December was a crazy month with work events, the holidays and finally adding some much needed furnishings to my living room. Still, somehow, I think I read more in December than any other month in 2017.
I’ve really been pushing myself to read more in the past month. As work and other projects have gotten more time consuming I definitely let my bookshelf start to get dusty.
Reading has always been a huge part of me. I can remember getting super excited whenever the Scholastic book fair came into town, meaning an entire hour of the day would be spent browsing and reading new books. I still remember the first time I got my hands on a hardcopy of the first Harry Potter book, and how excited I was to come to own the entire series.
I’ve always been a bookworm, but as life starts to get in the way, it’s easy for reading to take fade into the background. Reading for leisure definitely wasn’t an option during college, when I had tons of required readings I could barely finish.
Between rebranding the blog, some major changes at work and taking on more side projects, I have not been reading nearly as much as I used to. I’ve set a goal to get through at least 20 books this year, and so far I’m off to a pretty slow start.
Instead of focusing so much on my goal number, I’m more interested in trying new authors and genres and actually enjoying reading, whenever I can. Here are some of the titles I’ll be making my way through in the new few weeks!
