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).

What are YOUR reading goals?

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!

Books Read in June

First, I want to say “HOLY CRAP! I read a lot!” Don’t judge me!
Second, a lot of these were SHORT books, so that’s part of it. Part of it is also on slow days when I have certain bosses, I can read while I’m at work. And I read while I’m in waiting rooms. Did a lot of that this month. Got a lot of decent amount of time off this past month as well 😉

So, here’s my list:

    • The Falcon Tames The Psychic
    • The Nanny Proposal
    • When Tinker Met Bell
    • The Witch Rescues Her Werewolf
    • The Genie’s Double Trouble
    • A Dragon Speaks Her Name: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
    • Invasion of the Alien Snatchers: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
    • The Doctor Falls For Her Gargoyle
    • How Knot To Marry A Vampire: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
    • The Nymph Next Door
    • Magic’s Promise
    • The Dragon’s Spellbound Alien
    • The Dragon’s Magical Bride
    • The Chef Caters to the Reaper
    • The Dragon Falls For The Fairy Godmother
    • The Alien Who Fell to Earth
    • The Princess Protects Her Huntsman
    • Besphinxed
    • Broccoli & Broomsticks
    • The Trickster Makes A Match: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
    • The Yin to His Yang
    • Beauty and the Bigfoot Hunter: A Nocturne Falls Universe story
    • In Too Deep
    • All Night Long
    • Light My Fire
    • A Dragon Gambles For His Girl

In case you didn’t feel like counting, that’s 26. Twenty-six books were read by me in June!

Now to see how many books I can read in July! I’m thinking not as many! This month is going to be just a little bit more insane that June was! Three appointments for the month are already set. We’re going to Worlds of Fun on Tuesday. Today we’re going to my father-in-law’s (okay, that means I’ll be able to read but still). Monday might be a good reading day. Wednesday is the 4th and I can read but I’ll be doing more walking than anything 😉
