Books I’ve Read: 2017

I love to read when I’m not busy studying or watching something on Netflix. My New Year’s resolution is to try and read at least 3 books a month. Below is a list of books I’ve read over the course of 2017 (and a few from the end of 2016) starting from January to December. There are also some books at the end of the post that I did not record a month for. I’ve bolded my favorites and recommend that you add them to your reading list! I hope you enjoy this post and have a wonderful New Year as you head into 2018 on your happy and healthy adventure. ūüôā ‚̧
