2019 Wrap Up

Hey everyone!
I can’t believe the year is already over! 2019 has gone so fast, and a lot has happened in this year!

In regards to books, and my blog, I have had a pretty successful year, and am really happy with everything I have achieved.
I thought I would share a general wrap up of the year with you all.


GoodReads Challenge

At the beginning of the year, I set myself a target of 30 books, which is the same as my target for 2018. In 2018, I only just managed to reach my 30 book target, but this year, I have really surprised myself!

In 2019, I have read a total of 51 books!

I still haven’t decided what I will be setting my goal as for 2020. I have a lot happening next year (including getting MARRIED!!!) so I may not get as much time to read as I have this year, but I also don’t want to set my goal too low.


Favourite and Least Favourite Books of the Year

Favourite: From Inside the House by WD Jackson-Smart

REVIEW HERE!

Least Favourite: Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

REVIEW HERE!

Although I have had a couple of very disappointing reads this year, I definitely had a great year of reading, with a lot of 5 star books! Fingers crossed, 2020 will be as positive.


Authors I Have Discovered This Year, and Loved.

As I said, I have read a lot of great books this year, but what I didn’t say is that a lot of those books were by authors that I had never read before!

Here are a few of my favourites:

  • WD Jackson-Smart
  • James Herbert
  • Deborah Masson
  • Stephanie Grey

Reading Goals

Apart from my GoodReads challenge, I didn’t really set myself any reading goals. I did want to try and read more books that I already own, but because of blog tours and review requests, it didn’t really happen. So, I will be trying to do this in 2020 instead!


My Blog

2019 is also the year that I started this blog! I only started this blog in April, and I really didn’t expect anyone to actually read it, so for it to have come so far in just 8 months is amazing! Thank you to everyone who follows, reads and interacts with my blog, I have made some great friends from being part of this community, and starting this blog is the best thing I ever did!


How has your year been?
Did you meet all of your goals for 2019?
