Total books for the year: 10 of 50.  How is The Court of Thorns and Roses considered to be YA?!  I’ve been sick most of the week, and am finally beginning to feel human again. Luckily, I don’t have work today so I can continue to rest whenever I’m not washing everything my germy self has come in contact with while I’ve been stuck at home.

Total books for the year: 3 of 50.  This week was Bout of Books, and I love starting off the new year with this challenge/readathon.  I always feel like I’m getting a head start on my reading goals, and right now I’m 2 books ahead of schedule.  I also love taking the time near the beginning of the year to put everything else aside and relax for a bit.  It’s a nice reminder that not everything has to get done Right Now.

Total books for the year: 0 of 50The Fifth Doll was my 94th book of 2018.  Though I went well over my goal of 90 books, I wasn’t working for nearly half of the year, and I found myself choosing shorter books over what I really wanted to read after I started my new job.  Though most of the books I read were good (and many were great), I don’t want to do that again.

Total books for the year: 93 of 90.  It’s New Year’s Eve and Hogmanay!  I do more introverting than partying when bringing in the New Year, so I’m trying to decide what my first book of the year should be.  See below for my choices, pick the one you think I should read, and then I’ll post a pic of the winner on my Instagram and Litsy.
