My 2017 Reading Challenge | A Bundle of Books



 A new year means new opportunities, new resolutions, and, of course, new reading challenges! Every year I set reading goals for myself according to what kind of changes I want to make in my reading. If you would like to check out my 2016 Reading Challenge, you can find it here. It’s fair to say that it was a complete fail.

But now, let’s take a look at those books and find out which ones were my favourite and least favourite, and which one I highly recommend!
