I closed off the year by completing a grand total of 39 books! That was 9 more than I had originally intended to complete, which I’m honestly quite proud of. Upon reflection, I realize that there are quite a few trilogies and series’ that make up the list, but because this challenge was something of an inaugural challenge, I read anything and everything that I felt like reading.

I hope to diversify my list once I embark upon the 2020 challenge, although I don’t think there’s anything wrong with dipping my toes back into comfortable waters. Nevertheless, here’s to the next challenge!
