Books I read in 2024: My Books Reading Journey


Table of Contents

So one of my goals for 2023 was to read at least one book a month. Now I realize that probably sounds ridiculous to any of you avid readers, but the truth is reading isn’t something I’ve had much time for over these past few years. But reading has always been something I wanted, so I made it my goal to set aside time each week to sit down and read. And I have to say, it’s been awesome. I’ve discovered some really great books in the process. So I thought I should share them with you!
