2018 Reads

My yearly post of books read.  I was disappointed at the end of last year in noticing that I didn't quite read as much as the year before.... however with other goals this year like my sewing through 2018, along with 4 kids and a new job, I wasn't sure that I would do any better this year.  Alas, here we are though, in no certain order, the books completed in 2018.

My Reads:

"More Than Just Making It" by Erin Odom
 "Far From the Tree" by Robin Benway
 "Red Scarf Girl" by Ji-li Jiang
 "Sisters First" by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush
 "Fit to Burst" by Rachel Jankovic
 "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L'Engle
 "Rethinking School" by Susan Wise Bauer
"Just Open the Door" by Jen Schmidt
"Crispin: The Cross of Lead" by Avi
"A Wind in the Door" by Madeleine L'Engle
"The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson
"The Great Alone" by Kristin Hannah
"The Masterpiece" by Francine Rivers
"Educated" by Tara Westover
"Bear Town" by Fredrick Backman
"The Dyslexic Advantage" by Brock L. Eide

I decided to add in this year, a list of read aloud books that I read with the kids this year too.  Of course there were several short stories along the way too, but these were the larger volumes that we delve into through the year.

Read aloud with the kids:

"The Hardy Boys" Volumes 1-12
"The Prince Warriors" Trilogy by Priscilla Shirer (Read all 3)
"The Winter War" by Priscilla Shirer
"My Life As a Smashed Burrito with Extra Hot Sauce" by Bill Myers  (There are more to this set that we might jump into next year.)

And an Audiobook list too.... because in my humble opinion, audiobooks ARE reading too.  I fully anticipated more audiobooks through the year, but the kids are pretty hooked on listening to "Adventures in Odyssey." (Though we only have 3 volumes of AIO left.  Oh my!)

Audiobooks (with the kids) :
"The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" by CS Lewis

.... time to start my 2019 list.
