I'm setting a pretty lofty reading goal for myself this year. It's a thing that writers read. And to write better, I need to read more. So, here we are. I'm challenging myself to read all the books below. Most are fiction reads that I have never heard of, but reviews and synopses sounded good, so I added them. If I can't get through one, I'll choose another. I used the reading challenges from Modern Mrs. Darcy to help choose and give me ideas for most of these and then I added a few reads for personal, spiritual growth. I can fly through some fiction books, but the spritual growth books are the ones that stop me in my tracks and make me read slow. With good reason. Please check back into this page and my Goodreads to make sure I'm actually reading. It's one of my goals this year to be honest in my writing, whatever I write. Reading is just one way to help grow that.
