2017 Reading List

As always, I set myself some reading goals. This year, I thought at the beginning of the year, that if I could just read 12 books this year, one a month, then I’d be happy. But January, February, March came and went without me reading ANYthing!
But then in April, I picked up Stephen King’s On Writing and re-read it and it both reminded me of how much I love to read and write but also, that if you want to write, you need to read.
And although I’m still very cautious about being too optimistic about being back into reading books at my normal pace, I have read 9 books in about 2 months and am hoping to be getting back in the swing of things!
