Hello, Welcome Friends.
I feel like this is the year I will be just reading for me, every other year I've taken too much on by myself and feel like i am just reading average rating books, i want the year to be filled with fun and enjoyment, not saying last year wasn't but if i am being honest the last half of 2018 was so much fun. I participated in reading challenges and i was just reading so many books i own and it was really rewarding.
This year, 2019 is a year for me. I have decided months ago that i will only take on a couple arcs every now and then, and its not like i am getting many books from overseas publishers anymore. it seems that postage is to much, that is what they tell me... but hey who am i to judge. I still get some lovely and exciting mail from Australian publishers which i am so happy about. Anyways i went of the track.
2019 Reading Goals!
1. To stay on brand, do what I want and read what I want.
2. Read the J.D. Robb series
3. Try and get back into the Immortal After Dark series
4. Read at least 5 TBR jar pick
5. Listen to at least 1-2 audios a month

Good Reads Challenge
Click the link and you can read all the rules. Here are some, I think I am going to aim for the Blitz. Read 13-24 TBR books.
I like with this one there is a challenge each month, which I find helpful to pick the book.
For January, i have already rolled the dice 4 times and have read 3 books for my romanceopoly, i am aiming to roll 3-4 times a month to complete all the challenges. If you want to check out what i have rolled and read in this month please click here
The next Challenge I am going to start is the TBR challenge, I have looked at my shelves and i have discovered what has been some of the longest books on my good reads tbr and corresponded that with my own home library to see if i had it, and i did. That book will be a Sherrilyn Kenyon title called Bad Attitude.
I've been wanting to read this for so long, It hasn't been till recently I was able to find the paperback.
It is only the 9th so my small goal is to read some more older books that have been on my book shelf as well, but to have fun with everything. I don't want to go all out strong and then fizzle out come sometime in March. lol
My goal is to do weekly reading wrap ups of what i have read during the week too, The first week (ish) of January I read a total of 4 books and I finished an Audio.
I read the following;
All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan, I rated that a 4 stars.
One Tough Cowboy by Lora Leigh, I rated that 5 stars
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, I rated that 4-4.5 stars
Nineteen Letters by Jodi Perry, I DNF
Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrew, I rated that 5 stars. (audio)
Signing off for now, happy reading.
