Books I Read in 2019

I was hoping to read 19 books in 2019 and I came up short with 17. That’s pretty close though! Thanks to Lindsey & Christine and their podcast (which you should be listening to!), I started reading more in the fall. When I got in bed, I would put down my phone and pick up my Kindle or my book. Reading is so much more beneficial than mindless scrolling and I’m hoping to continue this in 2020.

My reading interests are all over the place. I like chick-lit, non-fiction, crime, fiction, faith based, self-help, you name it.
