Reading Challenge 2017 Wrap-Up

It’s time to wrap up the reading challenge that I started in December 2016!
I’ll be honest, I didn’t get around to reading all the books I set out to read. I read many other books instead (and I will list a few at the end of my 2016 list). There is a mood and a time for a certain book and I just felt like the time was not right for some of them. So I will let some books go and perhaps come back to them later, and others will go on my list of books to read next year! 😃
So let’s take a look:
  1. The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes
    Read it and absolutely loved it. Lewis gives some great actionable tips to step into your greatness!
  2. The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom
    I adore the books by Mitch Albom and this one didn’t let me down either! It’s a wonderful read and if you haven’t read it, I can only recommend it!
  3. Silber, das dritte Buch der Träume by Kerstin Gier (German author)
    I read the complete trilogy and this last book didn’t let me down. I really enjoyed reading it and stepping into a world full of magic and dreams. I love reading books like that which held me escape reality for a while and believe that magic actually is real!
  4. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
    This is a typical young adult adventurous love story, which will take you into another world with a different set of rules. As I love exploring new worlds, this series didn’t let me down, as it also touched my heart. It’s an easy read and young adult, I have to admit, still belongs to my favorite genres!
  5. The Annotated Alice by Lewis Carroll
    This book is still on my shelf – unread. I haven’t gotten around to reading it this year. I have, however seen the movies with Johnny Depp, which I enjoyed! But as always, the book is supposed to be better! So it will stay on my list!
  6. The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes by Anna Mc Partlin
    Shame on me for not having read this book yet. It remains on my list of books to read!
  7. The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown
    I love her! And especially this book, all about embracing your authentic self and appreciating your imperfections.
  8. Der Fürst des Nebels by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
    I absolutely adore this author and the picturesque novels that he writes. However, I haven’t gotten around to reading this one yet. It will stay on my list for 2018!
  9. Der Traumtänzer by Andreas Izquierdo
    Unfortunately I did not read this book. So it will stay on my list!
  10. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
    I opted for watching the movie instead of reading the book and found the movie to be fascinating! Now that I’ve seen the movie, I don’t plan on reading the book though. So this one didn’t make it.
  11. Mio mein Mio by Astrid Lindgren
    This is next to Lindgren’s Pipi Langstrumpf one of the only books I kept from my childhood. It’s a wonderful book that will always remain on my book shelf!
  12. Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright
    Love, love, loved it! It’s a wonderful idea and something we should all do more often!
Here is a list of a few books, not on the list, that I enjoyed this year:
  • Die 11 Gezeichneten trilogy by Rose Snow
  • Dan Brown’s new book Origin
  • Own Your Niche by Stephanie Chandler
  • Flow Magazine (L-O-V-E it!)
If you enjoy reading, I hope that you always find a time to read just a little bit every single day!
