12 Books I’m reading in 2017

I’ve been perusing my Goodreads account and I’ve decided I’m going to stop neglecting books I’ve been wanting to read for a while.  I read plenty of great books in 2016 and my goal for this year is to read 52 books.  I’m almost finished with one or two already which is a good start.  Lucky for me, I realized quickly that there are exactly 12 books I’m reading in 2017 on this list and that seems totally doable- one book from this list once a month.  I can totally do that!

I'm reading one of these books every month of the year until I'm finished. Such a great list!! Pin now, read later. | via The Spirited Violet

COMING OUT IN FILM IN 2017

HAVE TO READ

I like books from a lot of genres, but easily find myself reading fantasy and fairy tale books already.  I love making goals like this though to push myself to fill in the gaps with other genres.  I’m looking forward to reading these books!

Any book recommendations you have for me?

    I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Chip and Joannna’s book for ages now, I’ve also heard Big Magic is pretty life changing.

  • The gift of fear is hands down one of the best and most practical books I have ever read. Gavin DeBecker is a godsend.

  • Guernsey will make you feel so happy! It’s just a sweet read. Also, “Wrinkle in Time” is my favorite childhood series. <3 My absolute favorite book from it is actually "A Swiftly Tilting Planet"–I re-read it every few years. This is a great list, I hope you enjoy!

    • Okay, now I want to read Guernsey ASAP. So many good things are being said about it! I love that you also love the Wrinkle in Time Series. I always wait until I can’t remember the book and then I pick them up and read them again!
