Happy New Year / Happy Old Year

Happy new year to all my fellow readers! Last year has been a good year! According to goodreads I read 101 books, and I’m sure a few of those are children’s books but that’s still more than I’ve ever read in a year! I hope 2019 is just as amazing.

Moving to Texas

We are moving to Texas over the next couple of weeks. While we are house hunting and getting settled I will probably not be very good about keeping the blog updated, but I certainly won’t stop reading.

What are the stats?

That’s a pretty high average rating. That means I liked almost everything I read. The only one I remember DNFing was The Once and Future King.

Did I complete my goals?

My goals for 2018 were:

  • Read 75 books
  • Read 2 non-fiction books
  • Read 2 graphic novels
  • Remember that reading should be fun

I completed all of my goals! I read 3 graphic novels: Maus, Ms. Marvel, and Serenity. I read several non-fiction books. My favorite memoir was Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants, and my favorite general non-fiction was This Phenomenal Life.

I read A LOT of Fantasy and Science Fiction and a smattering of mystery and general fiction. I’ll have to do a separate post for my favorites because the list keeps getting longer the more time I spend thinking about it.

Goals for 2019

I’m going to try for 100 books in 2019. I did it once, I can do it again!

I want to read a variety of books so this year let’s aim for at least:

  1. 2 Classics
  2. 5 non-fiction
  3. 3 graphic novels

I also want to get a non reading hobby, like playing tennis.
