Book Challenge 2017

I believe reading a book gives us a place to go when we have to stay where we are. 

This year I am challenging myself to read 15 books. Yes, I said 15 books that was not a typo. 

I have always been an avid reader but I have never read 15 books over a course of a year. By breaking it down its reading just over a book a month. It really doesn’t sound that hard when you think of it like that right? (Okay, yes it does lol)

Over the course of the year I will update this post with the books I have finished. I will also give the book a rating of 1-5 stars depending on how much I enjoyed it. 

I challenge you to try this and let me know down below your goal number! 


Two By Two-Nicholas Sparks    ★★★

15th Affair-Women’s Murder Mystery Club Series-James Patterson     ★★★★★ 


What She Knew– Gilly Macmillan     ★★★★

All The Missing Girls– Megan Miranda     ★★★★★

I could not put this book down!


The Women In Cabin 10… – Ruth Ware    ★★★

Everything, Everything- Nicola Yoon     ★★★

15 DogsAndre Alexis     ★★★  *Great read for dog/Greek mythology lovers

  2. I love your first sentence Shelby and never thought about reading in that way. I guess thinking about all the books I have read in my lifetime I must have travelled the world. lol

    I pledge to read 10 books this year (I have to save some time for my knitting). I have already read 3 since January 1st and am about to start number 4.
