This post contains affiliate links.  For the past several years, especially through the pandemic, I read 30 or more books each year.  I anticipated being able to read even more as the girls got older.  However, I got a new job in February which has me working 20 hours a week.  Coupling that with this blog and my other job, and I’m working 25 hours most weeks.  Plus homeschooling (though the girls are largely independent now) and driving them to their activities.  It’s a lot, so for the next few years, I’ll need to reduce my reading load.  Still, a girl likes to dream, so here’s the books I want to read in 2024:
