52 Books To Make 2019 Your Most Literary Year Yet

Goals are so fun. A blast and a half, if you will. Resolutions on the other hand — those are game changes. Those are supposed to change your life. They deserve a huge party, snacks, glitter, fun party hats, a disco ball…thank goodness that plan is already well underway.

Needless to say, one of the resolutions I’ve heard the most, specifically amongst gals in their twenties, is “read more.” Sounds good, right? Sure. But the thing about goals is that you need some sort of metric to actually know what you’re accomplishing. Thus, 52 books for 52 weeks of the year. If you want to choose 1/4 so you can read a book a month, by all means. Just get that library card out (or have Amazon delivery directly to your door) and get reading!
