4 books I hope to read this year

Reading more is one of my 2018 goals and included in my 101 in 1001 list. I'm aiming to read a book a month, something that in theory should be easy. I really struggled through my January book, so much so that I finally just returned it to the library with only about 50 pages read. But I've actually almost finished reading two books this month, keeping me on track! I realized the difference is totally in what book I'm reading. I'm one of those people who keeps a list of books to read on my phone to reference whenever I go to the library. Here are 4 books I'm hoping to cross off my list and read this year.

1. Sisters First - Jenna Bush Hager is one of my favorites; she's one of those celebrities that I just feel like would be like talking to an old friend even if it was the first time you met her. As someone who cherishes the relationship I have with my own sisters I love the idea of this book.

2. The Beautiful and Damned - The Great Gatsby is my favorite book, but its the only thing I've ever read from F. Scott Fitzgerald, I think 2018 is the time to change that.

3. The 7 Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - I've heard so many good things about this one; I think I saw it listed on the favorite reads of 2017 from about 5 different bloggers. Now I just need the waitlist at the library to go down so I can get my hands on this one.

4. A biography of Mary Queen of Scots - I binge watched Reign a few months back and was fascinated with it. I realize most of it was dramatized for television, but it got really interested in this queen.

What books do you hope to read this year? Any I should add to my list?
