Sincerely, Reading: Recommendations

book recommendationsAs you can see, I’ve always loved reading!

I really enjoyed seeing how other bloggers use Instagram Stories to crowd source and then share responses with their followers. I get most excited to see when they’ve compiled a list of book recommendations – I’m always looking for something new to add to my “to-read” shelf on Goodreads! The best part of IG Stories is that you can screenshot these lists, so even if I’m viewing the stories in passing, I’ll save lists for later.

Seeing how other people use Stories inspired me to share my own list of books that I read in 2017, and rank them by favorite to least liked. I also copied all of the books on my “for later” shelf and shared that list in case anyone else needs a good book. While you might have seen the list on my Instagram Stories (follow me if you don’t already), I figured it wouldn’t hurt to share the book recommendations again on the blog. In case you didn’t screenshot that list on Instagram, here’s another one that won’t disappear in 24 hours. Click through to find your next great read!
