Every Book I Read in 2019

2019 was the first year since 2013 that I didn’t surpass my reading goal. I read 120 books in 2018 and set my reading goal for 2019 as 100 books. Sadly I only read 91 books in 2019, so I was a little bit disappointed, but I know 91 books is still an insane number of books and I had a really busy year!

Sorry if you’re not interested, but I like to publish this list for personal reasons and so that I have a record of what I read. I keep a separate page every year to track my books, so I’ll be updating it shortly for 2020 if you’re interested. In the meantime, here’s everything I read in 2019:

    What a list! Maybe it didn’t quite meet your goal, but the books you did read look fantastic. I loved Born a Crime, Becoming, Queenie, Daisy Jones and so many more! I’m looking forward to many of the others on this list as well.
