2018 reading list

I’ve kept an ongoing reading log here, but I thought I would make a cumulative post to round them all up. I didn’t read as much as I would’ve liked because buying a house and moving, and gestating, and teaching, and writing, and prepping for baby, and having a baby, and recovering, and caring for my baby all took up a lot of time and energy.

I did most of this reading in the first months of 2018. I love reading and hibernating in the winter months. Sadly, I can’t imagine that I’ll get a chance to read much in the coming year(s). My baby requires a lot of care. He’s still up every 1-2 hours in the night, and there’s no sign of that changing any time soon. So, all extra time and energy I have goes to frantically caring for my own basic needs and working as much as possible. I hope I can find a way though because reading is vital to my emotional health and creative wellbeing.

So there they are, in the order they were read:
