Books to Read in 2018 // Lacey Reads

One of my goals is so always continue learning and for me the easiest ways to do that is hands-on and reading. The last two years I’ve set goals for 40 books. This year I thought about setting a bigger goal, but I’m sticking with the 40. GoodReads helps me keep track of things and they have a little yearly challenge setting. If you’re interested in book reviews, suggestions, or keeping up with what you’d like to read, I would suggest you check out the website or the app!

My “want to read” list is currently at 141 books and growing. Authors are writing way faster than I can read but I’ll eventually get to the important ones. Or not. 

So what am I hoping to read in 2018? Here’s my list so far which will be adjusted as new books are released.
