Today's Prescription: My 2019 Booklist

Happy Tuesday boos & baes! Since I was a kid, reading has been one of my favorite hobbies. I don't know if ya'll took the Accelerated Reading tests back in elementary school, but the competiveness of those exams helped me to discover my love for reading a good novel. I slacked off in 2018, but this year, I'm getting back to the books. I've set a fun goal to read 19 books and the entire Bible here by December 31, 2019. 

Now, I like to indulge in a little bit of everything, unless it's a Stephen King novel. I love a good story, and it's nothing like getting so invested in a book, that you don't want it to end. I've listed all 19 books below, and I have some extras because I'm claiming to exceed my expectations. Some of the books haven't been released yet, but are available for preorder. Ya'll know I've got you covered with release dates. I know I'm late to the game on some of these, (don't roast me) so if you have any suggestions, please let me know below. Here's to crushing fun goals. Happy Reading nerds!

I love ya'll, be blessed, & stay fab!
