Happy New Year to you! I hope your holiday season was full of love and laughter! As I stuff our tree back into its box and carefully wrap each precious ornament, my mind turns to the new year and what I hope to accomplish in it.
For the past six or seven years, I’ve set a reading goal using Goodreads. It definitely kept me focused, and I read quite a few books, to be sure. But I also found that it caused me to binge read and not to retain things well.
For 2019, I’m choosing not to engage with Goodreads that way. Instead, I’ll use it to track the books that I read thoroughly and thoughtfully, making notes that I can reference in the future. Basically, I’m going to be more intentional with my reading. Because I love a good reading list, I want to share it! If you’re so inclined, I would love for you to read a book or two with me! I’ll read more than what is listed here, over the course of the year, but this list will provide a structure for my reading that I’ve lacked in past years.
As I read, my intention is to interact with each book (or series, in the case of my first two fiction selections) by writing a review, here on the blog, and linking them to the “book nook” page.
