My 2018 Reading Year in Review

2018 was actually a really good year for me; reading wise and life wise. This was the first year I’ve read 200 books and I really can’t believe it! But more importantly, I have made so many more friendships and connections and I truly feel so blessed that I get to gush about books with so many people! Thank you so much to everyone who interacts with me and takes the time to read my reviews. It means more to me than you’ll ever know! And I’m wishing you all pure happiness, unconditional love, good health, and all the good reads in 2019! But let’s talk about some stats now!
