For 2017 I set a goal to read 35 books. I’m happy to say I exceeded that number and finished off the year reading 37 books, equaling to 11,619 pages. This was the second year in a row I’ve set a reading challenge for myself and I love keeping track of the books I’ve read. I’m learning it’s OK to stop reading a book if it’s not for me so I’m pretty pleased with the quality of books that made this list. At the bottom of the post I will give you my top 5 favorites.
