What I Read in 2019

A few years ago, my husband Will and I decided it would be cool to read a book a week for ten years (on average, knowing that some years that goal will come easier than others). I’m happy to report that year three, which ends today, was my best year of reading yet, with a nice round 60 books (up from 55 in 2017 and 45 in 2018, bringing my three-year average up to 53.3 books.)

This last year, I tacked a second component onto my reading goal: As a serious Goodreads user, I wanted to start contributing to that community and database by rating and briefly reviewing every book I read. So I did!

Below is a collage of all the books I read in 2019 (also found here.) Thanks, Goodreads!
