2018 Wrap Up Post + 2019 Goals

This is a little late, oops. It's a busy time of year. 2018 has been... so very long and time no longer feels real. Let's talk about book stuff!

I posted 145 blog posts in 2018, which is awesome. I've actually only had one year with more posts, and that was way back in 2009 when I had motivation and stuff. I re-started doing posts like Can't Wait Wednesday and Book Blogger Hop to add more content, and I'm going to keep doing that. They work well for me.

Queer Summer Reading 2018 also went very well, if I do say so myself. That will return soon as well. Summer is coming eventually. (I tell myself, as it's -40.)

As for books, I read a solid 100. Which doesn't really jive so much with my "read less" goal but oh well. Let's talk about what I read. As usual, I will link my goodreads "Year in Books", and I made the usual pie chart.


Since I read 100 books this year, the percentage is also how many books are in each category. And the last three years for fun. Click to enlarge.



So, definitely a change in the comics section! I more than doubled how many comics I read this year. And as you know, I always read collected volumes, so times that number by 4 to get more of an idea of how many single issue comics I read this year.

Since I'm posting my reading challenge wrap-up first, here's the link to that.

I like having a book to challenge myself to read each month. It really helps with motivation, and doing a challenge that promotes reading diverse books also helps me be more mindful of what I'm reading, and what I need to read more of and I want to continue to do that. This year, I am going to the Fold (Festival of Literary Diversity)'s reading challenge, which I really like the sound of.

There's some stuff on here I don't normally read, and I am excited to read new stuff. I also want to continue to do the "Beat the Backlist" challenge, as I find that very satisfying, even if I didn't do the best at it. I got a new bookshelf for Christmas and I want to organize it XD Remind me to sign up for that once I post this, lol.

And last but not least, I'm setting my goodreads goal to 60 this year, to go easy on myself, and I again am going to the 50 Book Challenge 'cause it's fun, even though the website is buggy as heck sometimes.

So, that's about everything for now! How did your 2018 go? Are you excited for 2019? I am dearly hoping it treats us better than 2018 did.

Thanks for reading all year.

Peace and cookies,
Laina
