One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to read one book a week. Seems like a daunting task right? Especially if you don’t read. Well, it is but I have been doing well the first half of the year! Granted, there are some weeks when I hardly read at all and have to make it up by reading two (or, three) books the following week. But for the most part I am able to read a book a week more or less.
That said, I have compiled quite a list over that past few months. I was going wait until the end of the year to share every single one that I read, but I figured this would be better. No sense in wasting all these good books. Plus, you’ll a giant reading list for the rest of the summer! Enjoy!
