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.
