2018 Reading Wrap-Up | Goals, Favorite Reads, and Top Releases I Meant To Read.

Happy New Years' Eve! I can't believe 2018 is nearly over. This year went by so quickly. There were some amazing releases and I added several books to my TBR.

I had four bookish goals for 2018. I'm happy to say that I completed all of them!

  • Get NetGalley ratio to 65%. 
  • Finish at least 12 nonfiction books (hopefully 1 each month).
  • Finish at least 5 series.
  • Finish at least 20 Love Inspired books.
The toughest one for me was, unsurprisingly, the NetGalley ratio goal. I just made it to 65% this month and hope to just keep adding to that.

Favorite Reads of 2018:

I read over 260 books, so it is a bit difficult to pick favorites...but I managed to pick my top 20 reads of 2018. :)

2018 Releases I Meant To Read...But Haven't Yet.

Like every year, there were some releases that I meant to read, but time got away from me. These are the top ones on my TBR...I will read them ASAP in the new year!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
