Hey y’all! Happy new year!!
It’s been a hot minute! How is everyone doing? How was 2018 for you? It was quite dramatic for me to say the least but it ended with a bang! If you’re following me on Instagram you already know what I’m talking about and if you’re not then ask yourself if this is really how you want to start your 2019.
I read 60 books last year (59 actual books plus the one my fiancé made for me. Yes he made a picture book with the story of how we met and basically our journey together so far. If that isn’t the most romantic thing ever! )
So let’s get to it shall we? I read a total of 60 books like I mentioned earlier. Here is a mini breakdown. Out of the 60 books, 7 were Nonfiction, 53 fiction.
15 books by African authors,
37 books by female authors
19 books by male authors
18 Audiobooks and 19 ebooks.
From this breakdown, it is apparent I like audiobooks and ebooks just as much if not more than paperbacks. Oh and whooosh! I clearly have a thing for female writers!
So out of all 60 books I read, four books stuck out to me and I’m sure I’ll probably reread them in the nearest future. The four books are;
1. Educated by Tara Westover
2. Beartown by Fredrick Backman
3. The book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill
4. Born a crime by Trevor Noah
Guys! You really should get these books and read them. I laughed a lot, almost cried, screamed and giggled while reading them.
I’m excited and a bit nervous about 2019 but I know and trust that God will handle everything so I’m chilling.
I plan to read 60 books this year and that’s because I have professional exams coming up, wedding planning (still feels weird saying this) and a whole lot to do this year by God’s grace. I’m putting zero pressure on myself to read 60 books. If I end up reading more, Awesome! If I don’t, awesome!
So here’s to reading more books and taking each day as it comes!
Have you started any book this year?
How’s the new year treating you so far?
