Well, another year down. There were definitely some highs and lows, but I’m ready for a new year. I know I’ve talked about how my blogging has dwindled in these posts for the past few years, but 2018 was the worst. I only posted 20 times. I have several review posts prepped, but just can’t seem to push myself to finish them. I still update with Goodreads, though. I honestly doubt I’ll ever post frequently as I did the first years I blogged, but I don’t want to give it up completely.
Even though blogging is low, my reading has been pretty solid. I set my goal to 60, skeptical I’d even reach that, but I exceeded it and read 78 books. Wish I could’ve rounded it up to 80. Overall, the year was filled with good books & only a couple of disappointments.
2018 was all about the series for me. Several beloved series came to an end, but I also made it a goal to catch up on or finish any that I had neglected. Also, since so many came to a close, I decided to start in on those that I’ve accumulated over the years but never got around to, like the Arcadia Bell series by Jenn Bennett. I loved it and am so glad I was able read them all without waiting in between books!
Now, for my top reads. I read a lot of good books, but these are the ones that had that extra something. They’re in no particular order and they link to my review if there is one.
