Goodreads Challenge Closeout 2019

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. Or that we are about to embark on another! While 2020 feels like it snuck up on us, 2019 was a really good year for reading (even if December ended up keeping me from really reading), making this post feel good instead of like ratting myself out lol. It also is a good chance for me to see how well I stuck to my goal of review all the books I read, which besides Falling Kingdoms series, I did really well. If anyone was looking for a review on that one, I am so sorry! I really did enjoy the series (and binge read it!), but somehow I still didn’t write a review? Other than that awkward fail, I did really well this year! If you are interested in the books I picked up and read, or looking for a review check out the list below, and keep an eye out on my homepage (click on the home banner above), or the reviews page for more of my reviews!
