    Best of luck with your goals! I’m sure five books is totally doable! (at least, that’s what I’m hoping myself)

    Starship Troopers! I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I saw that movie 4 times in the theater and yet I’ve never read the book.
    Good luck on your goals!

    Two hours seemed like a decent amount of hours to read a day, that’s what I’ve decided to do too. Good luck with your goals!

    Great choices, and interesting as well. I haven’t read that one by Libba Bray but I loved Beauty Queens so, so much. And Agatha Christie is always great. Good luck!
