2017 Reading Challenge

by - Friday, January 27, 2017

Hello All! I'm super excited to be sharing this challenge with you guys. Over the winter break I read a couple of books as I normally do when I'm on break from school. The sad thing about that is, that is normally the only chance I get to really read. Between work and family and general exhaustion, I don't usually get around to reading much. Well, I vowed to change that this year. And so far, so good.

Luckily, I had a change of positions at work that doesn't really require me to work as much at home anymore. That has helped a lot. I've also noticed that since I've been getting back into reading as avidly as I did as a teen, that I'm not as interested in binge watching t.v. anymore. BONUS!! haha

So, I went on Pinterest and found a challenge that suited me. One that would challenge me as a reader. I love the one that this blogger created and I think you will too! Without further ado, here is the challenge and the books that I'm really looking forward to reading this year.
