Like I said last week, I have been doing a lot of reading lately. Below is a list of all the books I have read in the last year. I made a list not only to share my reading habits but also to hold myself accountable to continue reading. My new year’s resolution this year was to read more books, and I think I have achieved that!
Some of them are review copies I received from publishers for free, while others are older books that I reread because of their relevance.
