Ever since I was a little girl I have loved reading. I visited the library often and would come home with stacks of books I couldn't wait to start reading. I enjoy reading many different genres and at the start of every new year I like to put together a list of books I want read for that year. Here are my top 24 books I'd like to read in 2017. There are a few classics in the list that I've always meant to read but just haven't gotten around to yet.  I'm always looking for suggestions so if there are any books you've read and would recommend I'd love to hear about them! I’m currently about half way through The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler and am really enjoying it.
