This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is: Favorite Polarizing Books! I’m SUPER interested to see what people listed for this week’s topic. I found this pretty challenging so I’m just doing a top 3 this week!

da-vinci-code

1. The Da Vinci Code: I know, I know, but hear me out. I mentioned previously that my husband doesn’t enjoy reading fiction. The Da Vinci Code is one of the very few fiction books he’s read all the way through. If a book can keep my husband’s attention and spark an interest in visiting Europe, it’s aces if you ask me!

2. Gone Girl: This is the first book that popped into my head for this week because you either love it or you hate it. Yes, almost every single character is unlikable. But I could not put this book down! I really enjoyed it!

3. Lolita: I think the fact that I read this in one of my Lit classes where we had the opportunity to really analyze and discuss it helped me to appreciate this novel. That being said, I totally get people who hate this book. It’s not exactly a pleasant story line.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else did for this one!

Top 5 Wednesday: 2017 Reading Goals!

118368

It’s the first Top 5 Wednesday of the year! I don’t know about everyone else but I am more than happy to say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017! This week’s topic: Goals!

1. A 2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge of 30 books: This was my goal last year as well and I *just* made it so I’m keeping it the same. Especially since I’m hoping to finally read Outlander this year, which is pretty long.

2. Read Outlander: Ha! Maybe if I put it down as a goal I’ll actually make it happen 🙂

3. Convince my husband to read 1 fiction book!: Every year my non-reading husband makes it a goal to read a few books. I buy him books he may enjoy for Christmas, ask him about what he’s reading, etc. And every year…nothing. This year I WILL get this man to read a fiction book.

4. Most more non-meme stuff: I do a lot of book memes for the majority of my posts, along with a monthly reading recap. This year I would like to post at least 1 non-meme post a month (baby steps!)

5. Have fun! I’m not going to stress too much about what I’m reading this year – if it sounds interesting, I’m reading it!

What are your 2017 reading goals?
