Beauties!! I have reached my goal of reading 15 books and it’s only halfway through the year! I am super proud and will be continuing reading throughout the rest of the year.
Below are the books I have read so far and my rating of each one. Definitely check them out and feel free to leave me recommendations down below!
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!
