Progress Track: 6 Out of 20 Books Read for 2017!

(This post was written last March 26. It was supposed to be up before I left for my commitment but WordPress betrayed me haha so here it is!)

March is closing, and I’m so happy to have read six (6) books for the first quarter of 2017! Last year, I only finished SEVEN. And for me, that was already a feat as I wasn’t really into books. But this time around, I resolved to read at least twenty (20) books and challenged myself to make reading a habit. Which means, I’m at 30%-ish of my goal! However, I can’t review most of these books (for now) so I’m collating all the summaries here. My theme for the first quarter: Love, romance, relationships – whatever you call it! 🙂

18 Heartwarming Book Dedications To Brighten Up Your Day

dedication

From the movie “Definitely, Maybe”, there was a scene where Will asked April why she has so many copies of Jane Eyre. She told him that her deceased father gave her a copy of the book with an inscription she never read. It was later lost, and she has been searching for it inside secondhand bookstores. Since then, every Jane Eyre book with a beautiful inscription is bought as part of her collection.

That’s where I got the inspiration to compile from my e-bookshelf these lovely book dedications where authors express their love and gratitude to their parents, lovers, certain people, or readers – in which, somehow tell little stories and connections. It brought me delight while making these, and I hope they also bring you happiness and positivity as you read them. 🙂

My New Year’s resolution is to read twenty (20) novels this year. I never appreciated reading books before, but thanks to Sophie Kinsella, I was able to find it enjoyable and fun. She wrote the first book I finished in 2016 (I’ve Got Your Number) which started my own reading revolution. And I trusted Kinsella once more to jumpstart my 2017 that’s gonna be full of stories, inspiration, and book reviews *crossed fingers*.

Sophie Kinsella is an English author famous for her Shopaholic series. I actually didn’t know she has stand-alone books until last year. One of them is “Twenties Girl”, a chick-lit comedy novel published in 2009.

Is it just me or when you encounter a good book, you just want to look through the other works of that particular author? Because lately, I’ve been binge reading books published by Cecelia Ahern. I have grown quite fond of her unique writing style where she just incorporates fantasy to her chick-lits. This time, it is shown in her novel, “Thanks for the Memories” published in 2008.
