Books Read For Pleasure in 2017


Remember the year before last I started my quest to read 30 books a year? Although that is not really a lot, life seems to take over and I have not made it to the 30 yet. However, last year I did read 26 which was very close. I basically read anything and do not have a preference. Except romance novels are not really my thing so I try to stay away from them. Here are my list of books read last year. Have you read any of these?


1. Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight     One of my favorites. I've read it before.

5. Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit             Yes it is a children's book but I felt like reading it. Good book!
