My Page-Turning Favourites For 2018

At the beginning of the year I set myself a goal to read 14 books. I figured that would work out at roughly one per month. Adding on an extra one or two for the holiday beach reads give or take. Actually, the number of Books I’ve Read In 2018 has actually surpassed that goal, which I’m really pleased about.

I didn’t get around to reviewing all the books unfortunately. Reviewing more books is definitely going to be a goal for next year! If I haven’t reviewed the books, I’ve popped a link to Goodreads, so you can check them out.
