My Year In Books: 2019

Greetings and salutations my dear followers! It’s that time again to discuss the results of my GoodReads Reading Challenge. You know the drill, I’ve been doing this since 2013. So

As I’ve said in previous posts, this year I’ve been busy working on something that’ll improve my life and I didn’t think I would have time to read, but lo and behold I accomplished my reading goal and even doubled the amount that I read!

My reading goal was 15 books and I read 33.  There were comics and graphic novels, novels, biographies, poetry, inspirational, informative and more. This year I started reading a book series A Twisted Tale and I’ve been enjoying all of the books in it. This series is Disney’s version of “What If” and takes a spin on some of the properties’ popular stories such as Mulan, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, etc. These takes so far have been pretty good and somewhat dark-Sleeping Beauty & Beauty & the Beast are the darkest ones I’ve read. You can read the full report here. You can see some of the books that I read below:

Granted I read less books this year than last, but that was to be expected with what I’ve been working on. Last year I had three goals:

Read at least 15 books for the year.

Read the entire original Sailor Moon Manga Series.

Read books by authors of color.

So I kinda met my goals so yay? For 2020 the main goal will be to read 20 books. And I’ll add three sub-goals:

Read more books by authors of color, read The Outsiders (since I skipped a year (or two) of reading it), and read the entire original run of the Sailor Moon manga.

 

I think these are doable. What about you my friends? Did you accomplish what you set out to read this year? What are your reading goals for the new decade?  Let me know in the comment section below or on my Facebook page.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! See you in 2020.
