Down the TBR Hole | March Deadlines

Down the TBR Hole was originally created by Lia @ Lost in a Story

Welcome to the first of my Down the TBR Hole deadline reviews! If you’ve ever read any of my Down the TBR Hole posts, you may have noticed that I also assign myself a deadline date for those books that I do decide to keep. Although this is not a feature of the original Down the TBR Hole, I know that I would likely continue to let these books sit on my TBR shelf unless I gave myself a motivation to read them. By assigning deadlines, it was my hope that I would be giving myself an incentive to hurry up and read the books or else force myself to discard them from my TBR – holding me accountable for my keeps and motivating me to read!

Let’s see how I did for my Round One – March Deadline books:

2019 Goals

Happy (almost) New Year, friends!

I know I said it in almost every single wrap-up/TBR post this year, but I literally can’t believe how quickly this year flew and now its New Years Eve?! I’ve had such a great year this year and can’t wait to see what 2019 is going to bring. One of my favourite things to do to bring in the New Year is share my goals with you all in an effort to feel somewhat prepared for the coming year.

As 2018 was my first proper year of blogging, I thought it would be cool to see how I did with my 2018 goals before sharing my goals for 2019!

2019 Reading Challenges

This year I took part in my first proper reading challenges, Beat the Backlist and the Goodreads Challenge, with varying success. Although I absolutely smashed my Goodreads Challenge, I struggled to balance backlist books with new releases and ARCS as well as log my reading progress with the BtB database to register points. However, I had a lot of fun with reading challenges and found that they (mostly) helped me keep on track with my reading!

For 2019, I’m committing myself to even more reading challenges and am super excited to take part. I’ve matched my challenges up to my reading goals, which I’ll be sharing with you all on New Years Eve, but for today I’m sharing with you all which challenges I’ll be taking part in and 8 books I will read for each as well as linking you up to the hosts so you can sign up too if you want! A massive thanks to the wonderful Tina for her 2019 Reading Challenge Index which helped me find some new challenges to take part in.
