2018 Reading List

Read More Book Club

Here is my completed 2018 reading list. I had a reading goal of 60 books this year and I finished 50. I became a new mum in August so it has been a bit harder to get time for reading! So I’m pretty happy with 50 which includes War and Peace.

I really enjoyed the mix and quality of books I read this year, including 6 Hugo Award Winners, 4 Man Booker Winners, and 2 Pulitzer Prize Winners.

Of the 50 books on my 2018 reading list, I rated 23 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and 23 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️. I read 24 on my Kindle, 21 paperbacks and 5 Audible books. All these stats make me want to add some pie charts.. maybe next year.
