Jen’s 2018 shelf

My goal for 2018 is the same as last year: 125 books. Below you’ll find a list of books I’ve read thus far. When reviews are available, I’ll add hyperlinks to the reviews. I won’t be reviewing every book, so if there is a book you would like me to review that doesn’t have either a hyperlink or the phrase “review coming” next to it, just request the review.
