Books of 2018

Claims of not being a book blogger aside, I do read a lot and me and a couple of friends always make and use our own book bingo card every year. This year I made us three. I’m not going to be 100% on updating this page, but hopefully I’ll come back every now and then and add what I’ve read since.

And if someone happened to come upon this page and want to borrow these, you can! Just link back to me.
