Progress On My Reading List

Eight weeks into the year and I've only read 4 books. This doesn't bode well. But as I had originally thought some books may make it into more than one category. The book I just finished, The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, definitely fit in here. I love her books and I was pretty sure it would make me cry and it did. But it was such a good read. I highly recommend it, but don't forget the tissues.
