Most of my 2016 book list is here, which is accurate through June. I ended up not liking my July book and I couldn't find the Divergent series at our library (since when is teen fiction so hard to find??), so I went on with the list reading (or listening to)...
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card (I wrote all about that bad boy here!)
The Modern Scholar: Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas by Peter Kreeft
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
The Magnolia Story by Chip & Joanna Gaines
Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck
If you did the math, you've probably correctly identified that I am indeed short one book. I lost track of where I was on the list when life picked up (and, honestly, I got into a couple good TV shows on Netflix and Amazon, because, well, I'm human). Who knows, maybe I'll get ambitious and try to make it up for it in 2017 with a whopping 13 books. I know, right???
|Everyone does a book challenge around here. Monica's is more "have mom read the same book 12 times in 12 minutes"|
I am rereading at least one book this year, mainly because I know I like it and I want something light and funny and romantic to help me through the postpartum period. Best part about this book by Ree Drummond: it's a true story!
So here's what I'm thinking for this year so far...
January -On the Other Side of Fear: How I Found Peace by Hallie Lord
February - Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery
March - Travel Guide to Life by Anthony DeStefano
April - Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery
May - As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride by Cary Elwes
June - Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
July - Bossypants by Tina Fey
August - October - Divergent Series by Veronica Roth (probably).
Aaaand I think that's it so far. I need to go through and write down all of the recommendations I've received in one place so I can go through them. I want to be a little looser goose with my list so I have plenty of room to adjust with my mood and what books catch my eye, but at the same time keep myself away from "potato chip" novels the whole time.
**I will be chipping away at The Happiness Project as a resolution this year, but because of the format, I'm not going to count it as part of my #12in12. Unless I get way behind.
I'm by far not the first one to have a reading challenge as part of a yearly goal. I love looking for inspiration for my lists wherever I can find it. A couple of my favorites are:
Carrots for Michaelmas: all of the book lists
What are you reading this year? Anything I should include that I'm missing?
