2019 Reading List & Challenges

2019 Reading List & Challenges

I’m so addicted to reading challenges, even though I don’t always complete them. I decided to keep a list of all the challenges I’ve signed up for this year in one post, for easier tracking. The books I plan to read to complete all these challenges can be found on my Goodreads 2019 TBR list. Beat the Backlist I have a huge TBR pile, so this challenge is perfect for me. Any book published in 2018 or earlier (any genre, format, length, etc.) counts towards this challenge, and you can set your own goal for how many you would like […]

#TopTenTuesday: Libraries I’d Love to Visit

#TopTenTuesday: Libraries I’d Love to Visit

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. I love this week’s topic! I mean, who doesn’t love a good library? I’ve seen some stunning pictures of minimalist, modern libraries on Pinterest, but I have to say I prefer the gaudy, traditional libraries with gorgeous Baroque architecture. I imagine they would smell deliciously […]

#TopTenTuesday: The Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

#TopTenTuesday: The Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there is a new topic or theme to base your top ten list on. You can find more details about it and see the list of topics here. I have to admit, my attention span is pretty short these days so I don’t read huge novels very often. Books around 300-400 pages are ideal for me, so this list is made up of books with a page count of 500 or more. Needless to […]
