Reading List 2018

I have a reading goal of 60 books in 2018. This is a running list of the titles I have read to date. Click on the titles below to read my review.

Quite an interesting mix. I’ve had a run on Agatha Christie, an Ian McEwan binge (set to continue) and a crush on the classics. My favourite book of the year so far is Anna Karenina.

I’ve rated a lot of 4 and 5 ⭐️ but I think that’s because I am being quite choosey in what I’m reading. Only the good stuff. I’m working through my What To Read Next List but it only seems to grow longer?!
