2018 Reading List

Every new year is a chance to do things differently and almost everyone jumps on the bandwagon of change. For one month or so, we get good at sticking to new habits. But they tend to fall apart as the year progresses. This year I did something different because we actually have 365 chances to change our lives. So I challenged myself to change habits monthly and to keep building on the layers of good habits. That way change isn’t sudden and overwhelming.
Anyway, I wanted to finally read all of the books that are on my bookshelf this year. As a college student, I never had the time to sit down and actually read a book. But as that journey ends, I have more time to do the things I love-like reading. These are the books on my shelf (and on my phone) that I haven’t read and will be focusing on this year. And as I finish them I’ll be crossing them off the list. This also means I won’t be getting any new books until I finish these. Guess I have to start reading.
On my shelf:
