2017 Family Book Club Picks



Happy New Year! It is the time of year for fresh starts and big goals. I love the feeling of the first of the new year when I have all the optimism that this will be the year that I will accomplish all of my goals–who knows, maybe I will this year!

There is one goal that I feel confident will be met this year, completing a book club with my sisters and mom. Each of us are avid readers and whenever we get together, books are always a staple to our conversation. So with this as the background, we decided to gift each other book club picks for Christmas to prepare for our first ever family book club. This year, my sisters, mom and I will make our way through 11 books, and spend time each month on Skype discussing the book. I will post along as we make our way through this delicious list of books. Here are our picks and the months we will be reading them:

JanuaryA Man Called Ove – Fredrik Backman (Erin’s & Janette’s pick)
