20 Books for 2018: an eclectic list of books on my “try these” list for 2018.
Another year, another reading list. Or is it just me?
There’s something about a fresh new year that inspires me to create a list of books I want to tackle. I’m learning to understand myself a bit better, though — instead of saying “I’m going to read all these books in 2018,” I’m saying, “Here is a list of books I want to draw from in my personal reading in 2018.” I know I’ll dip in and out of this list.
I’m betting there will be a few that I don’t like all that much, and I may abandon them halfway through. New releases will catch my eye and edge out the list for a little while, I’m sure.
But all of that is okay. This is simply a list of books that I’d like to read, but I’m going to stay flexible.
I have a mix of fiction and nonfiction. Some books relate to our homeschool journey, some are for personal growth and learning, and many of them are just plain for fun. Some will be easier reads than others. Some are aimed at the middle school market. Some are academic, while some are…well…fluffy. A couple were on my list last year, but I never got around to reading them. Some are new, and some are old.
Bottom line: there is no theme here. Just books from my shelves or my Kindle that look good to me right now. Maybe there’s something on this list for you as well.
