My Year in Books 2019

For the past 3 years, I have set myself a challenge on Goodreads, each year I have done pretty well I would say! I’m not one of those who set massive Goals, for me they always have to be realistic.

Once I’ve reflected on last year, I’ll be moving ahead to 2020 and setting this year Goodreads Challenge.

At the beginning of 2019, I set myself the Goal of reading 20 books.

Unfortunately, 2019 was not my year for books, I was only able to read 7 books, 8 less than the year before.

[AD GIFTED]

Here we go, my first blog book tour in what seems like forever! I know I’ve been slacking on these, but recently there has been nothing I wanted to read.

I cannot wait to share my reviews with you.

I’m excited to be a part of this blog book tour, it’s crazy how much you miss something until it reappears back in your life. Today, I am reviewing Collection of the Negatives by Violet St. Karl, on the fifth and final day of the blog book tour hosted by R&R Book Tours. I am also sharing the blog book tour with Port Jerricho (Review)Eclectic Review (Review) and J Bronder Book Reviews (Review) , please give them some love!

Before we start my review and what I thought, let’s read the book bio for background context.
