It’s already February and I’m just wrapping up 2018. It feels like the new year should start in the spring, not in the dead of winter! It’s hard to gather momentum for a new year when it feels like we should still be huddled in a warm blanket, reading and drinking hot chocolate while eating popcorn and thick creamy soups.
Unfortunately the calendar doesn’t agree and the new year is well under way. 2018 wrapped up with a total of 54 books. This isn’t including all of the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries read nightly to the munchkin! Looking back on this list, it’s obvious that MAGIC was the 2018 reading theme. I’m amazed by the overwhelming number of Jeff Wheeler books on this list and a little blown away by how much of my reading life was spent in Fairy Tales.
2018 felt hard in all dimensions. It was simultaneously emotionally, mentally and physically exhausting professionally, personally and everywhere else too. It makes sense that in a year geared towards destruction my outlet would be in magic and wonder. If my 2019 book choices are any different, 2019 may be focused more on growth and hopefully a little less on destruction!
Until next time, happy reading!
