Jennifer | 119 comments I'm trying to be more realistic for next year with my reading goals.....it's hard when there is so much in my TBR pile. Maybe I will surprise myself :)

I joined Goodreads in 2011, I still have books I added to my to read shelf from that year, meaning they have been on my list for 8 years as of 2019!!! Going to put those on the top of my list to read come January.

1. Daughter of Joy ***
2. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood***
3. The Faithful One**
4. Mercy***
5. Educated****
6. Angels Watching Over Me***
7. Little Black Sheep: A Memoir**
8. You Need a Budget: The Proven System for Breaking the Paycheck to Paycheck Cycle, Getting Out of Debt, and Living the Life You Want****

Susy (susysstories) Sounds like a nice goal Jennifer, doing 1 book a month. I started out with 12 books a year as well.

I have books that have been on my TBR forever as well. Will be needing a couple of lifetimes to finish them all lol

Wishing you the best of luck with your goal Jennifer but above all I wish you a happy reading year! May you find some gems along the way.

Good luck next year Jennifer! :)

Adriana | 3888 comments I have books from 2012 however I've culled many throughout the years. I have to ask myself if I'm really going to read a certain book when I cull.

Jennifer | 119 comments I am probably not as selective as I should be with my TBR list. My other problem is every time I start a book, I feel a need to finish it even if I find it boring or don’t really like it. Trying to break that pattern, if A book is not holding my attention it gets added to the did not finish list and that is that. Because otherwise it takes me months to get through when I could be reading something else....

Adriana | 3888 comments My mom does the same thing. I usually skim books if I'm not liking it. I very rarely DNF. Although I did so this year because my pace slowed down considerably from last year so I rather move on to a book I'll like as well.

Jennifer | 119 comments I have never been a huge fan of putting it on the DNF list (as I mentioned). But I gotta say when I stopped reading that book it felt sooo good lol. It was just not something that interested me but I thought it should.

Jennifer | 119 comments I blame the fact that February only has 28 days on the reason that I did not finish Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood during said month. Really close to the end so hopefully I can stay on track

Jennifer | 119 comments Ending May just 1 book behind....*sigh*

There is still plenty of time to catch up! I am sure you can reach your goal this year :)
