2017 is Already LIT!!!!

So, I am so excited I decided to share the joys of little victories with y'all. No, I'm not going to jinx myself *rolling my eyes*.. yet (lol)
I set ONE goal for myself in 2017. Drum roll please...

To finish all the books I started in 2016 before opening a new one 
 via GIPHY

Yes! this is a very big deal for me, why?
I wasn't much of a reader growing up (which is weird because a lot of writers are simultaneously readers too right? I think). But anyway, I just read a few books here and there; I'd just rather see the movie honestly. But my life changed after I discovered the pure gold of treasures hidden in the pages of a book! Lord!
I think this hunger for a good read came with me wanting to dig deeper into the Word. So with doing a lot of Bible studies on my own, my interest in other good books came as well to get more understanding. Although I've read a few romantic novels here and there in the past, I read more "serious"books now. And I mix it up with some Christian fiction.

So now that I am into the reading stuff, I feel like I need to catch up on all I have missed my whole life. Phew, I start A LOT of books and read them at the same time but I never get to finish any because my hands are just always full. Hence, my goal setting. And guess who already finished 2 books in 2017?



So here are a few books I loved reading and currently reading

Did I mention I read LOADS of articles and listen to sermons too? Yep, so my attention is kinda shared. I hope to do a post soon on "the dangers of head knowledge" to open up to you all about the potential dangers of taking a lot of resources in like I tend to do.

What is/are your goal(s) for 2017? 
How do you have "book loyalty/discipline" i.e. sticking to a few books for a period

I'd like to hear your thoughts in the comment section!
