Book Nook | Book reviews | Goodreads reading challenge 2019

While I didn’t make it a resolution, I still set myself a reading challenge for 2019. The aim is to finish at least 60 books by the end of the year. (Stretch goal is 100 but I’ll settle for 60.)

Fancy a review of “Get Your Shit Together”, Sarah Knight’s new book? Of course you do. The press release describes it as “giddily profane, immensely useful, and surprisingly powerful”.

You’re better than that, Bruce).It should go without saying but expect swearing.(This post contains Amazon affiliate links which means I may earn a teeny tiny commission if you buy through them.
