Happy Library Shelfie Day, Plus 5 Classics I Reread in 2019, and my 2019 Goodreads Year in Review!

Happy Library Shelfie Day!

Yesterday, January 22, was National Library Shelfie Day! Here is my current book shelf!


What is on your shelf? TBR list? And how do you arrange your books?

I arranged mine in a rainbow theme for this shot. Be sure to tell me, which James Patterson book do you have on your shelf. His books, they’re everywhere, you can’t escape them. Pun intended.

Here are the magazines/comics on my shelf. I did a little spring cleaning recently and I totally forgot I had these. I love old comics and these ones are classics of classics!

Who are your favorite comic book characters? Mine? Superwoman and Ironman, hands down.


The Classics

I enjoy reading and rereading classics every now and then. Here are my top 5 that I read last year.

What classics you plan on reading in 2020?

5 Classics to Reread this Year

Goodreads Goals of 2019

And here is what I read over the course of last year. So many wonderful books out there!


Did you meet your reading goals in 2019?

What are you goals for this year?

I am setting my goals for 2020 to 24 books to read in a year because that is a number I’ll likely accomplish and feel good about.

I don’t much care to quantify my reading goals because I like to take my time with books and don’t want the pressure of having to reach a certain number. It takes the fun out of it for me and just doesn’t suit my personality. Probably because I am more of a mood reader. If I feel like reading, I’ll read. If not, I don’t worry too much about it.

Often I’ll start a book, put it away for a while. Start and finish a new book, and then come back to the one I was previously reading. I like to meander around in the reading world.

And as far as goals for reading certain types of books as far as genre and content? Same idea. I’ll read what I want to as the mood and season calls for it. I love surprises anyway!

There are so many great books out there! I’d love to know in the comments below what your thoughts are and be sure to list out any books you’d like to recommend!
