Your Ultimate 2019 Reading List

Ban.do notebook, Lioness top (similar), L'Agence jeans

This will be the year I finally get into a good habit of reading. I tend to put it off in favor of magazines, blogs, articles, even the news (depressing)… and I miss a good book in my life. I feel like if we all scrolled through Instagram for 20 minutes less per day, we could finish a few more books a year. Whose with me? Anyone want to start a virtual book club?

Finding book reviews can be overwhelming so I asked all of YOU for your favorite recommendations. Bookmark this post so you can refer back to it! Below is the grand list.
