Happy 2019, my friends!
I am very pleased with how my 2018 reading goals came together this year. While I certainly wasn’t perfect (still not reading much nonfiction and plenty to read for the first time on my shelves), I had such a great reading year! I read so many wonderful books and was able to meet some other bookish goals as well.
Biggest news is I broke my record for most books read in a single year! This year I read . . . 76 Books! I am so proud of this amazing number! What a fantastic reading year it’s been for me!
Enjoy a few other blogging and bookish highlights from my year.
