100 + Books from 2018

Happy New Year! The most important question for the new year is….what should you read first?

As promised, here is my complete list of 2018 reads.

I love how Goodreads keeps track of the books that I read – since I barely remember if I’ve finished something or what it was called. I’m one of those people who will pick up a book and get excited to read it…only to discover that I’ve already read it.  I look forward to reading great books this coming year as well. I don’t like to set numbers for myself, because who really cares how much you read as long as you’re loving it all along the way; but I enjoy being part of the Goodreads challenge since it organizes and collects my books nicely.

Let me know if you’ve read any of these books (or have questions about any of them) or recommend others!

Happy reading in 2019!
