I just realized I haven't posted my year in books for two years.  I read 40 books with a goal of 40 books in 2018, and read 34 books with a goal of 40 books in 2019.

2018 was the year I started reading the Red Rising saga by Pierce Brown.  I think it is really well done and it was definitely my favorite book from that year.  I also finished up Bleach which was a series that I have been reading for a very long time, I will miss it.  My surprise of the year was Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  My wife read the book and really liked it and gave it to me.  I read the description and did not think I was going to like it, but I read it anyway.  I am glad I did, it is a great story in a well created world.

I think 2019 is the first year since I started that I did not reach my reading goal. I really enjoyed The Stand graphic novels, it had been a really long time since I read the original story and the comics reminded me why I have such fond memories of the book.  I also read A Dance with Dragons which I had been holding on to for a couple years because I did not want the Game of Thrones to be over.  It lived up to the hype and just made me, like everyone else, eager for the way too long awaited next installment.

Let's see if I can remember to get this post out sometime in 2021.
