2019 Reading List

This is my current 2019 reading list.

I finished 50 books in 2018 and my goal in 2019 is to read at least one book a week, and get into more non-fiction.

I’ve already enjoyed some fantastic books this year. My early favourite was Educated by Tara Westover, until I read Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides – amazing – and now one of my all-time favourite books.

I’m somewhat surprisingly getting through a lot of reading, perhaps at the expense of my writing. I hope to add more links to my reviews here soon.
