Here we are in a New Year! I am usually not one to make resolutions, but I do like to make reading goals. Last year I was one book shy of meeting my #mustread goal, reading 39 of 40. I had broken it up into New Releases, Books I've Missed, and Classics. This year I had a little more trouble making the list. It is certainly not that I don't have a large amount of books to read, but I think I was just a little less organized going into this project. After working on it off and on for a few days, I composed a list of 35 books.
My list for 2017:
Audacity Jones to the Rescue by Kirby Larson(2/26/17) Another Brooklyn by Jaqueline Woodson(2/20/17) The Bad Guys by Aaron Blabey(5/31/17) Be Light Like a Bird by Monika Schroder(2/25/17) A Boy Called Bat by Elana K.
