2019 Reading Goals

Greetings and Happy New Year! Between all the holiday stuff the last few weeks, plus all the writing I’ve been doing, I feel like I’ve been a tad neglectful of my blog lately. Hopefully, now that the holiday season is over, I’ll find more time to write some fun posts.

I mentioned back in November that I had already reached my goal of 40 books for my Goodreads challenge. By the end of the year I managed to complete 45 books. (I’m currently in the middle of two others, but I’m not counting those, since I haven’t finished them.) Check out all the books I completed last year:




Aren’t they beautiful?

For 2019, my goal is to read 47 books. Realistically, I know that I can probably squeeze in a few more than that, but I don’t want to set the bar too high and stress myself out.

As of right now, I don’t have any other reading goals set for myself or the blog. The biggest goal I’m focused on is getting the first draft of my book done…which it almost is. 🙂

What kinds of goals are you setting for yourself and/or your blog this year?

      1. It does feel like a long time, but it kind of makes you forget everything you wrote. When you finally do get back to it, it’s like you’re reading someone else’s work. Myself, I wait 6 weeks minimum. During that time, I’ll write a draft of something else or bang out some short stories that have been on my mind.

      2. I know. It’s awful. There’s a ton of waiting in this game. Just wait. If you ever get to the point where you’re sending agent query letters, you send off an email and wait like a month just to get a response, which (in my personal experience) is always a ‘no thanks!’
