While doing some blog hopping for a Links I Loved post last year, I came across Nick’s blog One Catholic Life through which he takes part in multiple reading challenges ever year. He’s hosting a reading challenge himself this year to read the unabridged version of Les Misérables by Victor Hugo in its entirety.

Anyone else super excited about 2017? I think many of us are more than ready to leave 2016 behind us, but I’m also really looking forward to a whole new year to reset, start over where needed, continue to grow and make progress.
If you read my post about my Goals for 2017 you’ll know that my word for the year is Renew. One of the small changes I’ve decided to make is to add general lifestyle links to my Links I Loved posts starting with next week. They will be links from non-bookish blogs I read and like on general topics like bullet journaling, meditation, exercise etc.. They’ll be at the end, so feel free to skip them if you prefer 🙂 And Happy New Year in advance to everyone!
