One of my goals for 2018 was to read more of what I want.
This new year I've curated an eclectic mix of old and new, fiction and non-fiction. This list is by no means set in stone, but a starting point for the year. I hope to get to all of them, but I'm sure to read others that are not listed here as well (my reading list grows faster than I can keep up!). I'll be posting thoughts and reflections on my favorite reads throughout the year.
