BOOK CHAT: Books Read in 2018

In 2018, I read a total of 44 books.  I did not finish one book in December.  Life was turned upside down for me, and my reading took a hit.  It is one of my worst reading years on record.  It's okay though.  My life turning upside down was surprisingly just what I needed.  Now, I am just working to get back into reading like I once used to.  For those interested, here's the full list of books read for the year.  I will be back to share my favorites from the year hopefully later this week.

  1. 44 is still something to be proud of. I hope you get your reading mojo back.

  2. wishing you the best, and hoping to see more book reviews

    1. Emma at Words and Peace ... Thank you, and I hope to get back to writing them soon!

  3. I totally lost my reading mojo late in the year too but it's finally starting to come back to me. I hope it does for you as well! You read some really great books last year! I especially loved Night Film, Challenger Deep, and Strange Weather. Good ol' Riordan. I'd love to do a re-read of the Percy Jackson series one of these days. :)

    1. Bonnie R ... I really need to finish the Percy Jackson series, but I gotta finish the Harry Potter series with my kids first!!
