My first book of 2017 has not been chosen yet. It's difficult because I almost feel like that first book of 2017 sets the tone for the rest of the year so I must chose carefully. Nonsense, I know, but that's the way my mind runs sometimes.
I thought I would share some book blogs with you that I found and that you might be interested in:
Books on the Nightstand
I am always late to the party it seems. This blog/podcast has ended but there are many episodes you can go back and listen to and I have and still do. With all my handwork projects, I truly enjoy audio podcasts as there is no need to look up and take my eyes off of what I am working on.
Modern Mrs. Darcy
This is one of my favorites for sure and her recommendations are always spot on plus she keeps you informed of the better quality ebook titles that are on sale
This is Sheila who is so good at what she does and her love for books truly shows
Here are some others you might want to check out.........

At this time of year most of the book sites and blogs have a list of The Best Books of 2016 which is always fun to peruse and there are also book challenges where you can challenge the number of books you read and try to up it and also change the type of books you usually read. Step out of your comfort zone in the safety and security of your reading genre.
I will be joining the Good Reads 2017 Reading Challenge. Last year my challenge was 50 books and I went over that by a little so this year I raised it to 75 books. I also joined the challenge set out by Modern Mrs. Darcy which is really a suggestions list of types of books to read and you try and read one from each category to "spice things up a bit". There are 2 lists. One is Reading For Growth and the other is Reading For Fun and I will attempt to complete both.
Well, this post is plenty long enough so I think I will post about what I've read and what I'm reading next week. If you have any good suggestions for other "bookish" blogs or interesting reading challenges out there, please let us know! Happy reading and Happy trails!
