2018 Reading List

I have this problem — the first step is admitting that, right? It’s this thing where I continuously buy books even though I know there is no way I’ll get through them all in the span of a year, yet I continue to build my personal library. In all honesty, there are far worse addictions that I could have than buying books (I know, I know, this is just me justifying it to myself).

My love for books and reading began at a young age. I would “read” books to my  then-infant brother Owen as a toddler, and force my parents and grandparents to read to me since I couldn’t read myself. I still remember the very first book I learned to read in kindergarten about a firefighter and his Dalmatian — ironic now that I’m dating a firefighter, amiright?! I even have a list of places I want to visit just to see the resident library; the Biltmore Estate being one I checked off my list this past year (you can see this post here). Additionally, you can bet that I’m always carrying a book on me for when I have down time or during my lunch period at work.


Thank God for boyfriends who take great candids! Shoutout to Ry for snapping this during one of our many Italian train rides.

This year, I’ve made it a priority to get through those books that I own that I have yet to touch THEN and only then will I allow myself to purchase more … Oh who am I kidding?!? We all know that I’ll be buying more as soon as I discover a new book I want to get my hands on! As you’ll see below, I have a huge soft spot for historical fiction (i.e. Outlander die-hard over here!), but I’m open to various genres. Here are the primary books I have on my list to read this year:

Outlander Series: On A Breath of Snow and Ashes // Diana Gabaldon

Outlander Series: An Echo in the Bone // Diana Gabaldon

The Room on Rue Amélie // Kristin Harmel

Love & Luck // Jenna Evans Welch

The Thousandth Floor // Katharine McGee

A Fine Imitation // Amber Brock

The Heiresses // Sara Shephard

Beautiful Ruins // Jess Walter

America’s First Daughter: A Novel // Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie
