Elisa Bandstra | 63 comments This is my second year of being in this group and having my own little space! I have chosen for 24 books again for 2019, even though I will probably exceed 24 in 2018, as I am in my final year of my studies of becoming an English teacher now and this year is quite hectic! My guide for this year is: 1 group read + 1 TBR/other challenge. I also want to do some Popsugar Reading Challenge prompts again!

I've copied Auntie Terror's layout to get me more organised this year.

Ilona | 3987 comments Good luck with your goal this year, Elisa!

I see that you have They Both Die at the End scheduled for January, would you be up for a buddy read? It has been on my tbr list for a while.

Sorry to have gotten back to you this late, but if you're still up for the buddy read, I am up for it too! It'd be my first buddy read experience :)

Dear Ilona, thanks for checking in with me! As you can see I've unfortunately completely fallen of the bandwagon... my final year of studies has taken a toll on me. But! The end is in sight and I am looking soooo forward to locking myself in with a good reading marathon when I've handed in my thesis!
