In 2015, I had set a goal to read 20 books. I actually read 25.
In 2016, I set a goal to read 30 books and I actually read 38.
In 2017, my goal was to read 40 books and I actually read 41.
This year, my goal is to read 45 books, but I'd truly like to read 50.
In order to accomplish this goal, I am reading three books right now. One book is for my book club and I have it in my purse. It is a small paperback and I haven't read very much of it just yet. I actually started the second book last year but never finished it. It is called The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson. It is massive. Not an easy one to carry around, so it sits on my bedside table and I read it before falling asleep.
The third book I am about halfway through is an audiobook. I have a tendency to wake up SUPER early and sometimes having an audio book helps me fall back to sleep or at least stay in bed for a while in the early morning hours. The movie for this book recently premiered, it is called Red Sparrow by Jason Mathews. The movie features Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika Egorova the Russian intelligence officer, which is easy to picture in my mind. I had a little trouble getting into the book the first chapter, but at the end of each chapter there is a recipe for food that mentioned in the chapter, and I really like that. Also, Dominika can see auras around people, which helps her judge their character, which is pretty cool.
I've read 11 books so far this year, so I am about 4 books ahead of schedule. I'm hoping to finish Red Sparrow this week, and Warmth of Other Suns by the end of next week.
Do you have any suggestions for books that I should include on my reading list this year? I need about 30 more ideas!
