End of the Year Reading Recap: 3rd and 4th Quarter reads

I slacked off in my reading in the second part of the year. 


Who knows how great my final number could have been if I kept up my beginning of the year pace.


But life happens.


I will say this was a great year in books for me. I read some amazing stories that I am very happy about.


I am especially pleased with the sheer number of Black romance stories I was able to read this year.

I also realize that some books are missing but charge that to my unorganized brain navigating my Goodreads shelves.


My goal for next year is more of the same but on a more consistent level. 


Hope you check out some of these great writers who have kept me company this year!
