Six Great Books To Read This Year

I am proud to say that one New Year’s resolution I have followed is to read more books. At the beginning of the year, I made a list of a lot of books that I wanted to jump into but did not read because of the usual excuses (no time being the biggest).

Here is a quick summary of all of the books that I have read so far this year.

Drum roll, please. Here is my list of books for 2019 (so far).
