Hey y’all…
 
Quick question: What was the most interesting book(s) you read this year? Please drop your answers in the comment section, I’m always open for recommendations!
 
I have had a very fulfilling reading experience in 2017 because I shared the joy of reading with more people. I joined #Bookstagram, to read more about this, CLICK HERE. I joined numerous bookclubs, only virtual ones because I don’t have the time yet to join the physical ones. I created my own Whatsapp Bookclub which I hope to turn into a physical one in 2018. The members are some of the most interesting minds in the world, I wish we could have our own TV  show, it will be LIT! (pun intended) If you are interested in joining, please send an email to lipglossmaffia@gmail.com
 
I read over 100 books this year, but this post is a recap of  the 2017 reading challenge which was an absolute blast!
