My 2019 Reading List

Okay y’all, one of my goals for 2019 is to read more, so I put together a focused list of the specific books I want to dig into throughout the year and thought I’d share it with you in case you’re looking for any good reads to add to your list!

P.S. For those wondering, I highly doubt that I will accomplish reading every book on this list in 2019 (forty books in 365 days is a pretty tall order!) But I couldn’t narrow down, so anything that doesn’t get read this year will likely carry over into next year.

What about you? Anything you’re excited to read this year? Did you add any of these books to your list? Let me know in the comments below!
