2019 Reading Plans

Time to look forward and make plans for the new year. I’ve already started doing so for my personal life, so now I’d like to focus on my bookish life.

I anticipate being a bit busier this year, so my reading plans will be tailored to that expectation. My Goodreads reading goal will be something manageable for me, about 40-50 books (still deciding), and I won’t participate in as many year-long reading challenges as I did last year (so goodbye to Book Riot Read Harder Challenge and Library Love Challenge.) I will also try to ignore the temptation to participate in readathons that pop up throughout the year. I kept making TBRs for them in 2018 but failed miserably at them all. I don’t want to go through that again.

So no readathons, no Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, and no Library Love Challenge (though I’ll continue to visit my library). My top-most goals will be:
