It’s hard to believe another year is coming to an end and a New Year is beginning!


So here’s a look back at 2018 and a few goals to aim for in 2019!

Some of my favourite reads in 2018 (check out the rest HERE):

General Fiction



Historical Fiction







Contemporary Romance





Update of 2018 Challenges:

Mount TBR 2018 Challenge: I reached my Mount Blanc goal by reading 26 books from my TBR Pile.

Beat the Backlist 2018 Challenge: I read a total of 26 books from my TBR list that were published prior to 2018.








Goals for 2019:

  • Read and Review fewer books for NetGalley up to a maximum of 100 and keep my Feedback Ratio above 90%.
  • Read at least one book per month of a back title that I have purchased and own.
  • Read at least one book per month that I was sent by an author/publisher in the past couple of years that I didn’t get a chance to read/review.
  • Try and read a total of 200 books (no more ?)


And lastly, I must thank all the authors, publishers, bloggers, and of course my family who have not only provided me with wonderful books to read but have supported me all year-long. I am truly honoured.
