30 Books Before 30

Good morning my loves!

I hope you’re having a great week so far! Today’s post has been inspired by Jean from Jean’s Bookish Thoughts and Simon from Savage Reads. They’ve recently both posted videos sharing books that they’d like to read before they hit milestone birthdays. So, I’ve decided to do something similar – here are my 30 books I’d like to read before I hit 30. I have just over 2 years until this milestone and so these 30 should be totally doable! There’s mix in here of both fiction and non-fiction and I’m looking forward to reading each and every one.
