorate and Dragon Song by Anne McAffrey.. Tell us about your go-to favorite novel at the SOOP Kitchen. 

And now on to potential new favorites, the Hot 20 Book Ideas of January 28, 2017.
