My best reading year since I started using Goodreads in 2012.🥳

I also completed:

🎉#MountTBR (Mt. Everest-100 books)

I‘ve read some awesome books, but most of all, I‘ve really enjoyed another year of reading and stacking and swapping and book-clubbing and chatting and getting to know so many Litsy friends.

Happy New Year! ❤️

sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt I backed my goal for this year down a little. I decided there‘s no reason to keep increasing it every year and have to stress about it. As long as we are all reading and enjoying what we like, it doesn‘t matter. ❤️ 11mo
sprainedbrain @Reggie I might as well be a badass at something! 😂 11mo

Tagged book will probably be the last one I finish in 2018. 2019 bookish resolutions:

1) Read minimum of 70 books.
2) Complete Read Harder 2018 challenge/try to complete the 2019 challenge.
3) Read 10 books from #GilmoreGirlsreadingChallenge, which should help me make headway with the #litsyclassicsatoz I‘m still working on.
4) Complete the #booked2019 challenge.
5) Participate in more Litsy swaps and buddy reads.

Loved this very short sarcastic comedy of manners. Can you imagine if the ladies of the lunch club had seen this photo when looking in the encyclopedia?! #litsyclassicsatoz

Still working on this year‘s #litsyclassicsAtoZ. Just finished this one. Must admit...much preferred Mel Brook‘s version. :) Or the Munster‘s version.

This Canlit classic is based on a real love triangle murder that took place in Quebec in 1840. I bought it for #litsyclassicsatoz but haven't got around to reading it yet. Someday!

TrishB Great cover 👍🏻 12mo
writerlibrarian There is a wonderful movie made with a very young Genevieve Bujold. 12mo
merelybookish @writerlibrarian Cool! I wonder if there is an English version. 12mo
merelybookish @TrishB It is a sleigh... I think. 🙂 12mo
merelybookish @LeahBergen I want to read it. Maybe over the holidays. 12mo
merelybookish @Tamra @Cinfhen Yes! I'll let you know how it is, when I finally read it. 🙂 12mo

Finally read this little gem. What an amazing character study! (Thanks for the copy @BookishMe)
Afterwards, I decided to check in on my #litsyclassicsatoz stats. Ive crossed off 13 letters, if Les Mis counts as starting with L. (Meanwhile I have multiple C, M, & O candidates.)
Unlikely I'll complete this challenge but will try to knock off a few more letters before Jan. How are other people doing?

oOArankaOo This one is on my TBR! Have the same cover too ^^ 13mo
Cathythoughts I picked up this book recently... loved the tv series. Can‘t wait to read it 👍🏻❤️ 13mo
merelybookish @oOArankaOo It did not disappoint! I'm glad I finally read it! @Cathythoughts Oh, I didn't know there was a TV series! Is it recent? I saw the movie with Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson back in the 90s, which I liked! 13mo
Cathythoughts Sorry, I meant the movie ... with those 2 amazing actors you mention ... 👍🏻 13mo
merelybookish @Cathythoughts Such good actors! I plan to re-watch sometime. 13mo

Only 6 of these were ones I originally had planned on, but I went through what I‘ve actually read so far and replaced the other 20 with other classics that I read through #ShakespeareReadAlong #EarthseedBuddyRead #JaneAustenReadAlong #Reading1001 etc and with that I am counting this #ReadingChallenge complete

And a few also worked for my #MountTBR and #192019 challenges, so that‘s a plus.😉

DGRachel I love when a book multitasks and works for more than one challenge. I don‘t repeat a book for prompts within a challenge, but I do like checking off boxes in multiple challenges! Good for you! 13mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DGRachel Yes, I completely agree, it‘s a great feeling when that happens. 13mo
Daisey Congrats on finishing it with plenty of time to spare! 13mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Daisey Haha, that‘s ok, it just gives me 2 months to finish up the other ones I started. My overall MountTBR, for one, is WAY behind schedule! 13mo
Andrew65 Got one more book to go on my #LitsyAtoZChallenge. Congratulations! 🍾🥂🎈👏 13mo
Gezemice Congrats! That‘s awesome! I have reworked mine, too, but still have a few to go on it. You are up on it this year! 13mo
TheBookHippie Finishing up my LAST ONE!!! 13mo

Currently reading on #serialreader. This one is kind of a relief as far as language style goes after reading a few very long-winded classics. Surprised I haven‘t read it before but here we go.
