a year of reading...

I gave myself a goal this year that is a pretty big leap for me! I absolutely love reading, but I found that I just don't read all that much. So this year, I've challenged myself to read 50 books this year... I know! I don't know what I was thinking but holy crap, I hope I do a decent job. I have a feeling like I'm going to end up reading like... five. But we'll see how I do! So here's my list...

Most of these books I already have on my Kindle which is super handy. It'll be great because I can continue my challenge while I'm living in England for four months. The others, I either own or are at my local library. I've also added a GoodReads widget on the side of my page so you guys can see which one I'm on! I'll try to keep this post updated too and cross off each book as I've read them.
