2019 Reading Goals & Book List

My birthday was last week so while this should have been posted the first of the year, I sometimes like to think of my birthday as the start of my year.  Just an excuse!

I thought long and hard about my goals for 2019 since I didn’t quite get to the number I wanted last year and I realized that I didn’t want it to be about the number, but about the books.  That being said, I still wanted to strive for something.  So a more realistic number of books, a goal to read new books, continue blogging and to try out audiobooks!  I don’t usually listen to books despite a longish commute (mainly because I’m afraid that if I listen while driving, I’ll pay more attention to the reading) but I hear so many wonderful things so I’m giving it a try.  I kept the number low in case I really don’t like them but we’ll see how it goes.

Like 2018, I’m going to track my books here (and on Goodreads) so you can always check out what I’ve read and I’ll link to the books I blog about!  Here are my goals:
