Book List of 2018

I love to read.  It's something I would get into trouble for when I was younger because I would do it when I was supposed to be sleeping...  I would sit by my night light and say to myself, "Just one more chapter!" and be so engrossed in the pages that I wouldn't hear my parents coming to my door.  I'd like to say I grew out of that habit but Benjamin can contest that there are many nights when he heads to bed that I say, "I'll just finish this chapter" and then 3 hours later I'm waaaaay passed my one more chapter! 😂 When my original Kindle died this year, he upgraded me to a Paperwhite Kindle which has a lit screen feature.  I wasn't sure I'd use the screen light until he pointed out that he bought it specifically with that feature so that he could fall asleep without the my side lamp blinding him!

For my #saras35things list, I set a goal to read two books a month.  Right now {as of Oct, 30} my count is up to 44 books!  I think I more than knocked that goal outta the park!  

Instead of writing up what I thought about each book, I marked my very favorites with emojis and the ones that aren't marked were all books that I enjoyed and are worth a read!  

Let me know if you have read any of these and what your thoughts are!  Also, if you have any recommendations, send them my way.  I have discovered the joy of borrowing digital copies from my library and am hooked!
