It was another awesome year of reading for me. I feel like 2016 was the year I got my mojo back and 2017 was the year I soared. I am a mostly fiction reader and the books I read challenged me, made me laugh, made me cry and took my mind to periods and places I knew little about.
My book club that I started at my work completed its second year of books and more women are involved than ever. It has really brought our team together and I love it (I’ll be writing more about the club in the coming year).
I read 60 books, which surpassed my goal of 50 in a big way. With having a full-time job, a book manuscript due and a family, this number demonstrates that anyone can make time to do something, if they love it. I firmly believe I am a happier person when I am reading, and prioritized it many nights over chores. While my house suffered a bit, my emotional stability made it worth it – ha!
If you are someone who wants to read more, I encourage you to read this post on how busy moms can find time to read.
My Favorite Reads of 2017
Today, I am thrilled to share my top 10 books that I read in 2017. Yes, I should have published this list last week, but life was crazy and it didn’t happen. 🙂 The list is 70% fiction, 30% memoir, which is high on the memoir side given that probably 85% of the books I read this year were fiction.
Because I loved these books so much, I am going to do something I have never done before. I’m going to buy someone all ten books direct from Amazon. I am SO excited to bless someone with these books.
