  1. I read Trail of Broken Wings this last year as well and would put it in my top reads, I also loved Everything I Never Told You which I think I read end of 2016. This last year I read her new book Little Fires Everywhere – so good! Also – I so far have really only done audio books on travel days while driving somehow it never occurred to me to do that while crocheting or crafting instead trying to find a show to watch on Netflix. haha.

    • I am really bad at recognizing authors. I might like Little Fires Everywhere then! I really like how the author writes!

      Which audio books have you heard lately that you have enjoyed? I have already read & listened to 7 books this year and will be finishing another book I am reading to the boys tomorrow!

  2. I think you might. if you read it let me know what you think 🙂

    I am really picky on audiobooks and we aren’t driving much at the moment….so not a lot. I mostly listen to Podcasts when I am at home with kiddo, doing laundry or dishes or what not. But I just starting listening to Brene Brown’s Braving the Wilderness and so far so good. I am going to look at some of the ones you mentioned.

    You are on a role with reading this year! I can sneak in some time during the day some times but not too much with a three year old so it’s mostly at night before bed. What have you loved so far? I’ve only read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas ( LOVED IT!) and am about half way through This Is How It Always is by Laurie Frankel and am loving that as well. They are both easy reads but topics that really make you think about things and I have cried reading both so there is that ha.

  3. Can you believe that I’m such an idiot that I didn’t notice you recommended my book until now? Haha. Thank you so much for reading and you really were an inspiration for me to try to read more this year. I remember the last few days of 2017 when you were trying to reach your goal <3. And you did it! This year I'm already at my third book. I won't get to your number, but defo more than usual!

    • Haha. Of course! I loved it!
      I hope you are able to read more! Whatever the reading goal is, I hope you’ll reach it! My first year I only read 27 books!

      It is funny because in the first four days of the year I read a book each day too! I was non-stop in the end of December through that week! I have read 9 books this month in total so far. I hope to finish a few more by then!
