New Year, New Romances, New Babies!
by Karen Green
There’s a reason the New Year’s avatar is symbolically that of a cartoon baby (hat and sash, optional): January ushers in all the excitement of renewed opportunity of the energy and potential of the young and unsullied. With the changing of the calendar comes, like new life, the impression that the cycle begins again and anything—everything—is possible.
You can start your reading year the same way: with books like these six for every reader, full of energy, excitement, romance and yes, lots of new babies.
