My goal was 30 and I made it to 38. Very pleased with that. It’s the most I’ve read in a year since I’ve had kids and it’s been fun seeing what everyone else has been reading.

Looking forward to this years reading.

We do, I was tempted to start one but Ianthe's always been the OP of these and I keep hoping that she'll pop back in! :(

Last book for the year - I know I technically finished it in 2019 but I read the bulk of it in 2018, so I'm counting it! - #46, Pieces of Her - Karin Slaughter. Readable enough but not outstanding.

My target was 20, and I smashed through that pretty easily! 2018 was quite a difficult year for me, but the events that occurred did lead to me rediscovering reading and finding time to lose myself in books.
