Though I’m still tweaking my 2019 goals, one is to read at least 20 books. With that in mind, I recently joined Goodreads because the department I work in has a sub-group. The are voracious readers and I’m loving seeing what everyone has read and is reading. We also (finally) got our couch and I’m looking forward to drinking many cups of tea while cozied up with a book.

Books I listened to in 2018
I discovered the joy of audio books in 2018 because I was needing something to get me through my days at work in Vancouver. Books I listened to and that you absolutely should as well(!):
What I read in 2018
A big physical book highlight for me was The Soul of Money by Lynn Twist. I heard her on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday podcast and immediately went and bought the book because it spoke to me in my quest to imporve my relationship with money.

My 2019 reading list (so far)
I’m already in the middle of a few and have completed Nora Roberts’ (my absolute favourite author, ever) Of Blood and Bone.
My list has a token male author, but otherwise I’m all about the girl power this year. That being said, I might sneak Stephen Fry’s Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold off the Brit’s shelf as he doesn’t get through books as quickly. (I have the advantage of being a transit commuter.) Books need to entertain, teach, and/or make me feel.
What are you reading this year? Would love some recommendations as I still need to have to fill a few slots to hit my goal! Comment below or follow my reading challenge on Goodreads!
