The Books I Read in 2018
So, this year, I finally read (and finished!) the Harry Potter series for the first time and it reignited in me a love of learning & storytelling. While I filled a lot of that with my nutrition school studying, I managed to strike an alright balance of also reading actual books and listening to a few eBooks as well.
Here is the short list of books I read in 2018, followed by what I’m reading now, and what’s next for 2019. I’d love your recommendations in the comments! Bonus points for books written by/about influential women.
Books Read in 2018
The Complete Harry Potter Series, J.K. Rowling (I don’t remember which book I was on when the New Year came around, so let’s just acknowledged that by about February, I’d finished the whole series. LOVE.)
The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life & Business, Charles Duhigg
I refer back to this book ALL THE TIME, especially with my clients.
Girl, Wash Your Face, Rachel Hollis
a little oversimplified, but still a good read and inspired me to go a little easier on myself, embrace my quirks, and dial up my strengths
Bag of Meat on Ball of Dirt, Mara Altman
Sparkle, Mara Altman
The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman
Hitchhikers’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
I plan to read the rest of these in 2019!
The Wildwood Chronicles, Colin Meloy
I actually started this series a few years ago and never finished, so I’m coming back to this one.
Becoming, Michelle Obama
Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain
I’ve never really set a reading goal or challenge for myself over the course of a year, and this year I’m going to change that. Considering the low amount of books I read in 2018 (and again, the bulk of the reading I did was curriculum-related), I’m going to start with a realistic goal of reading 24 books (audio, kindle, or physical book) in 2019. Recommendations are welcome!
