The Books on my Shelves….

One of my New Years Resolutions is to read all the books that I have on my shelves that I haven’t read. This is well over 20 books. I’m going to make a list of them on this post and throughout the year, I hope to actually read them, write reviews about them on another post and link them to this one…This list is HUGE. And slightly ridiculous. I have a feeling I overlooked a book or two, but it’s so long that I’m wondering if I can read them all in a year. 😮 (Or less than, since it’s April now)…. What do you guys think?… Any… Tips? Comments? Where should I even Start?!
