Ah, 2019. Another year (almost) gone. It was… a time. Some of it was great, some of it not-so-great. But you know what was great? The number of books I managed to read!
50 books, y’all! I’m so proud of myself! Just a couple years ago, I was barely managing to read 10 books, if that. So the fact that I managed to hit 50 in 2019 makes me so happy. I love reading and I feel like I missed out on so much during the time where I barely had the energy to pick up a book.
I also really enjoyed having this blog to share what I read. While I may not have managed to write a post every single month, I still blogged about everything I read. That’s another feat I’m proud of! I’ll never call myself a real book blogger (I couldn’t degrade the real book bloggers by doing that) but writing about books is fun.
Anyway, here’s everything I read in 2019 and my favorites of the bunch!

As of the end of September, I’m finally back on track with my Goodreads goal! Phew. For a while there I was beginning to wonder if I’d ever have the time and desire to read a book again.

So here’s what I read in September!

For 2019, I’ve set my Goodreads Reading Challenge to 48 books, up by 12 from last year. I have faith in myself that I can do it, but it still seems like a lot to read—to me at least!
While end of the year round-ups are fun, I figured I’d do monthly ones too. So if you’re interested in seeing what I’ve read this month and what I thought about them, please do read on!
