2017 Summer Reading Goals

with No Comments

Happy Summer Solstice! 

I’m not one to set specific reading goals throughout the year, besides my annual Goodreads Challenge.

But this summer, I decided to change it up! I chose 12 books that have been on my shelves or TBR for just a little too long. My goal is to read them all by September 22nd, the official end of summer. I’m hoping this self-made challenge will give me the kick in the butt that I need to finish some books that have been on my shelves for a while. 

Feel free to scroll on to see the full list or watch me here:



Here’s the full list (the links will take you to the book’s Goodreads page):
