#12in12 Book Challenge

One of my new year's resolutions for 2015 was to make more time to read. I set for myself the tangible goal of reading 12 books in 12 months. It may not seem like a lot, especially to the heavy readers out there, but given I haven't completed a book on my own since 2008 (give or take) makes this a pretty big feat for me.

I made a list at the beginning of the year of the books I wanted to read, mixing difficulty levels and genres, but as soon as I got wrapped up in the Maze Runner books and I was gifted The Miner's Lady, the list went out the window. Well, that and I lost it.

So far I have read:

January - Angels (And Demons) by Peter Kreeft

February - The Maze Runner by James Dasher
March - The Scorch Trials by James Dasher
April - The Death Cure by James Dashner
May - The Miner's Lady by Tracie Peterson

June - Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
July - The Artist's Daughter by Alexandra Kuykendall (in progress)

I also started How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age, but I wasn't sure if it should count as reading because we have it as an audiobook. Also, I just received my copy of Bébé Day By Day: 100 Keys to French Parenting, but that doesn't really seem like a read-from-cover-to-cover book as much as a reference book. Quick poll: should these two count?

What are some of your favorite books? Any recommendations for the rest of the year?

Have a great week everyone!


  1. I've heard those BeBe books are awesome. My recommendation: Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. Great book!

    1. Thanks Maria! I'll definitely check it out. :)
