Tips for How to Read More Books

I am what you might call an avid reader. I tend to read into the 100’s of books per year. This year in particular, I have set myself an extra challenge of reading 150 books in a year (the most I have ever gotten has been 132). I am currently at 92 books for the year…and it is only July. 🤯

Sometimes you don’t want to invest all of your reading time into a long series. This is where stand-alones are the perfect thing to pick up!

Here are some of my favorite stand-alone novels!

Fantastic Audiobooks for You to Read!

There is a bit of a debate amongst readers about whether audiobooks actually count as reading. In my opinion, they absolutely do! You are listening to the book, yes, but you are still receiving and retaining the story or information just as you would with a physical book. I didn’t start getting into audiobooks until a few years ago, and now they comprise a large portion of my reading each year!

If you are new to audiobooks, or are just looking for new ones to listen to, then this list is a good place to start! These are some of my favorite audiobooks that I have ever read:
