My 2019 Goals




I think I’m going to be a bit more ambitious with my 2019 goals.  I may not reach all of them, but I’m going to try my best.


Read 100 Books

This shouldn’t be tough for me, but it’s much higher than my Goodreads goal for 2018.


Get 1500 followers on my blog.

I would love to hit 1500 wordpress followers.  Once that happens, I’ll be having another giveaway.  My followers have really slowed down a lot once I hit 1000.  I’m not sure if I’ll make it, but I hope so.


Get 750 followers on instagram.

This will probably be one of my toughest goals.  It’s taken me quite awhile to get followers on instagram, mostly because I don’t use it the way others do.  But I’m on a desktop all day and only use instagram when I have my ipad out.  I’m still hoping for the best since I do try to post pictures a couple times a week.  I also share out TBR and Beyond author chat schedule there.


Participate in monthly challenges.

This shouldn’t be tough at all.  I might struggle in April when we go on vacation, but I should be good.


Read 50+ books published in 2019.

I think I should make this goal since I tend to read more arcs than anything.  I just need to hit this number early before I start on the 2020 arcs.


Read 5 books published before 2019.

I really want to start getting to some of my older books.  I would love to read one per month, but I just don’t see that happening.  So my goal is 5.


Receive 10 physical arcs from publishers or authors.

This is a big goal that I don’t know if I’ll be able to do.  Maybe with blog tours.  Physical books are just so much easier for me to read.  I read a lot on my kindle, but the physical books are easier on my eyes.  And I love taking pics of them to share.  It’s just so much easier to promote a book if I can share a photo. 


I will likely add some more goals, but these are the ones I wrote in my planner.  Do you have any goals for 2019?

  1. Sounds like an ambitious list, but I bet you can do it! I am still rethinking my blogging and social media goals. For reading, I could make a list, but I when see a new book I like, I want it and there I go, getting off track. That’s fine, because reading is something I love and I don’t want to plan so much I lose my joy. My big goal is to query agents until I get one in 2019. If I don’t get one, then self pub in 2020.
