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. So far this goal doesn’t seem like it will be accomplished this year either. But this time I am determined to read a few books 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.

twenty-five books on my to-read list:


1 | chasing slow: courage to journey off the beaten path by Erin Loechner

2 | the honest life: living naturally and true to you by Jessica Alba

3 | essentialism: the disciplined pursuit of less by Greg McKeown

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.
