My Reader Goals 2019

My good old Kindle

I challenged myself to read 52 books this year.
And I have a plan… 🧐

…Read more “Hell, Yeah!” books.

The past few years I was experimenting a lot and reading books I would not really pick up at first glance. And looking back I saw that my average rating for all the books I read was 3.9. I think that’s low. That means I didn’t read enough books that I thought were really exciting. I read lots of “meh” books.
You can see a list of all my read books here.

This year I want to read books that have been on my “to be read list” for some time because they are sequels to stories I already love.

Also, I was inspired by the Reading Glasses challenge (great podcast about Book Culture, BTW) and borrowed some of their ideas to my Reader Goals:

  • Read a graphic novel (or two…)
  • Read more of authors I already know and love
  • Read a book by a trans author
  • Listen to 1 audiobook per month (non-fiction)
  • Listen to 1 fiction audiobook [never tried it before!]
  • Read sequels of the Series I already love:
  • The Expanse by James S. A. Corey (#4 to #7)
  • Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells (#3)
  • Old Man’s War by John Scalzi (#2 to #6)
  • Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger (#2 to #5)
  • The Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski
  • Start Reading The Dresden Files Series by Jim Butcher [never read it before! Wanna try!]
  • Read books I’ve already have purchased/pre-ordered:
  • The Armored Saint by Myke Cole
  • Paladin of Souls (World of the Five Gods #2) by Lois McMaster Bujold
  • Changeless (Parasol Protectorate #2) by Gail Carriger
  • Enough by Patrick Rhone (Kindle Unlimited)
  • Drive by Daniel H. Pink
  • Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport [pre-ordered]
  • Team Human by Douglas Rushkoff [pre-ordered]
  • Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made by Jason Schreier
  • Read some picks from The Sword and Laser Bookclub and Vaginal Fantasy Bookclub throughout the year, because they are awesome (love their podcast)!
  • Also read some picks from Vaginal Fantasy

I am sure I’ll keep adding titles to this list but I will try to consider this my priority list for 2019 😎
