Booklist – 2018

I present to you my 2018 Booklist! Again, I will order the books I read based on my rating of each book. Within each star rating, I will list the books alphabetically by title.

Keep checking back as this list will continually be updated!

Reading Goal for 2018: 100 books

At this point in my life, I would like to focus more on quality books (as much as I can) rather than quantity. So, for this year, I have lowered the number of books I would like to read to just 100 in hopes I can experience really good, well-written novels.

Reading Tracker: 100 out of 100 books read!
