What I read in 2018

Not going to finish another book this year so this is every book I read this year.

Actually quite the drop, didn’t hit 52 in 52 but had quite a few different things to work on in the back end of the year. 🤷

Also I’ve decided every book I read in 2019 will be books already on my shelves. So if you have any recommendations, get them in quick!
