2017 Reading Goals

2017 Reading Goals

Guys.  Not only was 2016 a garbage fire for all sorts of things out in the world but in my own little corner of the world it wasn’t the best for reading.  I dropped my goal and still didn’t make it.  In fact, it pains me to say this but as I write this post I haven’t read a book in over a month.  OVER A MONTH.  Believe me it’s not because I didn’t want to, it is just life kind of got in the way and took over all my free time.  2017 though?  I’m hoping to change all of that and get myself back to reading and reviewing like normal.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman

About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question.
