On May 31st, 2018 I started on this book blogging journey. I really had no idea what I was getting myself into or how much I would truly enjoy blogging. These were months of learning and the book community was so very helpful! I’m also thankful for all of you. It’s a delight to be a part of this as I don’t think there is another community like this. It’s amazing!
I do this as a hobby and it has given me an outlet to share my love of books, and for that I’m thankful.
As I get into the recap of 2018, I prefer just to state the numbers instead of it being wordy. So, here it is…

Thank you for being on this journey with me! Here’s to a great 2019!
How did 2018 treat you?
Is your TBR out of control? Need help catching up on all the books you’ve missed the last few years? Then the Beat the Backlist reading challenge might be for you! It is a reading challenged to help those with ever-growing TBR lists. The challenge runs from January 1st, 2019 through December 31, 2019. It is hosted by Austine over at NovelKnight.com.
This year I am joining her, and many others, in this challenge hoping it will help me knock a few of my books on my ever TBR list. If you’re interested in finding out more about Austine, who is running Beat the Backlist challenge, you check out her social media sites below.

In trying to break down my reading challenges for 2019, I have set a Goodreads goal of 40 books this year, and a minimum of 12 books need to be from the library (I’m also participating in the Library Love Challenge. hosted by Angela at Angel’s Guilty Pleasures). So, for this challenge, I’m setting a goal of reading 20 books from my TBR pile. That leaves an opening for 8 books that I may want to purchase/read throughout the year.
My goal for this challenge is to read 20 books that are currently on my TBR list. Just a few of those books are reflected below.
Have you read any of these books?
Are you participating in a reading challenge this year?
