Hello Friends! Welcome to my first blog post on my new website. I’ve decided to use my blog on my site for, well, everything! Not just photography posts. I do SO much, and have a crazy life, so I thought I’d just make my blog about me, and things I do? You get my drift.
So, throughout my whole life, I’ve been a book nerd. That used to make me so proud in elementary school, when I was in advanced reading groups. Then I was so embarrassed to be a bookworm in like middle school. Caring is so lame in 6th-8th grade! But in high school, when I stopped caring about if my hobbies were cool or not, I embraced it once again. One of my best friend’s (we shall call her K) and I would literally be getting new books daily in the school library. We’d keep lists, recommend books to each other, and just obsess over literature together. I am proud to say that K and I still do this, even though we live 2 hours away from each other.
In Jan. 2017, I made a personal goal to read 100 books this year. I failed that goal so hard! I only read 75 books this year. It was so much harder than I thought. I tracked my books using the Modern Mrs. Darcy reading journal. It was free, and you can download the PDF for it here! (This is totally not sponsored, I’m just a girl who loves and appreciates FREE resources.)
People always ask me for good book recommendations. I have SO many!! I was planning to make a list of the 100 books I read this year, but that failed, and honestly some books I would NOT recommend reading. In the reading journal sheets, you rate the book you read out of 5 stars. So, I sorted through my reading journal and found my “5 star” books of 2017. Out of 75 books, 25 were 5/5 STAR AMAZING! Books that I’d recommend to EVERYONE. Without further rambling, I present to you: Morgan’s 5 Star Books I read in 2017!
