For 2019, I set 30 books as my Goodreads Reading Challenge. But, even until the beginning of December, I only read 18 books. I still need to read 12 more books if I want to hit my 2019 reading goal. In order to do it, I plan to read three books per week. I know it sounds like an ambitious plan, but I just want to try if I can make it.
I picked up these books out of random, but turn out they have similar themes which are historical and time travel. These are three books I plan to read for the 2nd week of December.
