All good things come to an end, right? 2017 has a been a year of growth (except for my waistline, that’s going down). In the next week, I’ll be making some big changes to Ginger & Co., and one of those changes is that I’ll be moving away from offering writing advice on the blog. You’ll still be able to find advice on social media and all the posts will still be here. But since I won’t be writing anymore (at least for the seeable future), I wanted to compile a “Best of” post. You’ll be able to reference all the best posts in one place. I still consider these posts to be a part of “Ginger & Books,” so without further ado, here’s the best of the books.
