I have just under 20 books to read in order to meet my 2017 reading goal of 50 books. It is almost September so I decided that hey maybe I should start considering a few books that I want to tackle.
Making a TBR list when I have over a 100 unread books on the bookshelf (overload) is a difficult task. Therefore I went through my books and picked out a few that I was excited to read. I didn’t want to make a static TBR for the next 4 months just in case I get an urge to read another book or I get my hands on another one I am excited for so I decided to choose 10 must-reads for my 2017 reading goal:
The Giver – Lois Lowry
Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
The Shining – Stephen King
Life of Pi – Yann Martel
Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom
The Time Traveller’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger
The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown
A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara
The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
Vengeance Road – Erin Bowman
Do you have any must-reads before the year is over? Let me know!
So many books.. so little time
My reading list for his month consists of :
- Finishing A Man Called Ove
- The Picture of Dorian Gray
- Whisky Words & a Shovel I
- Astrophysics for People in a Hurry
- It (This is going to take me a long time to read, therefore I’m going to squeeze it in every so often, but starting it this month)
SO, unbelievably we are halfway through 2017 already!
I gave up reading during highschool and through most on university because I “didn’t have time for it”. That was an excuse, you make time for the things you love in life. As of 2017, my new years resolution was to read about 12 books (one for each month, you know keeping it reasonable). March I was already on my 13th read, so I definitely had to aim higher.
My 2017 goal was changed to 50 books in one year.
As of July 6th, I have read 32 BOOKS. Evidently my goal is not only achievable, but I may also surpass it!
Not only have I committed to making reading and literature a huge part of my life, I have even opened up to blogging and bookstagramming in order to interact with other book lovers like myself.
