*I am currently reading this one, but it's pretty long so it may not be done by the end of the year
**I am reading this one with my son, so again, depending on how much time we find to read this it may not be done either.


I am starting at 74 books currently, so if I finish all 20 of these I will have 94 books, but I'm trying to give myself a little wiggle room if I don't feel like reading a certain book. Should be interesting!!

23. Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
24. True Devotion by Dee Henderson (4*)
