2018 Reading and goals for 2019

I fell a bit short of my reading goals for this year. 2 books short to be precise. I had hoped to read 52 books, one for each week of the year but didn’t quite make it. I have the same goal for 2019 and in this new year I plan on dominating this goal! I’m hoping the 15 or so partially read books I have under my belt will provide me with a sorta kick-start!

I shared some of this list, my 5 (ish) books over on Facebook. I thought I would give you the whole list right here.

These books are in no particular order. Those apart of my top 5 are bold, honorable mentions italicized.
