End Of The Year Wrap Up.

The Diverse Reader End Of The Year Wrap Up Blog Post

I ended up reading a total of 79 books this year and I just want to scream because I am so proud of myself. This is my first year of actually keeping up with my number when it comes to books that I completed. I was able to read books from different genres but also from my favorite genres like poetry. I wanted to showcase all of the books that I ended up reading this and overtime I will probably write a review for each one or making a small book review on my Instagram. The books will not be in any particular order based on likeness but will be written in the order of my Goodreads. You can follow me on my Goodreads account by clicking here.

My 2018 year of reading was very diverse and gave me a chance to read books from different age groups to genres. I was able to realize recommended books that I enjoyed, authors to check out next year and authors I do not like anymore. I purchased books and rented books from the library but I think I will be spending next year with only books that I have already purchased and a few from the library. I enjoyed my year of reading but I must admit that I am intrigued about next year!
