Completed: My 2019 Reading Challenge!

Each year, I try to create a reading challenge that’s not only fun and challenging, but also realistic. This year, I set the bar pretty high, and couldn’t be happier with the results. I’ve read over 80 books for this challenge, 36 of those being books that have sat on my kindle for far too long. I’ve discovered a lot of new authors and exciting books in 2019 and can not wait to see what next years challenge will bring.

My 2019 Reading Challenge

Posted on

It’s that time of year again! As you know, there is nothing more that I love then challenging myself when it comes to the books I read. Whether it’s a new author, series, a genre that takes me out of my comfort zone or being able to tackle some books that have been on my tbr for far too long; I live for a good reading challenge. In 2018, I stepped up my game not only with the books that I read, but also by reading 2 books that I already owned per month. It was hard. It was fun. It was a great challenge. And I’m happy to report that I finished my challenge.

For 2019’s Reading Challenge, I really wanted to once again challenge myself and kick my never ending to-read list’s butt!! And I am more than ready for the challenge.

Here’s my list for 2019:

Re-read a favorite book
A book by an author new to me 
Read The Bourbon Kings by JR Ward
Read Don’t speak Katy Regnery
