I am a reader.
It is one of my strongest identity statements. As a child, what I loved deep down in my child-heart was books, books, books, and the smell, stillness and grandeur of the local library. In an effort to return to things which bring me life and joy, I’m saying a strong YES to reading.
I’ve told you this is the first year I’ve ever made official New Year goals. Well, it’s also the first time I’ve ever made a book checklist. I am stoked about it. Last year as a new-ish blogger, I quickly connected with a fellow book-lover, Anne Bogel. She, along with others, gave me plenty of fodder to create a lengthy list of books I wanted to check out. I was up to about 50.
To kick off January, I narrowed down the books I HAD to read this year. Bloggers are excellent sources for book recommendations. People who are passionate about writing are passionate readers. And I would be remiss if I didn’t share my list too.
