For as long as I can remember, I have always loved reading.
Growing up, I would read every night before bed and stay up way too late reading with a flash light under my covers reading late...I would get so wrapped up in my books (and I am a night owl) and even as a kid I would stay up late and read.
My best friend AK and I would have reading competitions in the summer to see who could read the most BabySitters Club and Sweet Valley Twins books.
I remember going to the library during the summer months when I was in middle school & high school and checking out stacks of books. I would read 30-40 books each summer!!
But, for the past 12 years since college, becoming a teacher & mom of 3 young kids, my reading has totally decreased. I now read between 8-12 a year. That's it! And, I do most of my reading in the summer.
My goal this year in 2015 is to read 15 books.
My plan is to read 1 book per month and then in the summer months (June, July & August) read 2 books. I think that is a very attainable goal!
I would LOVE to hear what your favorite books are!
These are types of books I love:
I have read the entire Harry Potter Series. Loved them
I have read the entire Twilight Series. Loved those also.
Hunger Games? Obsessed. Read all 3 books in 5 days.
Last summer I read all 3 books of the Divergent series & loved those.
Last year I also read Gone Girl & Fault in our Stars....both fanstasic!
I love reading things by Mary Higgins Clark & Jodi Picoult.
Last year I started reading Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult and also The Paris Wife by Paula Mclain but I never finished either of them...maybe I should try them again & finish them?
Right now I am reading The Best Yes & I am loving it.
So, as you can see, I have a random assortment of books I like!
Do you love to read? How many books do you read each year?
I would love to hear your favorite books that you have read in the past year or two so I can add them to my list of books to read in 2015!
