Books Read in January 2019!

Did I ever tell you that I LOVE TO READ?! Well, I do. You can tell by how many books I read in January 2019, the first month of the new year. My goal for the year is 95. Do you think I will make it?

I want to share the books that I read this month (12). There were enjoyable reads by talented authors. Thank you to all these authors for publishing such a wonderful selection of books.

Check out next month for what I will read. I don’t think I will read as many as this month because I plan to write more but I will do my best to make a dent in my overflowing TBR list on my Kindle and Nook apps.

Here they are along with my reviews on Goodreads:
