Books I Read – 2018

In 2018, I started keeping a list of all the books I read that year. Since then, I’ve continued, watching the annual lists grow longer, as I succeed in beating personal records. Keeping a log has been a great way to monitor my own progress and increase my reading goals.

Below is my first ever reading list. Some books here I loved, others I strongly disliked. In either case, I felt accomplished and enriched by each one I finished. Even the “bad” books taught me something. Sometimes, learning what not to do as a writer is more helpful than the opposite.

I love the way that each book — any book — is its own journey. You open it, and off you go…
