2015 Additions to Books I Want to Read but Probably Never Will

One of the reasons I launched Childressink.com was to share books that couldn’t fit in Girls’ Life. Space is so limited, and there are simply too many great books -- which is why I don’t write any negative reviews. Anything you see listed on this site is some of what I consider the best in new releases.


GL Finalists -- the books I narrowed down for each issue, the best of the best. Enjoy!
