The Final Tally: The 52 Books The Book Smuggler’s Den Read In 2018

WooHoo! 2018 has come to a close and so is the reading challenge. It was a push at the end but some downtime over the weekend allowed me to finish up the last book needed to complete my goal. In 2017 I made little time to read and wanted to change that. I’m so excited that I made myself reevaluate how I spend my time and get the chance to support authors in all different genres.

Although I didn’t have time to review all of these, I had a blast challenging myself to read a set number of books this year. As the snow falls outside, I think these next couple of days are as good as any to get a jump start on next year’s challenge.

I’m excited to announce that I have had several authors contact me about reviewing their books. I am always looking for good reads to promote here, on social media, on Goodreads, and on Amazon. If you are interested in having your book reviewed, please contact me.
