2019 Reading

So the challenge has been set and accepted well by me!

So this year I have set the following

2019 Audiobook listening – I have aimed for 15 audiobooks

2019 NetGalley – I am aiming to clear off 55 this figure includes my Buddy Read challenge set

2019 New Releases – Because of the blog tours I know I will take part in I have given myself a target of 24 as I do not want to overstretch my reading too

Backlist reading – This was a challenge I set on my Top 10 tuesday post, see here , so obviously the number here is 10

Buddy Reading – This is what me and my lovely buddy Kate at Portable Magic as we try to clear up our NetGalley shelves and read the Angela Marson series so we have gone for 43 books

Month by Month – Well you need to check out the drop downs for that!

Review Requests – Because like a lot of bloggers I get emailed books from authors directly I want to focus on them and keep to my commitments as I was awful in 2018 and I want to get that rectified! So here the total is 20!

Novella Reading – I have just discovered how much fun it is to read novellas! And I have found some fab series because of it, so I am planning on 30 novellas this year

So grand total for 2019 is………….


Now I managed to hit the 200 mark in 2018 but that was a lot of hectic reading and no socialising and I made myself ill, so I wanted to calm it down a little. I am aware that 120 does not add to the amounts above but I wanted to not put myself under too much pressure.
