My 2019 Reading Challenge

For the year of 2019 I have challenged myself to read 50 books. When you do the math that essentially equates to a book a week. My Goodreads list is long so I have plenty of books to chose from. (And yes, I’m on track so far with my first book of the year).

I thought to make things even more interesting, I’d put a little review of the book on here as a fun addition to my challenge. Now my book choices are all over the place. I truly like everything from Fantasy, to Crime Novels, to YA, so be prepared for an array of novels and even a little poetry dabbled in.

I also always appreciate suggestions and comments on my posts! Especially if they are really good books that I should totally add to my list.

EDIT (September 16th): I’ve gotten quite behind in this reading challenge and decided to lower my goal to 40 books. I feel confident in being able to finish this new goal and hope you still follow along.
