I'm following Val's lead after seeing her reading goal from last year, and now this year! I'm being optimistic and thinking 25 books might be doable! Considering I'm not a reader, I'm accepting this challenge. Owning it. This list isn't set in stone but each of the books listed below have been recommended multiple times, so they must be pretty good!
