2019 Reading Goals


Hi there Literature Lovers! Happy New Year!

I’m sure many of you are setting your goals for the New Year, whether that relates to work, an activity you want to pursue, or our mutual love, reading!

I have decided that this year I want to read 75 books. You can friend me on GoodReads to follow my progress.

There are two main challenges that I am setting myself for this year:

1) Read every book on my To Read list that is on Goodreads

We are all guilty of buying books and pushing them down our TBR as newer books are released. I have been sorting through my bookshelves and trying to minimize my collection. It’s mostly because my tastes have changed in the last year and a half. Despite this, I would like to read some of these books before I decide to give them away. There are around 50 currently on my TBR, some of which are the first in a series, so I will probably save those for later, but I plan to make it through all my unread books this year. Who knows, I might find a new favorite!

2) Read all 26 books in the Penguin Drop Caps editions

I started really collecting these books at the beginning of 2018. I had received the first book, Pride and Prejudice, for Christmas in 2013 with no intention of getting the rest of the books. Flash forward to today and I have collected almost all of these beautiful books. I want to actually read all of them, ideally by the end of 2019, so I plan to read two or three of them a month. It’ll be a fun way to get back into classics!

I’m so excited and motivated for this year and I will keep you posted on my progress as the months go by!

I’d love to hear about your reading goals for this year so please share in the comments below!

Thanks for reading!
