End of Year & December Wrap-up

Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe that we are already in 2019? I honestly can’t! I have the feeling that we’re still stuck in January 2018 but nope it’s already January 2019!

As you see I’m pretty confused but nevermind! We are in 2019 and here is my wrap-up of the year 2018. Which I’m glad is finally over. It was, however, a great reading year for me but also pretty stressful and I’m so glad to start a new year! Even if the stress stays but I can probably manage that one better! At least I hope so!

And now without further ado let’s start with this post! (I’m not showing you a picture of every book as it will be way too long)

And these are all the books I’ve read last year! I’ve read 78 books and 27173 pages. I’m still amazed by that number as I thought that I would only read like 30 books but never 78!! So yeah you can say that I had a pretty good reading year! However I am so ashamed by the fact that I haven’t written all these reviews! There are so many books that I’ve read in 2018 and I have only written a few reviews. I will try to do better in 2019!

How about you? How many books have you read in 2018? Please let me know in the comments below!


*These books were sent to me by the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review
