My 2018 Book Lists

2017 was a year of so much stress and the hassles of simple living took it’s definite toll on me especially in caring for myself leading to neglect of the things I like to do mostly reading.

When I was growing up, I remembered reading anything and everything I could find, my other talents suffered. 

See, I’ll prefer to remain indoors and read instead of developing my inherent talent which included track and field events and other outdoor hobbies. By the time I was in my teens, I could not cook to save my life, I was the least domesticated person you could ever hope to come across 😁😁. I read, read and read some more. My gain? To stay informed and live in my own truth.

So me not doing what I do best for a whole year showed the amount of angst that surrounded me. So I’m saying no to that this year 2018 and moving forward devouring those pages.

First step was joining a book challenge on Goodreads for the year. I’m going to read at least 200 books this year. I will be sharing with you the reviews of the book that I love most as I go, one step at a time.
This is the list of 20 books that I’m starting with.

But to be fair, I’ve already started on my to-be-read pile before I made this post.

FYI-Hope I don’t loose points as most of them are eBooks😁😎. So get a glass of your favourite beverage and let’s go.

    I’m a painfully slow reader so no challenges for me – it’ll literally take me three weeks to read one book but only because I dedicate reading time when I’ve absolutely done everything else. I must read more though, I think its so good for you! Goodluck with your challenge!

    So many book here and so few authors I am familiar with! I haven’t set myself a challenge yet but I am sure I should! I love reading but i haven’t done it as often as i would love

    I can’t get myself to use Goodreads with any consistency… I love your list! “The Upside to Being Single” sounds just like a book I’d enjoy. I also can’t wait to read your review on Without Merit! I’ve read my first ever CoHo novel some weeks ago, and I think she’s great 🙂

    I love reading, that was the only thing I used to do a few years back. After kids, I hardly get enough time but still, I try to be near books as much as I can. The Book Challenge sounds great, the list of books look so good, I would love to check few of these.
