I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Moonlight Snow was asking about 2019 reading plans. I am so glad that someone else is already making plans for 2019!
I signed up for too many reading challenges in 2018. I'm over my goal of reading 220 books, but I will never finish the list of books that I'd planned for 2018. Thankfully that doesn't stress me a bit. I'll do what I can and then just let it go!
So I had basically decided to give myself a year to fly and be free. Read whatever took my fancy, whenever I wanted to. However, I've had a look at what I've already organized and realized that some of my reading is mapped out.
1. Planned for 2019: http://booklikes.com/apps/reading-lists/949/planned-for-2019
This includes 12 selections for my real-life book club, a certain number of books for my Science Fiction & Fantasy reading project, books by authors attending this year's When Words Collide conference, plays for my Shakespeare project, and new releases that I'm anticipating and/or series that I really want to continue.
During the month of May, I intend to read books featuring mermaids.
3. Summer Reading Theme: A Study in Sherlock
4. Halloween Bingo: Should our hostesses deign to run such an event for us in 2019!
5. Remembrance Day Reading: There are several books by Primo Levi and Elie Wiesel that I would like to read during November.
6. Christmas Books:
So, even though I'm not signing up for any challenges, my reading life in 2019 will be full and active.
What are you planning for the New Year?
