Happy 2020, my friends!
You have probably noticed that my posts and replies to comments have come a bit sparsely the last few months. I apologizing for being so inactive but I have great news to share with y’all!
I am expecting our third child! And with this pregnancy came all the usual nausea and sickness of my previous. For several weeks, I was simply surviving. So everything fell away including reading and blogging. But finally I am feeling more like myself and should shake the last of my nausea next month. Please continue to be patient with me over the coming year. It’s going to be a big one for us!
2019 ended sluggishly, but before that I did rather well with my goals.
I finished 65 books.
8 Classics for The Classics Club
14 Newbery Winners for my Newbery Challenge
5 Books Released in 2019
15 rereads (including all 7 Chronicles of Narnia)
I published 116 posts.
I reviewed 73 books.
I shared 23 book lists.
Overall, I’d say 2019 was quite a year for me!
I’m trying to keep my 2020 goals a bit smaller than in years past. But if you’ve been here long, you know I usually surprise myself with how much I read. Plus, that’s what I usually do during long hours of nursing a newborn.
- First, I hope to read 50 books in 2020. This shouldn’t be too crazy as I have been rereading old favorites rather quickly to start the year.
- I’d like to read 10 Newbery winners to work towards my Newbery Challenge goal.
- I’d like to share 10 new books lists this year.
- My big goal this year is to finish my list for the Classics Club! My goal of 50 classics by September 2020 seemed so far away when I made it in 2015 and now it is basically here. I have 10 titles left ranging from full novels to poetry and essays. It is going to be close. But I think I can do it!
Finally, I’ve been rereading a lot of favorites to begin this new year and I’d thought I share my reading list lately. It begins with most of the Harry Potter books in a random order. Haha. And ends with The Books of Bayern. Currently I’m rereading Enna Burning and falling in love with this world all over again! Enjoy!
Happy 2020! What are you reading this year?
