Not Merely Reading // My Book Bucket List

Readingquotation 

This is a list in progress of all the books I either A) have read and loved or B) have always wanted to read. I have probably spent more time wondering what book I should read next than actually reading. No More.

I’ve finally taken the time to start a list of all the books that I think are worth reading. This is a list of mostly novels (I’m partial to fiction), and it is definitely not exhaustive. I hope that it will be a work in progress. Is there a book you’d like to recommend or think I should add to the list? Drop me a note! Are you on Goodreads? ME TOO! Let’s be friends. :)
