Oh hey, team. Look at this, it’s not a Netflix list for once, it’s a real live BOOK list. Haha. Actually, I read a quote on Pinterest (maybe it was Instagram) the other day that said that no one has time to read, some people just MAKE time. So, that’s my aim for 2019 to read more books. To read them and not just leave them laying around my house with post-it notes as bookmarks between their pages.

I’ve always been a reader.

As a child, I would spend my nights, long after lights out, reading with a small lamp in my bed. In my twenties, it was all about the Harry Potters and even Twilight (let’s face it, Bella was much cooler in the books, sorry K-Stew). And don’t even get me started on my love of the Hunger Games series. Later my favourites became business and social media based books, biographies and, try not to laugh, cookbooks.

Reading inspires me; it challenges me and there is always something new to learn or discover in a book. That’s why I’m keen to finish more of them this year. But with that in mind, I will not finish (or keep) books that I’m not into. Life’s too short for that. I’m going to stop reading if I really can’t get into it and cut my losses. Not always the best strategy, but that’s the plan for now. So, in the interests of that and sharing what’s on my shelf (or what I’ve ordered) to kick off the year, my list is below.

Enjoy!

There you go, team! My reading list heading into the first part of the year. And yes, you’ve seen some of these before. I might have mentioned them once or twice (haha) but such is the life of someone who loves books, buys a lot of them, and never quite finishes them. Haha. This is my year; I will finish what I’ve started! So, what are you reading now or preparing to read in 2019?? All suggestions welcome.
