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: July 2018

I liked seeing how many books I read in June, so I thought that I would do it again for July!

  1. The Falcon’s Full House (Nocturne Falls Universe)
  2. The Vampire’s Unintended Alien (Nocturne Falls Universe)
  3. You’ve Got Aliens (Alienn, Arkansas #1)
  4. How to Lose an Alien in 10 Days (Alienn, Arkansas #2)
  5. My Big Fat Alien Wedding (Alienn, Arkansas #3)
  6. Her Mistletoe Mistake (Holiday Heroes, #2)
  7. Her Halloween Blind Date (Holiday Heroes Book 1)
  8. Pacific Passion: Books 1-3
  9. Her Valentine Surprise (Holiday Heroes Book 3)
  10. Walk the Line (Man of the Month #12)
  11. Biker (Bad Boys in Big Trouble #1)
  12. Bodyguard (Bad Boys in Big Trouble #3)
  13. Bomb Tech (Bad Boys in Big Trouble #4)
  14. Bounty Hunter (Bad Boys in Big Trouble #5)
  15. The Shaman Charms The Shifter: A Nocturne Falls Universe story (Nocturne Falls Universe)
  16. Bandit (Bad Boys in Big Trouble #6)
  17. White Heat (Firefighter #1)
  18. Blue Flame (Firefighter #2)
  19. Seeing Red (Firefighter #3)
  20. Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned #1)
  21. Fashionably Dead Down Under (Hot Damned #2)

Wow. I read 5 less books in July than I did in June, but I still read a crapton of books. If I average about 15 books normally a month (because summer means slower, I guess?), that means I should be reading 180 books a year.  Good thing I have my goal set to 200 for the year on Goodreads! I’m currently at 129. That’s an average of 18 books a month! That’s absolutely crazy!

In a good way! I guess you can see why I’m a Ravenclaw! ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
