The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme with a prompt featuring a book related question. The hop begins on a Friday and ends on a Thursday and should hopefully give people the opportunity to learn something new about the blogger.
The Book Blogger Hop can be found on Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and obviously my answers can be found here!
This is going to be a short answer this week my lovelies because I went into this in greater detail on my End of Year Wrap Up 2018 (Part 2). You can check it and its so-called ‘sexy stats’ here.
In a nutshell my goal last year was to read 52 books. I didn’t quite make it and finished at 45 books.
But, because I still feel like reading one book per week is a very attainable goal for me I decided that my goal for 2019 would also be to read 52 books.
If I surpass it then cool. If I don’t, I don’t. I won’t beat myself up.
If you are someone who reads significantly less or significantly more than both those things are equally as awesome. If you are setting a goal than it should always be what’s attainable for you.
That can be 10 or 210. But if it’s 210 – tell me how. I need to know!
I feel like doing a post on goal setting now. Damn my HR head.
Kareena @ Reader Voracious has started a brand new feature which she is calling ‘the Novel19 Class’ and is all about providing exposure to debut authors.
Aurora @ Aurora Librialis has also started a brand new feature which is all about book recommendations based on astrology! Check out her first blog post on Aquarius (I’m a Pisces so I can’t wait for that one)!
Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads has done a post about a new reading challenge that she is co-hosting! This challenge is the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge and is all about reading more books by Asian authors. Check out the post for more information.
What is your reading goal for the year and how does it compare to last years?
How do you feel if you do/ don’t achieve it and you are someone who can’t help but compare against other readers anyway?
If you’re part of the #52 club then let me know! (It’s not actually a club, I just made that up).
I will see you for next weeks blog hop where I answer the question of audio books vs. ebooks and what I would do if the world stopped printing books.
