    2019 Reading Challenge + January TBR

    *Welcome to the January 2019 Reading Challenge here @thecozyshelf.

    The Cozy Shelf 2019 Reading Challenge + my January TBR

    2019 Reading Challenges

    I’m participating in a few reading challenges this year:

    • The Modern Mrs. Darcy reading challenge
    • My personal Goodreads challenge
    • The Cozy Shelf reading challenge

    This year, my goal for Goodreads is to read 100 books. I read 71 books this year, and I wasn’t really focusing on completing my goal, which was 60 books. So I think with some actual motivation behind it I can get to 100 books pretty easy.

    The Modern Mrs. Darcy reading challenge is year long and you can find all the info here. I’m taking this one a month at a time because that’s how it’s set up and because I’m a mood reader. Last year this challenge had specific prompts for each month and I just wasn’t motivated by it. My book pick for January is Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and it fulfills the prompt: “A backlist title by a favorite author”.

    The Cozy Shelf challenge is also year long and you can also take it a month at a time. Mainly for the reason that most of us are mood readers and I don’t like telling you what to read. I want to encourage you to pick up a book, not to make it feel like an assignment. You can find all the info and sign up for the free prompt checklist + monthly updates here.

    Or you can just sign up right here:

    My book pics for The Cozy Shelf challenge are Switch on Your Brain for the prompt: “A book about mental health” and Whichwood for the prompt: “A book you bought for the cover”.

    January 2019 TBR

    The rest of my TBR for January 2019 is mostly books I’ve had on my to read list (and my shelf) for ages. Ok, not ages, but it feels that way sometimes!
