Hello friends! Hope you have had a nice weekend. Today I want to share some of the books I want to read this year! I will also try to update this list with mini reviews and new books I find that I want to read/have read throughout the year.
On our honeymoon I really got back into reading for fun. I had somehow forgotten how much I love getting sucked into a novel and losing
days hours of my life while I’m hooked. Since I had the reading bug, and also don’t have funds to buy 290194 new books to read, I decided to get a public library card. It is FREE, and I don’t think I’ve ever re-read a fiction book, so borrowing makes a lot more sense than owning for me. (Also, I’ve never been a big electronic reader… I just like the feel of a real paper book in my hands. Anyone else like that??) I’m so glad I got a card! Although the most popular new book may not always be in, browsing through books that you didn’t know existed is actually really fun. Going to the library every 3 weeks (when they are due back) has become a very fun routine for me. (Am I the oldest-lady 22 year old you’ve ever met?)
Anyway…. even though I love picking up random books, I also love searching for books beforehand and compiling a little “wishlist” of books I would love to read. I love reading other bloggers’ book reviews and perusing Good Reads. So, I thought, why not write about books I love or want to read?

- A Simplified Life
Review: I LOVED this book. It can be tricky for me to get through “self-help” kind of books/nonfiction sort of stuff, but I actually flew through this one. It had really practical advice and some really good simplifying strategies I hope to carry out in all areas of my life. This is one of the few books I actually own, and I’m sure I’ll reference it in the future a ton!
