Happy New Year to you all from Sydney, AustraliaπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ†
Can't believe it's 2019 already! Have you set your reading challenge for the year? I think I'm going to set it the same as last year and hoping to do better as I go along :)

102 books! My best reading year yet.

2019 goals
1. Read 90 books. (But really I want to break 100 again.)
2. Read the 12 books that have been on my Goodreads TBR the longest.
3. Read one book by each of the authors I have 3 or more books by on my Goodreads TBR.
4. Read at least 24 books I own.

A quiet first day back in the office has meant time to plan all the books I want to read this year. I really want to get to them all, although I only managed 32 books in 2018 and with 23 on this list that doesn‘t leave too much room for spontaneous buys and Libby reads. But I am determined to try and read more this year πŸ€žπŸŽ‰

post image

It's officially January 1st which means I DID IT!!! I successfully accomplished my one New Year's resolution for 2018 to not buy any books for myself. My goal was to focus on reading from my own collection, but I ended up borrowing books from friends and the library as well as listening to audio books. So for 2019 I'm going to let myself buy books as long as I work on reading more from my own shelves πŸ€— Happy New Year everyone!

I know I‘m super late with this, but here goes:

πŸ“š Read 75 books (almost made it in 2018!)

πŸ“š Find time to read (somehow!) every day, even a little

πŸ“š Read more poetry

πŸ“š Reread some old favorites

πŸ“š Keep up with group- and buddy-reads

πŸ“š Tackle some of the books that have been at the top of the tbr pile for years!

Here‘s to a bookish New Year, Littens! πŸ₯³πŸ₯‚

Set my #goodreadschallenge for the year. Doubling 2018's seemed tough at first but I did read 81/50 and I started in March last year. My 2018 resolution of reading my books I should have read before continues with the addition of more 18th century classics. I'm still working on a list for that part.
Happy New Year everyone!

SamanthaMarie I set mine at 100 too!! Good luck and happy reading!! 9mo

I‘m not usually one for resolutions but 2019 has to be the year I finally get my book buying habit under control. I‘ve got a whopping 152 unread books, worth a total of 422 points (based on my elaborate point system.) So in 2019, I resolve to not buy any more books until I‘ve slashed that 152 down to 50.

#2019resolutions #iwillnotbuymorebooks

Melissa_J I usually make a resolution each year to buy fewer books, but never stick to it. This year I haven‘t made the resolution because I realized there really is no point since I‘ll break it anyway πŸ˜‚ 9mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I wish you luck. 9mo
janeycanuck @Melissa_J last year, I failed spectacularly at a 2-in-1-out approach so I figure cold turkey is my only chance. 9mo
Amandajoy Last year I realized I had too many books on my TBR at home and it was getting overwhelming. That helped to slow down on my book buying last year. I still bought some, but it was waaaay less than in years past. But I‘ve been careful not to put myself on a book buying ban because that never works for me. 9mo

Here we go again! The excitement over starting a new year in books was what got me out of bed this morning.
Goals for 2019:
πŸ“š Another hundred
πŸ“š Read at least 1 book per month that I already own
Keeping it simple because I love book discovery and other resolutions (playing more board games, being more social) will take away from my reading time. Happy 2019, Littens! #happynewyear #bookgoals

I am day late for Sunday but still in time to make my New Years resolutions so here they are...

I'm terrible at New Year resolutions. I'm practically sure l won't achieve any of these. But here it goes.

1. Complite this year #TBRBingo
2. Complete #Booked2019
3. Read enough non-fiction books about 1920s Germany to be ready for the AtoZ blogging challenge in April (and all my 1920s German novels)
4. Take part in at least one Litsy swap
5. Taking part in at least one readathon

I worry about making commitments that I will not keep so I don‘t often make New Year‘s Resolutions, but I do think that it can be motivational as a frontal lobe thought...so here goes an effort:

πŸ“– Participate in a Reading Marathon

πŸ“– Read two biographies

πŸ“– Complete a Sci-Fi/Fantasy series

I hope that I follow through. I have 100% confidence in only one of those statements, because it‘s already part of a plan. We‘ll see...

Nute @Bookladylinda @Crazeedi Thanks for the encouragement.😊 9mo
Nute @RJHowe @Ddzmini I enjoy reading Sci-Fi/Fantasy. There is no better reading experience than following along for the creation/building of an extensive world. This experience begs for numerous books in a series. Although I like it, sometimes it can be daunting to commit to 3 large books in a row or 7 books in a series, etc. But you both are right...I just need to it, because it‘s usually worth it and it feels like an accomplishment.😊 9mo
WomanistBibliophile I am tentative also around making resolutions, at least grand ones. I‘ve set some intentions for my year‘s reading, books seem to be my one area of reliability in life! 🀩 9mo

2018 was my most prolific reading year to date and that‘s with getting two new jobs, studying a masters degree and parenting two young children. I‘m pretty pleased with my 76 (and a half) books and well surpassed my target of 52. Next I‘m aiming to crack 100, but to do that I really am going to have to squeeze reading into every available minute.

1. Read at least 25 books. I usually beat my goal, but I feel like I slow down a bit with having a full-time job. But, I need to make more time after work reading and get a ton of reading over my vacations (thank goodness for working in the schools).
2. Stop putting books on hold for other books-I have too many unfinished books due to this.
3. Post more on #Litsy

πŸ“– If the book doesn‘t interest me at the time move on to something else, it may just not be the right time

πŸ“– Spend more time on Litsy and in my books than on Facebook...I really want to cut way back on that!

SassyBookworm @CouronneDhiver DNF as in do not Facebook? I have tried a lot more this year and have succeeded in only posting a few things about my kids (mainly for family I don‘t see often) and a few sports things I always tag. It has been great so I definitely feel more of a hiatus would be liberating! 9mo
SassyBookworm @cassiopia my only hesitation in deleting it completely is I have a lot of pictures I want to keep and it‘s sadly a way to keep up with distant family & friends bc I would really like to delete it! 9mo
SassyBookworm @Hornsby78 thank you! I really hope to read more books than 55! Although with me working full time now and both of my girls in school and doing activities I didn‘t want to set it to high and not be able to finish it. 9mo
cassiopia @SassyBookworm I totally get what you mean. I'm already 5 1/2 hours away from my nieces and nephews and come March I'll be moving another 19 hours away. Facebook is the main way I get to see them on a regular basis. 9mo

Keep reading as much as possible πŸ“š In July, I rekindled my love of reading. I hadn‘t read for pleasure since college. This was probably my most stressful year in regards to work. I picked up reading again to help me decompress and not overthink outside of work hours. I read 22 books from July to now so I think I‘ll set a goal of 40 books for 2019.

I am ready for better reading goals in 2019, despite what could be another rough year in the same kitchen job 😝 when I'm more in the mood of swinging a sword in Skyrim. I'll vow to finish that game soon, before 200+ save files freeze-crash the battlefield. 😨 There goes my mountain flowers, for unused potions.. My focus for 2019 indeed, is #MountTBR with lots I still have to read!

This is tough, I‘m not much on resolutions. But I want to read more books that I own and thin the herd on my bookshelves. I‘m planning on rereading A Song of Ice and Fire before the final season airs on HBO. I‘d also like to hit 120 books read, but school is going to be intense so I‘m unsure about that one.

1. Read 50 books
2. Work on my TBR
3. Bail on what doesn't work for me

1) Read more classics
2) Read more of my owned books
3) Read more books from a series that I've already started (especially GOT), I'm so slow at reading any series because I always space out the books so much while reading them.

I probably won't be reading too many books in the first couple of months of 2019 (need to focus elsewhere), but I will probably set a low reading goal

I didn't read as much as I wanted. That's the problem with one who has too many interests. So I would like to try to double it.
A friend interested me in something.. "Why give one something on a day you have to? And not just because!?" I guess that is why I love exchanges so much. So along with that. The people around me, if I see something they like or makes me think of them.. I will get them it. Just because

1. Trying to decide how many books to read - this year I said 85 but think I‘m ending up with 105- so may make it 90?.?.
2. Not tying myself down in challenges - when I first joined Litsy I joined all challenges and didn‘t finish a one so now I just doing #booked2019
3. Would love to organize a themed swap but still haven‘t settled on a theme - so stay tuned and let me know if you have any ideas!

My plans for #24B42019 *

*subject to change and any mood, whim or flight of fancy

Andrew65 Some interesting choices. Good luck. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ 9mo
ravenlee I love Dracula, but it can be hard to get into it. The letters/journals style always gives me a little trouble starting it, but it picks up a little ways in. 9mo
amb @Andrew65 all of these books are in some stage toward completion. It‘s not as ambitious as it looks 9mo
TheReadingMermaid Dracula is amazing! And Head Full of Ghosts is on my TBR list. Enjoy!πŸ‘πŸ» 9mo

So excited for #NewYearWhoDis and had a question @Siannalyn for your series books should I start with book one or are some good stand alone? I already picked two and put them on hold from the library and have two or three I‘m planning on audiobook. 😊 Thanks @monalyisha for hosting!

Siannalyn Hi! The series are all series series, so it's better if you start from book one (and I think we recs each others the same series two times 😍). The only standalone ones are the non fantasy books (Eleanor Oliphant/The Pornographic Penguin/A Bad Boy Stole my Bra/ Slothilda... this one is the cutest graphic novel ever, btw!). I am waiting to find the time at the computer to look better into your list and I am so excited about it!!! 9mo
Bookgoil @Siannalyn okay that‘s what I thought! Yeah there‘s 3 or 4 books I already read on your list and some i will look into the first book of! The Greatcoats series is one of my big faves! I also read the first two Red Rising series so I‘m ready for Morning Star! 9mo
monalyisha @Bookgoil @Siannalyn Some other participants are accepting the first book in a recommended series as an acceptable substitute. Something to think about! 9mo

Siannalyn @bookgoil I discovered The Greatcoats this year and even if I have read just the first book I am in love with it 9mo
Siannalyn @monalyisha @bookgoil sorry, I thought that was implied, I don't know why, my bad!! Anyway for me it's more than ok if you read the first book in the series, or the book in the series you have to read if you have started it yet. It's that ok for yoy, too? 9mo
Bookgoil @Siannalyn yes that‘s totally okay for book 1 in a series! I think I labeled them if they weren‘t the first book. 😊 9mo
Bookgoil @Siannalyn I actually tried to stay away from later books in a series. Seems I started a lot of series this year... lol 😊 I binged a couple like Illuminae and Study in Charlotte. 9mo
Siannalyn @Bookgoil Study in Charlotte is on my wishlist and I am really curious about it! Also, I have finished Illuminae this year, too (the series). I think I am in love with Jay Kristoff! 9mo
