A new year leads to a lot of hopeful resolutions that may or may not be fulfilled. I can not tell you how many lists I have created over the last week, optimistic that just maybe one of them will be completed in 365 days.
During one of my many hours skimming through Pinterest, I stumbled upon this thing called “bullet-journaling” that kind of caught my attention. This new trend takes all your to-do lists, lists of books to read, workouts to try, and anything else you can think of and puts them into a cute, trendy journal. As one who loves to write, doodle, create lists, this seemed right up my alley! Maybe I will start one of these in the near-future, but for now, I started a “Books to Read 2017” list that I figured I would write up here.
Being only a week into the new year, I am pretty proud to say I already finished my first book on my list. It was “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton, and I bet a lot of you probably read this one in middle or high school. Somehow I had missed that memo, and reading now made it even more worthwhile for me (I finished it in like three days). Seeing how much times have changed since the book was written is fascinating, and no wonder why so many people tend to really enjoy that book.
Anywho – while my reading list is definitely going to grow over the year, here is what I am starting January off with. Have you read any of these? Have any book suggestions that you think I should add? Be sure to write them in the comments below!
