The Best of 2018


I barely made my goal of 225 books for 2018! Like, barely (by literal hours). This past year brought :
  • 7 amazing trips
  • a new job
  • a new volunteer position in my church
  • a lot of family time
  • a renewed focus on health
  • some happy times (time spent with my family, reading time, time spent with friends, book events)
  • some hard/sad times (the loss of our cat, the loss of a close family friend)
Here are some of the bright spots in my reading year! Of course, it's always hard to choose favorites. What are some of your top reads from 2018? Have you read any of my picks? Do you have any suggestions for me for 2019?

  
  
  
 

Happy Reading!

  1. I really enjoyed My Sister's Intended. Have you read The Fall of Lord Drayson by the same author?

  3. I really enjoyed Four Days of Christmas by Emma St. Clair. It is a sweet and clean holiday romance. She has become one of my favorite authors. She can take a trite storyline and make it something special. There is usually a strong moral message or a faith message and sometimes even faith-filled.
