2017 Reading Challenge


When I started this blog in  February of 2017, I wanted a way to keep track of how many books I read this year. Sure, I’m big into making lists and the like (which I am keeping a physical list), but I wanted something digital as well. It seems that each January, Goodreads lets you choose how many books you’d like to attempt to read for the year and tracks your progress via percentage, as well as, letting you know if you’re behind or ahead of schedule with the books you have read. I set myself up for a lofty 50 books, which is just shy of 5 books a month. I can do that right? Even if I started reading at the very end of January and am “technically” behind, I’ve been able to keep a pretty steady pace.

Below are the books I’ve read so far in 2017 – this page will be updated each time I finish a new book. Links have been included in case you would like to purchase a book you see.
