MY 2019 GOALS CHECK IN

goalsfeature

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with an update for all of my goals I set for myself at the start of the year! This year has been a bit of a mess and I haven’t really kept up with my goals or checked them regularly so this should be interesting, hopefully, I’ll surprise myself!

My goals categories are blogging, school, life and reading so feel free to skip ahead if one sounds more interesting than the other!

MY 2019 GOALS!

goalsfeature

This might be somewhat of a long blog post so sorry guys! Last year I was a mess (still am lol) and posted a bunch of goals posts without specifying that they were goals so when I went to check up on them throughout the year I got too confused and just gave up.

So, this year, I am putting all my goals (blogging, school, life, reading etc) in one post in the hopes of not making my life harder, though this is a goals list so maybe I’m talking out my ass (probably).

MY 2019 TO BE READ SHELF | 20 books, oh lord!

tbrfeature

Hey guys! It’s the new year and I’m back on my bookish grind here on the blog after a crazy blogmas and I’m back to my normal Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule! During Blogmas I talked about my top 13 most anticipated releases of the year and today I’m talking about the top 20 books I would really like to get to throughout the year!

These are all books I’ve been meaning to read for years and have recently become more interested in or in the case with the last 5 books on my list, these are books I’m super hyped for this year!

I don’t think I’ll add any more books to this list this year, but in case I do I have made a Goodreads Shelf. Do you guys do this too?

5 Books I Want To Read In Winter

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with the top 5 books I’d like to read this season! I’m not much of a seasonal reader, but, I am already freezing my touche off, so I tried to pick “warmer” reads that I figured would make me happy. 

Click on the covers to go to the Goodreads pages!

Legendary (Caraval, #2)  Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns #1)  The Song of Achilles  The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1)  The Mermaid

LEGENDARY

I will admit that we are only 2 days into Winter when I am writing this and I’m already listening to the audio. I haven’t had the time to go to the bookstore lately so, I caved and bought the audiobook. So far, I think it’s really interesting and I’ve been having a really fun time listening to it!

THREE DARK CROWNS

I am roughly 5 pages into this and so far I am mostly confused. There are soo many characters already and I’m hoping it starts to make sense soon. I don’t know if this is going to be my kind of book, but I am willing to give it a great shot!

THE SONG OF ACHILLES

I am planning on reading this as part of the Marvel-A-Thon as my Thor pick and I’m super excited to get to it! I have never heard a bad thing about this book and it’s been a while since I got a good cry in from a book so I think this book is well in order! I’m really excited about this one and can’t wait to get to it!

THE FINAL EMPIRE

I’d love to re-read the whole trilogy but I don’t know how unrealistic that is, so I would at least like to re-read book one. I love this trilogy and think Brandon Sanderson creates really amazing worlds so I’m super excited to finally re-read these books!

THE MERMAID

If you know anything about me, you know that I loved Christina Henry’s Lost Boy so of course, I am excited about her newest book! I will admit that I’ve never actually seen The Little Mermaid, but I am really intrigued to see if this is anything like that with a sort of crossover with The Greatest Showman. I honestly have no idea what this is about, other than that it’s written by Christina Henry.

5 BOOKS I WANT TO READ IN AUTUMN // I BRANCH OUT IN THIS ONE

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with all the book I want to read this Autumn (March-May). I am not a seasonal reader though, so don’t expect Autumnal reads in this post!

I am not currently in school at the moment so I think I might try adding some longer books to this list, we’ll see how we go!

Remember: The book covers will take you to the Goodreads pages & red writing is all links!

1. Misery –  Stephen King

Misery
This will be the year I finally read King I refuse to fail in this. I have considered taking part in Aprilius Maximus’ Stephen King project and while I don’t think I will completely start from the beginning with his books I do think I might try to start from the beginning after I read a few of his suspense novels. I know basically nothing about this book other than that my mum said I would like it, especially if I want to get into King and what mum says goes and I’m hoping to get to it soon!

You can find the Goodreads page for the Stephen King Project here.

 

2. Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë

Jane Eyre

Okay so I am currently reading this but I wanted to add Jane Eyre to the list anyway just to keep myself accountable! Emma @ Emmareadstoomuch was talking about how much she loves Jane Eyre last month and she really inspired me to pick it up!

So far I’m really loving it and think this is definitely my favourite cover that I’ve found so far! I am also really hoping to get this read before My Plain Jane (My Lady Jane #2) comes out in June, I think, because it will be based around Jane Eyre and we all know how the Lady Janies twist stories and make us laugh. I can’t wait.

 

3. Children of the Knight – Michael J. Bowler

Children of the Knight

I started this a few months ago and was really loving it but as per usual I ended up putting it down and getting really distracted, but I have been really feeling watching Merlin, so I feel like this might be a good way to still hang out with the characters without having to watch any tv because ya girl’s got a bad track record.

This book seems 100% up my alley being really well-received on Goodreads and an LGBT King Arthur retelling. Hopefully, I’ll be able to smash this one out in a day or two and just completely fall in love with this one! If all goes to plan I should have a review of this one up for you guys in a few days! 🤞🤞🤞

 

4. The Wicked Cometh – Laura Carlin

The Wicked Cometh

Okay so I have only known about this book for a week and I am already so prepared to love this book. A few days ago I wrote a post called Am I Sick of YA? where Avery @ Redrocketpanda recommended this to me after I complained that I didn’t have any good mysteries to read.

The Wicked Cometh sounds fantastic, Avery described it as a f/f historical fiction murder mystery and from that description I was hooked. I pretty much immediately put this is on hold at the library and hope it will end up being the 2018 release I read in March!

 

5. The Princess Saves Herself in this One – Amanda Lovelace

The Princess Saves Herself in this One (Women are Some Kind of Magic, #1)

Yep, you’re really seeing this. Poetry.

Who am I? Who have I become? Is this the real life or okay, I’ll stop now…

So, I’ve decided this year that I really want to make an effort to try and branch out with my reading, hence the title. I’ve never really been one for poetry and I’ve pretty much just been that person who heard one person say it was dumb and so I stayed away from the genre from day dot.

I’ve heard some stuff about the second book of poetry in this series and so, me being me I bought the first one because I MUST READ EVERYTHING IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER!
