Books I Read in 2018

Hello! It's my once a year blog post! 😊  This year, as I do every year, I make a goal to read 52 books. This year I went above and beyond and read 56 books! I probably could've read more but I took the month of December off to watch Hallmark Christmas movies.
This is the first year in a long time, I didn't have a book that I absolutely loved. I really enjoyed a lot of books, but none of them wowed me. I also read quite a few okay books, and a couple boring books that did nothing for me.

I use the Goodreads star system to rate my books.  5 stars being the best, 1 being the worst.
