2019 Reading Goals!

My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!

But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.

Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.

Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.

I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.

I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.

Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.

So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!

As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O

2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.

2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.

  1. Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!

So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).

Goals for November

I have goals! Yes I do!

I’m starting with small goals. The smaller goals mean they’re easier to achieve!

Goal #1: Start Shift Shop

I start on November 04 (Monday). My goal is to completely finish it!

Goal #2: Write 50k Words

I’m doing NaNoWriMo. I need to write those words!

Goal #3: Share My Workouts

I went to a singular instagram account so that I could do this more efficiently.

Goal 4: Read at least 5 Books

I only put it that low simply because I should be focusing on writing and NOT my reading.

Goal 5: Get SLEEP!

Yeah, I haven’t been sleeping well. AT ALL!

LIGHT MY FIRE by J. Kenner

LIGHT MY FIRE RB BANNERLight My Fire, an all-new sexy standalone by #1 New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is LIVE!

11 - November - Light My Fire

I don’t do relationships.

I’ve lived my life hiding my scars, revealing myself only the in the scripts I write and the characters I voice.

Few people know the real me. I’m too careful. Too afraid of getting burned all over again.

Enter Beverly Martin. A movie star. A woman so beautiful and caring she makes my heart ache. She says she wants me—and her touch almost makes me believe that a girl like her could love a man like me.

But being with her would mean letting the spotlight of fame shine on me, too. And I’m not sure I can do that—even if walking away means losing the woman I love.

He’ll break any rule to claim her.

Billionaire bad boy Parker Manning buried his dark past beneath fast cars and faster women. With his chiseled good looks and Texas oil legacy, Parker’s used to laying claim to whatever—or whoever—he desires, and he’s never met a woman he couldn’t seduce into his bed.
