My 2019 reading Goals

Read 100 books. I set this goal for myself every year, and most years I have achieved it. Except for the year that my brain was fried from pregnancy. Stupid pregnancy brain.


Read 1 Graphic Novel or Comic from each decade from 1900 and on till now. There is a wealth of beautifully written work out there to discover, and all very stylistically different.


Participate in the Book Riot reading challenge. This looks like an excellent way to broaden my horizons. Here are the choices:

  1. An epistolary novel or collection of letters
  2. An alternate history novel
  3. A book by a woman and/or AOC (Author of Color) that won a literary award in 2018
  4. A humor book
  5. A book by a journalist or about journalism
  6. A book by an AOC set in or about space
  7. An #ownvoices book set in Mexico or Central America
  8. An #ownvoices book set in Oceania
  9. A book published prior to January 1, 2019, with fewer than 100 reviews on Goodreads
  10. A translated book written by and/or translated by a woman
  11. A book of manga
  12. A book in which an animal or inanimate object is a point-of-view character
  13. A book by or about someone that identifies as neurodiverse
  14. A cozy mystery
  15. A book of mythology or folklore
  16. A historical romance by an AOC
  17. A business book
  18. A novel by a trans or nonbinary author
  19. A book of nonviolent true crime
  20. A book written in prison
  21. A comic by an LGBTQIA creator
  22. A children’s or middle-grade book (not YA) that has won a diversity award since 2009
  23. A self-published book
  24. A collection of poetry published since 2014

If you would like to join me in some of these goals, please do!

Happy New Year!
