One of my main priorities for 2019 is to read some of my own books. I own 571 books that I haven’t read, which is frankly ridiculous. In 2018 so far, I have acquired 217 books and read 62. I’m fortunate enough to have a room largely dedicated to storing my books but that doesn’t mean that I need to keep filling the space with books that frankly I’m going to end up neglecting for years. So while I won’t be putting myself on any kind of ban, I am going to make a conscious effort to reduce the volume of books I buy.
As part of helping me get to the titles on my shelves, I’m going to be doing the Popsugar Reading Challenge for 2019. There are 40 ‘regular’ prompts and 10 ‘advanced’ prompts. I actually only read 50-60 books in an average year so I doubt I’ll even get to all of the regular prompts but if I make half I’ll be happy. I might post a TBR every quarter but I haven’t decided yet…ONTO THE PROMPTS!
There are some that will be easy to tick off (multiple character POVs are super popular in fantasy and I love ghost stories, for example). Then there are some that I don’t have a clue about, like a book written by a musician or a book recommended by a celebrity I admire. No idea what I’d read for those but hopefully something I already own! There’s a GoodReads group that I’ll be raiding for recommendations as we go too and I am excited 🙂
