52 Books in 52 Weeks

I challenged myself to read 52 books in 2017, one book for each week of the year. At the start of the year I was wildly optimistic and expected I would come in well over 52, BUT, life happens, and I found myself cutting it pretty close towards the end (that will happen when you have a newborn baby in tow I suppose). BUT, I did it. 

Here are the 52 books I read in 2017. This was a great year in this bookworm's life, and I enjoyed pretty much everything on the list, but my favorites are highlighted.
