At the start of 2018, I had the goal of reading 20 books by the time I went off to college in August. With the help of the public library and Goodreads, I achieved this yesterday!
I want to better honor my small achievements, so here are the 20 books I read!
Me being me, I leaned towards nonfiction and a wide range of lengths.
Joe Biden’s book was one of my favorites. It was sweet, honest, and strong. I showed me what a close family could look like.
Lean in and Big magic were two great reads that stuck with me.
At the end, I tried moving towards more fiction, although still in the realm of real-word contemplations. These five were not what I expected, but I got something out of each.
You can read my thoughts on some of these books on my Goodreads account!
My goal for the rest of the year is to read 15 more, for a total of 35 books! I know college is going to be hectic so we’re going to be realistic. Thirty-five is already crazy, considering I only read a handful last year. It makes me so happy that I’m making changes that put myself closer to who I want to be.
