Woooooo! Hello 2019! Last year was such a great year for my reading and I loved what I read. Here is my last batch of books read. I’ll share my final counts below. If a book has a link and one of these little guys * it is an Amazon Affiliate link. That means I’ll get a small percentage if you order it or something else, at no additional cost to you.

The best book I read this year – The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World’s Most Successful People Launched Their Careers*

The second best book I read – You Are a Badass at Making Money: Master the Mindset of Wealth*

The hardest book I read – Death of a Salesman. I have taken great pains to follow my dreams and craft a life that I want. This was hard to read to because of that. It makes me so sad when folks spend their whole lives working towards something to have so little at the end and be filled with much regret.

Favorite New (to me) Author of the year – Charles Martin. I am loving how he writes, especially about marriage. I’m tearing through his catalog and haven’t been even close to disappointed yet.

My favorite reading challenge – Hands down, The Mommy Mannegren 52 Books in 52 Weeks Challenge. Make sure you check out the 2019 challenge!

The 2018 #BWELLREAD Reading Challenge – read 12 out of 12. Completed!
The 2018 Popsugar Reading Challenge – read 31 out of 50.
