My last New Years post. After this, I’ll try getting the blog to a normal schedule. Hopefully posting 5 times a week. Anyhow….
Here it is: my top ten books of the year post. LOL just kidding. 🤣🤣🤣😂😭
I poured over each monthly wrap up, looking at books– some I’d even forgotten I’d read this year! It was brutal, and out of about 110 books I narrowed it down to 52 books… for someone who read over 600 books in a year, I think this is doing good (less than 10% of the books I read).
So, instead I made multiple lists!!
I made a Middle Grade & Young Adult list, Graphic Novels list, and Adult list
And no duplicates — so yes, this is my way of showing off more books.
Just to clarify, these are books I read this year, not necessarily books published this year!

I finally got around to reading Awkward in December (yes, I still have books to review from then) and immediately picked up Brave and had my library purchase Crush for my branch. I now have all three at my branch and I’m so excited to recommend them like crazy! I wanted to share my love for each of these books, so reviews will be below.
Tl;dr: These are the cutest graphic novels that are also emotionally impacting and 10/10 I highly recommend them.

Hey all 🙂
I wanted to share my challenges/goals for next year with you all! I’ve been truly debating what kinds of challenges I would set up for myself this year, since reading for challenges can sometimes not work out for me. I tend to rebel against obligation reading these days. Any time I feel like I have to read something, I start putting it off. This is a mindset I need to work on for sure, but I haven’t been sure if having challenges would make it worse…
And yet, I feel like having goals and challenges give my reading some direction when I need it.
In conclusion: These are totally my reading challenges, BUT I’m not going to stress about them. They are there to guide my reading and help me, but if I don’t finish I’m not going to feel horrible. I’m also not going to force myself to finish a book just to complete a challenge/prompt. Continue reading “My 2019 Challenges”
