What are your reading goals for 2019?

Catherine Bruno | 771 comments I want to shoot for 70 since I’ve read 72 books towards my 2018 goal.

I think I'm just going to do 180 for my Goodreads goal again. I don't have a ton of goals, just some vague ideas of things I'd like to read. I will be tracking my reading pretty closely this year, I got a journal just for that purpose. I have a list of series I'd like to finish, as well as get caught up on all my book sub box reads. I'm also doing 2 yearly challenges: PopSugar and TBR & Beyond's Yearly Challenge (on Facebook).

Ashley Marie - Read 100 books
- At least 1 Shakespeare play
- Finish Les Miserables
- Catch up on the Others series
- Finish the Jackaby series
- Finish the Divine Cities trilogy
- Finish the Broken Earth trilogy
- Continue the Pendergast series
- Continue the Kinsey Millhone series
- Continue the Temeraire series (maybe finish it? who knows)

And I'm still trying to settle on a long-haul book for 2019, once Les Mis is finished.

Thanks Jenny! I also need to make owned-books a priority. Again.

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 4464 comments Since I've got a lot of life stuff happening next year (starting the year with surgery in late January, for a start) and I also have movie watching and writing goals, I'm setting my 2019 reading goal to 104 books.

My other reading goal is to do both versions of the A-z challenge.


message 14: by Christine (new)

Christine Hatfield  (christinesbookshelves) | 1526 comments My reading goal for 2019 on goodreads is going to be 132 books and I’m going to be reading the books that I got for Christmas


message 15: by [deleted user] (last edited Dec 19, 2018 12:46PM) (new)

I will continue my goal from this year I wrote a list of authors I wanted to read this fall, only got a few, so want to read more from that list.
Authors I want to get to:
Mercedes Lackey
Graham greene
Nora roberts(have read a book by her want to read more)
Clive Cussler
Like Ashley I want to read Sheakespeare.
Rereading the princess diraies by Meg cabot, the whole series.
And generally reading from my tbr.
The number I think will be 219, since my last goal this year was 218 and I am two pluss that atm, so I think the punny number 219 will be good.

I loved that you changed your goal to 218 this year, and think it's cool you're doing 219 next year.

message 22: by Leigh (new)

Leigh | 403 comments My reading goal is 150 books. I also would like to finish series I have started.


Rianna *Hermione* B (hermione617) | 10 comments Last year, my goal was 25. I reached it exactly. THis year, my goal was 25, but by August or Sept., I was already about to reach it. So I bumped it up to 30. Now I just finished 43. Next year, I'll probably aim for 40. Audio books are a beautiful thing. I get a fair amount read at work.


message 24: by Sophia (new)

Sophia (Bookwyrming Thoughts) (bookwyrmingthoughts) | 386 comments I surprisingly went past 50 books this year... but I might go for 100 next year since my internship has been keeping me reading at least 2 books at a time. (Gotta run my own blog while reviewing for another, lol.)


message 25: by Christine (new)

Christine Hatfield  (christinesbookshelves) | 1526 comments I’m way ahead of you Rianna and Sophia and that’s wonderful Leigh

How many books are you going to read this year?


message 32: by Brigid ✩ (new)

Brigid ✩ | 738 comments Hey guys! (Wow I haven't been on here in forever...I missed all of you.) Sadly I barely read anything in 2018 (had a lot of hectic stuff going on, including getting a new job and moving into a new house) plus mental health stuff etc. etc. but I'm really hoping to get back on track with reading in 2019 (and talking again with all you lovely people!). I set a goal of 40 books for the year, since I'm hoping to finish a book roughly every 1-2 weeks. I'd also like to branch out and try some new authors/genres although I don't have a lot of specific goals other than that. So yeah! :)
