My favorites for the year were Sunburn, Circe, and a backlist non-fiction book, Hammer Head: The Making of a Carpenter. I also bailed on a few books, but I couldn’t tell you how many. Once they’re gone I don’t track them anymore. Of the books that I finished, Pretty Girls was my least favorite, and according to Goodreads it was also the longest book I read in 2018. Go figure!
For this year my reading goal is 75 books. I’m aiming for a nice blend of book club selections, new releases, old TBR veterans, audiobooks, items from my personal shelves, books set in places I plan to visit, next books in series, and the dreaded reading challenge prompts. This year I’m going to make a more deliberate effort to read just one book at a time. I’ve thought that having multiple books going has helped me reach a higher number, but it’s also resulted in too many partially read books taunting me from the “currently reading” shelf. This is part of a broader “resolution” this year to get sh*t done.
