The Books I’ve Read

At the beginning of the year, I made a list of the 50 books I wanted to read this year – knowing that I’d probably deviate some. But to keep me accountable, I thought it might not be a bad idea to update my list.

I haven’t been doing a very good job. Lots of books up there to cross off!! I’ve been reading quite a few things not on the list because I found a list of 100 “page turners” (I couldn’t pin it, so I wrote them in my journal and now I can’t reference the link) and so I’ve been grabbing from that when I’m at the library. I should probably add THIS list to my journal so I have it to reference as well!

What have you been reading lately? Have you heard of the “Matched” series? One of my friends just recommended it but the waiting list at the library is LONG.
