We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I wanted to do a quick post before I left for our Christmas vacation to wish our readers a great winter break and to do a quick recommendation for the best books of 2019.
I hope you enjoy all the festivities, and or, a good book or two!
I will be away for just over two weeks visiting my family in England! This is my favorite time of year when I get to have fabulous feasts and lots of catching up with friends and family. I can’t wait to see everyone!
It’s that time again to wrap up my reading progress for the first half of the year, 2019.
I am ecstatic to report that I read more books than I could ever imagine. I read a total of 80 books in 6 months. That’s a world record for me. I went over my Goodreads reading challenge by 20 books already!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I am at a loss as to what to read next. I have just finished Becoming by Michelle Obama and Where The CrawdadSings by Delia Owens and I not sure what I should delve into next. What do you think?
Great news for book lovers and movie lovers! There’s some really interesting and diverse books to movies this year.
Some diverse genre books to film adaptation include best sellers like The Woman In The Window, Pulitzer Prize winner The Goldfinch, young adult books such as The Sun Is Also AStar, and Artemis Fowl to name a few.
I really outdid myself in reading in the second half of 2018. I read 56 books! This is the most amount of books I have ever done in six months, and I am very chuffed with my new record, so I am giving myself a pat on the back!

I love to read Young Adult (YA) books and it’s great to find a good series to fall in love with. Every few years I discover a new series that I absolutely love.
I do find that I tend to read YA that is in the science fiction or fantasy genre, not the contemporary or romance genre. I find that it can be a hit or miss with YA so I prefer to read books that have been recommended by people I know or highly rated on Goodreads.

Well, in all this time we have not had any monthly wrap ups or updates on what we have been reading, so I thought it would be interesting to list all the books I have personally read since January, 2018 and give a quick line about how I felt about the books.
I am actually surprised by what books I have read, and how many I have read. Making this list is a good way to look back and reflect and see how much I’ve read. I think I may do this again!
I have been much better at logging my reading books with Goodreads. It’s a great way to track what I’ve read because I do literally forget books that I’ve read, especially ones that are not memorable. Continue reading “Midyear Book Update”→
