BFR (5)

It’s that time of the year again when us bookworms get the chance to look back on what kind of reading year it has been and rank our favorites! This 2018, I was lucky enough to read a total of 72 books—surpassing my initial goal of 70—and I’ve been blessed to work with and help promote so many books from various publishers. And unlike so many of my friends, I’m proud to say that I still haven’t outgrown reading and young adult literature, and I hope that the year ahead only intensifies this wholesome obsession. Anyway, I’ve written a long recap about how much I enjoyed 2018 in terms of reading, and so read on, my friends.
