2017 TBR Pile

It’s a new year and while I’ve been flittering between Melbourne and Adelaide I decided to sit down and write up a list of book that I want to read this year. One of my goals for the year is to read more. A few years back I had a goal to read 50 books before July hit and I hit it. Since then I’ve struggled to get more than 30 in a year, or even up to that. A lot of that has been because I was studying or I had an RPG I was roleplaying on.

Excuses, responsibilities, yadda yadda yadda.

So here’s my list, hopefully, there are more books I can add. But I’m going to try and tick them off. And I’m going to ask for your help, help keep me accountable.

By nature, I’m always a fiction girl, so there is no surprise that this list is heavily fiction geared, but that’s okay. I’m going to have more books I have to read for Uni, I know and this is a really adventurous list, but when I sit down and read I can finish a book pretty quickly, so even if I don’t get them all done I plan on continuing but I can totally try and do this, who’s with me?

Bring on the year of reading.
