Twenty-Five Books On My Reading List

As you probably know one of my goals for this year is to read 100 books. You probably know this because I haven’t stopped talking about it. It’s because this is a pretty big goal for me to accomplish and I’ve been wanting to tackle it for years. I’ve pursued it before and failed, unfortunately. But this time I am determined to complete it and get back to my love of reading!

I plan on tackling a bunch of books over the next few months that have been on my reading list for a while. These books will be under the genres of minimalism, style, self-help, nonfiction, and fiction. The reason I’ve been able to keep up with all of the books that I’d like to read is because of Goodreads. Goodreads is a great place to find new book recommendations as well as keep track of all of the books that you are currently reading, have read, and want to read.

I have a lot of books on my reading list, but here 25 of the books that I want to read to reach my 100 books reading goal.

This is an amazing book and a must-read for every single person! I picked it up because I’ve seen a lot of people post about it and the reviews are always great. It exceeded my expectations of what this book would be about. If you’re even remotely curious about it – you should read it. I promise you won’t regret it!

These are twenty-five books that I’ve wanted to read for a while and I’m finally checking them off of my reading list. I can’t wait to read all of these books and I’d definitely love some suggestions from you.

    I’ve read a few of these! Chasing Slow is SO GOOD – I actually left a review on my site if you want to check it out (no spoilers!). 🙂

    For fiction I recommend All The Light We Cannot See, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, and Snowflower and the Secret Fan.

    • Ah nice! I’m currently working on reading them all. I’ll have to check out your suggestions, thanks!
