Aarini’s fave reads in 2018!

(Note from Asha: This is being posted by me on behalf of my childoo Aarini, aka #the11yearold)

This year I read a lot of books (my Mom doesn’t think so, though!).  No matter how much I try to convince her that I do read, she doesn’t believe me. Does your Mom do that to you too?

Okay, so these are the books that I enjoyed reading the most in 2018. Some we bought, some we already had and some we borrowed from the school and Pato Public Library. I also have this habit of re-reading the books that I really love like all the Wimpy Kid books.
