Happy New Year!
Today I’m going to share some of my other reading hopes/aims/goals for 2019.
For us, 2018 brought the best thing ever – ‘Peapod’! This considerably slowed down my reading. Where I used to read on my commute, breaks at work and before bed, I now find myself trying to cram in a couple of pages whenever I can (which isn’t often!)
While I wouldn’t have it any other way, it did mean I didn’t quite reach my Goodreads goal of 100 books in 2018 – I managed 88.
So for 2019, I’ve set my official goal of 70. Though secretly, I’d still like to make 100.
Are we friends on Goodreads? Have you set yourself a reading challenge for 2019?
There are a lot (A LOT!) of classics I haven’t read, both children’s and adult ones, so I’d like to read more of these next year. I’m going to aim for one a month, but I’m not setting this in stone.
I think my first will be Mary Poppins, as I bought the Lauren Child illustrated version a while back but still haven’t read it.
How do you feel about classics? Which would you recommend I read?
Likewise, there are a lot of books I’d like to re-read but never seem to get round to them because of my never-ending stack of new (or new to me) books.
So, I’d like to take the time to re-read some of these in 2019. The one I’ve been promising myself for a while is Harry Potter, which I loved but haven’t read since they were originally released! There are others I’d like to go back to as well but if I can read Harry Potter this year, I’ll be happy!
Are there any books you’d like to re-read this year?
I’m a wonderfully sweeping statement – I only ever read fiction. Last year, I read a couple of adult non-fiction books and really enjoyed them though. It reminded me that I do like some non-fiction – namely biographies or memoirs – so I’d like to keep reading more of these this year too.
Do you read non-fiction? Are there any biographies or auto-biographies you’d recommend?
Put simply, my aim is to keep on top of them! I know there will still be times I lag behind, but I’m hoping some shorter reviews and more frequent Mini Monday posts might help!
What are your 2019 reading goals?
Whatever 2018 may have thrown your way – good or bad – here’s hoping 2019 is a good one for you…and your reading goals!
Happy New (Reading) Year!
