30 books in 2018


Book nerds everywhere are likely grabbing a pen and way too excited to see a list of books to add to their already too-long list. I know I do the same thing when I see a list so no shame.

The list of books I actually read compared to my list for each year are embarrassingly different but I still love to share because these are the books piquing my interest right now that you might like too! Also, this is technically 40 instead of 30 because y’all suggested a ton of good ones on this post!
