I’ve loved reading for as long as I can remember- just like my mother. Now that I work full-time, I find I don’t read as often as I’d like. That being said, I still purchase books regularly, and receive books as gifts, so I find myself with so many books and not enough time to read them all! I figured, if I made this list of 10 books I plan to read in 2019, it might give me a goal and I can begin to work through my pile of un-read books.
For this list, I chose 5 fiction and 5 non-fiction books, because I love to alternate between them. Does anyone else do this?
I am just finishing up reading Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert at the moment, so stay tuned for a review on that coming shortly!

10 Books I Plan to Read in 2019
“Kick ass, claim your woman card, and crush everyday sexism.” – This book was a gift from a friend, and I can’t wait to dive into it.
These are the sequels to The Giver, by Lois Lowry, which I have already read twice, and watched the movie! Can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
This book is written specifically about the DSLR camera that I already own, so I am looking forward to learning more about what it can do!
I love reading any book that has been made into a movie! This novel by Alice Sebold was made into a feature film with actress Saoirse Ronan, and even though it is from 10 years ago, I have yet to see it! I am excited to read the book and then watch the movie.
A few months ago, my mother was watching a TV show that featured author and entrepreneur Areva Martin. My mom said she had such incredible wisdom and that she thought the content would be right up my alley. My mom was kind enough to gift me this book and it might be one of the first ones I read out of my 10 books I plan to read in 2019.
A friend of mine read this book and went to a book signing with Lena Dunham. I have heard so many good things about it, so when I saw it at a thrift shop, in perfect condition, I knew I had to buy it!
I received this book a couple months ago as a Christmas gift, and have already read the first couple chapters. I am really enjoying it so far- it definitely goes into more depth than your average cook book!
This book is my most recent purchase. It was on the “Top Books of 2018” list on Indigo (where I buy most of my books), and the synopsis really peaked my interest. Definitely excited to read this one, too!
As you can see from my list, my favourite books to read are non-fiction books about empowerment, and fiction books that have a bit of mystery, or a dystopian plot. I also have a photography book and a cooking book thrown in there, as those are skills I wish to improve this year!
