I’m hoping 2019 will be a chill year full of amazing books, isn’t that a book lovers dream? I’m not usually one for new year new me but there are a few bookish goals I would like to accomplish in 2019.
1.Keep Goodreads up to date
I didn’t have a goal for the number of books read in 2018 and I won’t be having a Goodreads goal in 2019, I usually read around 100 books in a year. My Goodreads is a mess at the minute however and I would like to actually record what books I read in 2019. There have been too many times that I have read 100 pages of a book then realise I have already read it before *facepalm*. To see the mess that is my Goodreads click here.
2. Read more from independent publishers/ lesser known authors
I feel that I have been completely missing out on amazing authors by always picking up books published by the big companies. I want to try lesser known authors so I can find more books to fall in love with and talk about on my blog. I’ve been using Kindle Unlimited this month and have fallen in love with books I wouldn’t have seen otherwise. If you know other ways to find lesser known authors let me know!
3. Library Love Challenge
I am a sucker for the library, I max out my book limit everytime I go, what can I say, I’m a dreamer! I go most Saturday mornings and stay until I’ve finished what book I’ve been reading, it’s the perfect way to start a weekend. The challenge is simply to read as many library books as you can during the year and I will be updating my progress here regularly. If you are interested and want to know more here is a link to the original post at Angel’s Guilty Pleasures.
4.Comment 4 Comment Challenge
I like this challenge because it encourages conversation in the book blogger community. If someone comments on your blog you reply then leave a comment on the other person’s blog which is just such a nice thing to do. The challenge is created by Elgee Writes. I’ve only been blogging a month and I’ve fell in love with the community, it’s so welcoming and there is always someone if you need advice.
5. Attend YALC and be social (eek)
I went to YALC this year and it was one of the best experiences of my life, I couldn’t believe so many people loved book as much as me, it was like coming home. I hope to go in 2019 and to actually spend time talking to people as I was too anxious and shy to do so last time.
There you have it, these are my 2019 goals! I’m not a girl who is all about the numbers so all I hope for is good books, to still be blogging and connect to other bookish people!
Do you have any 2019 bookish goals? What are you looking forward to most in the new year?
