Yearly Wrap Up- 2019

Wow, was 2019 a year or reading for me. It was the year I read the most books (101!), a year or discovering new genres I didn’t normally read, new authors, new favorite books, bookish friends, bookish life experiences, and so much more! I am also posting this on the 2 year anniversary of me blogging! If you told me even 5 years ago that I would be where I am today in the book world, blogging, working at my dream job, and reading the books I’m reading, I would have told you that you had the wrong person. I HATED writing and would cry when I had to write papers. I was also deep into my Nancy Drew phase and didn’t want to read anything other than those 64 books that I knew like the back of my hand. And, I thought romance books and contemporary books were no good. If I was going to read anything other than Nancy, it was going to be fantasy or mystery. None of this “happy ending” “real life” nonsense. Also, the authors I were reading were all very White. I am very glad that I have branched out into reading more diverse and female authors!

Anyways, since I read so MANY books this year, I am just going to be listing them with no mini reviews (but I will be linking my monthly wrap ups, which have mini reviews and if applicable, linked regular reviews to the book I read!)
