2019 Bookish Resolutions

My 2018 bookish resolutions were to continue working on the list of series and standalones I had created two years ago. Well….I want to say I failed but that would mean that I made NO progress, which isn’t the case. I was only a small percent successful is how I’ll choose to frame it.

Series to continue: 19% progress made

Standalones: 8% progress made

ARCs read in 2018: 7

Reading and reviewing ARCs was a new adventure last year and while I enjoyed it, I think I’ll slow down with it in 2019.

This brings me to my bookish resolutions for the New Year:



For this reason I will be drastically scaling back on the Goodreads Yearly Reading Challenge. I missed the mark on that this past year too. So, 25 will be this year’s goal so there is hardly any pressure to read anything that isn’t a doorstop.

I don’t do resolutions outside of books because I almost never keep them BUT I am really looking forward to things we have planned in 2019. Another vacation, more home renovation. sky diving, etc.

What are your big plans for 2019?? (Book related or not.)

  1. I haven’t done a book goals post yet, and honestly might not, but I want to start a couple of series that I’ve been dying to read. My reading is almost 100 % ARCs so I want to break out of that this year. And yay for home improvement projects!

    1. Thanks! That is essentially what I’m doing. I don’t HAVE to only read epic fantasies, but I need to put a dent in the ones I own. I made a list the other day to just see how I do. I own 22 door stoppers of that genre. Some of them have been patiently waiting on the shelves for years, so this is their year…..hopefully. πŸ˜› (I’m a mood reader so I can never guarantee anything.)
