Books I Read This Year

Hello all!

Firstly, let me say this: Happy New Year! I hope you all have a wonderful 2019!

As it’s New Year’s Eve, I thought I’d just make a short post to round up what I’ve read this year, and let you know what I rated each book. This year has been a good book year for me, I’ve read so many great books and discovered some (a lot of) new favourites along the way! In total this year I managed to read 36 books! I’m very proud that I managed to read this many books this year. I started the year setting my goal as 20 books because I was busy writing my dissertation and finishing university. Then I was in the process of moving back home, which meant that I had loads of time for reading, so I set my goal to 35 books. And then I started the job hunt, and found a full time job, meaning that since October I’ve not had as much time to read as I have done previously. Nevertheless, I’ve still managed to read a lot, and smash my Goodreads goal not once, but twice!

Anyway here it is, my 2018 reads and ratings.
