18 Books for Your 2018 Reading List

18 Books for Your 2018 Reading List

I seriously LOVE reading. That being said, it’s also one of the easiest things to toss to the side when I’m feeling ‘way too busy’. I often make the excuse that I don’t have time to read but whenever I do make the time, I’m reminded how much I enjoy it. I love to start or end my day reading at least a chapter. A conversation I had with one of my best friends recently inspired me to get my list down on paper (or share it with the internet) so I have it as a resource to return to when I'm not sure what to read next. I hope it's a resource for you, as well!

If you’re like me and reading more is on your list of goals for 2018, this post is for you. I compiled a list of 18 books for 2018 in hopes that I can recommend some good reads to you, you’ll share your list with me and maybe we can even read some together (I’d love to - and unless anyone is opposed, am planning on - starting a Book Club here on my blog this year too)!

You'll notice there aren't many fiction books on my list. I enjoy those every once in awhile but the books below are more my jam. I love to learn. I'm not sure I would have said that back when I was in school, but when it's about faith, entrepreneurship, relationships... I can't get enough. Below are 18 books that I can't wait to soak up this year. Some are new, some have been on my list for years and all come with rave reviews that have me ready to flip through the pages.
