2019 New Years' Resolution Reading List

Happy New Year, my friends!

Every year, I outline my goals and resolutions for the next 12 months. Then come December of that year, I review them to see how I did. Well this year, I seem to have misplaced my 2019 goals… I’m thinking a 2020 goal should be to keep track of and review my resolution list throughout the year 😂 What do you think?

Anyway, one of the goals I do remember setting was to read two books a month - one fiction and one non-fiction. 24 books a year, easy peasy, right?

Well easier said than done and, while I did read 24 books, it was definitely two-thirds fiction. Whoops.

There’s just something about non-fiction that I have a hard time engaging with, but I know the importance of educating myself on different topics. So with that said, if there are any non-fiction books that need to make my 2020 list, let me know below! I’m taking recommendations and looking to start the year off strong.

Take a look below at the books I completed in 2019!
