Thank you @monalyisha for such a fun reading adventure! I was paired with @thegreensofa and I have only just begun her list!! This was actually my first Litsy Challenge 😊 It felt even more exciting knowing how personalized the challenge was because Alyisha hand sorted everyone!! Super fun and I hope it happens again. I want to keep reading books outside of my norm. 0/24 books read from the giveaway #NewYearWhoDis #OhHai #ItsMe #IReadNow

thegreensofa I‘m up to my fourth from your list. Hasn‘t this just been the best! Lock Every Door will be my next one. ✨👏🏻❤️ 3d

Thank you so much @Dawnrod1970 I got your package yesterday! I wasn‘t able get to the post office until yesterday so yours went out then. I‘m annoyed because although I sent priority it still won‘t be there until the 7th or 8th.🙄 You will also be receiving a separate email on the 10th for Part 2!😊 I didn‘t get to write on the envelope after the man printed the label for me, so unfortunately it‘s not marked with the hashtag. #ReadInTheNewYearSwap

Dawnrod1970 Awesome ty! Can‘t wait for you to open. I hope you like everything 😊 2mo

🎆My NYE was spent with my group of friends and family I have collected in 2019. This was the best NYE I have ever had everyone is so accepting and loving and I feel very blessed to have them all. We spent the evening dancing, laughing and playing board games .

Last tradition of the holiday season is to enjoy what my husband and I call “Zoo-Year” where we go to the zoo on New Year‘s Day. (We try to spend the day outside, enjoying each other‘s company and just in little/to no stress since the superstition of us spending the rest of the year how we spend the 1st.

My goal for the year...I am a full time working mom of 3 so this is pushing it 🤷‍♀️ #NewYearNewGoal

post image

I'm going to set my Goodreads challenge goal for 150 books - the past couple of years I have surpassed (barely!) my goal of 120 books, so I'm going to push myself a bit this year. I'm going to participate in a few reading challenges - the Reading Women challenge, the Book Riot challenge, and the challenge through my local library.

If Icount audiobooks, then I should be able to hit this goal. I have a long commute so 1 audiobook a week and one regular book a week is doable.
I need to make a bujo page.
What's your goal for the year?

cleoh Mine is also 100, and I count the audiobooks I listen to towards my goal! 2mo
Demeter2112 Mine is 150 - I don't use audiobooks often, but I do count them towards my goal if I listen to them. Good luck 👍 2mo
crazyspine @cleoh @Demeter2112 good luck to yous 2mo

I decided this year not to put so much stress on myself in reading as many books as possible. I havent hit my goal in the past 3 years so I figured I would do something attainable. I also want to take my time reading and enjoy the story as well instead of worrying about reading it fast to get through it happy new year my friends. I hope yall all get everything you desire in the new year!! Xoxo

Scochrane26 I like to do a lower goal, too. I set mine at 50. This leaves room for reading longer books & not worrying about quantity. 2mo
Moonprismpower Yeah me too! I set my goal to 25. I always feels successful at the end of the year and too high a goal results in me reading a book but not remembering it at all! 2mo
cariashley 👏👏 I‘m doing the same for the first time this year! Have been hitting my goal of 125 but just barely, and it‘s not worth the stress. Lowering it to 75. 2mo
wordslinger42 I also like doing a lower goal sometimes! This will be my second year not doing a Goodreads challenge. I actually enjoy it more when I skip a year or two between. Makes reading more enjoyable for me and not just a task to complete! 2mo
essayareayaitch Last year I had sub-goals, I didn't meet any of them. At the same time, having those sub-goals helped me to diversify genres read (I mainly read romance, so those get consumed at a high rate) 2mo

• December 31st ❄️ ❄️ of the #WinterGames

My 2020 reading goals will be flexible, as I'm navigating new motherhood while juggling an insurmountable TBR.

📚 I'll try the Goodreads challenge again and I'll probably fall short of my yearly goal, as usual.

📚 I want to dive back into the Harry Potter series and finish in the next year or two.

📚 I'll try to read 50 books (including children's books) this year •


wanderinglynn Great goals! 🙌🏻 2mo
ruskigurl16 You have a lot on your plate. Be proud of what you did achieve and remember that being gentle to yourself sometimes is the best thing you can do! 2mo
Readage @ruskigurl16 Agreed and thank you for that reminder ♥️ 2mo

2019 included a lot more books than I imagined it would when it kicked off 364 days ago! I discovered a bunch of new authors, read some of the best fiction I‘ve ever come across, & learned a lot about myself as a reader.

There‘s about 8hrs left until midnight in my part of the world so just enough time to finish one more book before the decade ends... 😉

Happy New Years, Littens! 🎉

suvata Yay! Happy new year to you. 🍾 2mo

@ads0123 Thank you so much for this fabulous list of books for #NewYearWhoDis I am super excited because I see some that are on my TBR list! I am on the waiting list for Stalking Jack the Ripper. It says the wait time is about 15 weeks, so I will be reading it, but it may not be a January read. I am intrigued by some of the other titles & will be looking into them soon.

I am so excited we were matched!

@lauren.lerner this list is so exciting! Most of the titles are unknown to me, and I can‘t wait to dive into them!

I‘ve read # 3, 9 and 15, and # 5, 6, 14 and 20 aren‘t available from my library or Scribd, so I‘ll focus on the other 13 books. I‘m not sure I‘ll get through them all, but I‘m hoping with a mix of audio and print I can make it through most. I‘m really excited about the Jemisin books, they have been on my tbr forever! #NewYearWhoThis

#Newyearwhodis Here is the list I received from my match @Jerdencon I haven‘t read those with the stars although a few have been on my radar. I can‘t wait to dive into these books. I probably won‘t get them all read in January but will eventually. I am especially excited about #7 and 8 as they are books I haven‘t heard of. Thank you, Denise. And thanks to @monalyisha I love this!

monalyisha You‘re welcome! 😊 2mo
Jerdencon I can‘t wait to hear what you think! 😀 enjoy reading and happy New Year! 2mo
Crazeedi My kind of list! 2mo

My #litsyresolutions are:
📚 Read more broadly. I tend to stick with the same genres, same authors. I need to expand my reading horizons
📚 Post more reviews. I think I may go over board on my life posts or events I'm in. Next year I want to try to review every book I read.
📚 Make it fun! For a bit, posting felt like a chore. I want it to be fun again, so more things I love! Q&A's, readathons, swaps!!

MidnightBookGirl I love the idea of more reviews! I definitely want to comment more. I plan on reposting about #LitsyResolutions closer to January, it just struck me today so I went with it! 3mo
