25+ Books I'm Reading in 2018


One of my personal goals every year is to challenge myself to read a certain number of books. I've been using GoodReads for close to a decade, to set reading challenges, keep book lists of what I want to read, write book reviews, follow what book clubs are reading, and more. This year I really want to spend more of my free time reading, and I've got a good mix of both fiction and nonfiction to occupy me. (Be sure to pin the image below – I'm going to revisit this post to share my brief reviews throughout the year!) Here's what I'm planning to read in 2018.
