2019 Reading List

reading list

My current reading list for the year.

I finished 50 books in 2018 and this year I plan to read at least one book a week including more non-fiction.

I’ve read some fantastic books so far. My early favourite was Educated by Tara Westover. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides is amazing. And if you’re looking for a really good story then The Nix and The Overstory are both brilliant.

The links on titles in the reading list below are to my reviews – will be adding more soon.
