This year for my 2019 Reading Challenge post I thought I’d change it up a little bit and group things in a way I haven’t before.
Typically I group either by genre or list in the order I read them in. Check out my old reading challenges here!
In 2019 I’ve decided to use the prompt: What do I want to pick up if I’m looking for…
Though I’ve met my goal of 50 books this year, you’ll see less than that below. Why? I’m only including books on this list that I really recommend. Want to see the rest of my 2019 Reading Challenge? Head over to my Goodreads account.
