One of my favorite things to do at year’s end is look back on all the reading I’ve done and decide which books were my very favorite. It’s both impossible to choose favorites and impossible not to love doing it!
I keep track of everything I read in a simple reading journal which makes it really easy to remember what I read even a year ago. It turns out I’ve read nearly 100 books this year (!!!).
If you’re curious about how I found time to read so much, you’ll find my best tips for reading more (even when you’re super busy) in episode 70 of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast. If reading more is high on your priority list for 2018, give it a listen.
Over the next couple of weeks… I’m going to be posting some other favorites (like “best cover” AND “a book that made me laugh out loud” over on Instagram. Wanna join me? Make sure you’re following the Read-Aloud Revival on Instagram so you don’t miss the posts, and then you can play along!)
Without further ado…
