What I’m Reading

What I'm Reading

I am a voracious reader. I love love books! My husband laughed when we got married because he wanted to know where we would be “storing” all of my books. I think I own like 500 books. I know, crazy right?! But I love them. They are like my kids. I haven’t been reading as much as I would like to lately. Since having kids it’s been harder and harder to steal some quiet moments to myself.

I’ll try and keep up my current reading list and share the books that I read. I like to read anything that has rich, wonderful characters and a great story. If you have suggestions based on my reading list please feel free to comment and share. I am always looking for something new to read. I made a goal in 2013 that I would read three books a month. I also made a goal on Goodreads to read 50 books this year. I am on Goodreads if you want to see all of the books I’ve read and have on my to-read list.

The following list of books I try to read once-a-year if not twice! It’s possible this list could change as I read more and more books. I’d love to know what books you are reading right now and hope you share your recommendations in the comments area of this page.
