2019 To Be Read

My Goodreads Challenge for this year is 50 books – 2018 was the first time that I’ve ever met this total, so I’m hoping to beat it for 2019.

Here are some of the ones I have lined up – I’ll definitely be getting through the NetGalley ones, the older physical ones may take a little longer …
