I am so sorry for my absence. I really have no idea why I have abandoned this blog, but I won’t do that in 2019. In fact one of my goals in 2019 is to be more active on the blog. Anyways it is the time of year where I have sit down for a while and thought long and hard on not only goals or I guess my New Years Resolutions, but reading goals I have for 2019. Can you believe that is already 2019?!? When did that happen?
2018 was a weird reading year for me and I am hoping to avoid the dreaded slump which I feel like I was in for a majority of the year. Thinking on my top reads is super hard for me, because nothing really stood out to me. So here is to hoping 2019 will be different.
My goal this year Goodreads wise is going to be set low, because I want to focus my attention on writing my own book. The only thing I am going to reveal about my book is that it is currently untitled and being called Project X. It is set during the time of the Revolutionary War and has a fantasy element thrown in there. That is all that I can reveal and that is really all there is at this point in time since I am in the very early beginning phases. So I am setting my reading goal to 30 this year, which is not a lot, but hopefully I will be able to surpass that.
I am also going to focus on catching up on reading series that I have started, but yet to complete. A few that come to mind is the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, Truthwitch series by Susan Dennard and Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard.
One of my biggest goals this year is to buy less books and focus more on what I have and trying to read all the books I already own (we shall see how long that lasts). I am going to strive to utilize the library more and shop more used bookstores versus going to Barnes and Noble whenever I have the itch to buy. I’m also going to try my hardest (try is the key word) to keep myself from impulse buying.
So tell me, what are your reading goals in 2019?
