60 Books of 2016

Ready for 2017!

Dear Readers,

As many of you know, I am an avid reader. I participated in the challenge #sixtybooks of 2016. I am excited to continue this challenge in 2017!

It was far more than just reading and keeping track of titles. #sixtybooks is a community of book lovers who discuss, exchange titles and all have a passion for reading. Thank you all for your recommendations, suggestions and honesty! I look forward to connecting in the upcoming year!

The first part of my blog consists of covers of the texts divided into general categories. 

The second part, is a compiled list (in the order that I read them).

Happy Reading!
