Are you a mood reader or do you plan ahead your reading goals? In the past, I've always had a certain number of books I wanted to read during the year and that was about as much planning as I did. For 2019, I'll still have a specific number of books I want to reach, but I'm also going to be a little bit more strategic as to the genre and topics and types of books I read as well . . . but I'm purposefully keeping my 2019 list short so that I still have plenty of time for "mood" reads.
.
Over the next couple weeks, I'll post the different categories and book titles on my 2019 list. .
I love reading about China, the country where I currently live. Here are four books about China that I want to read this year:
.
WILD SWANS: THREE DAUGHTERS OF CHINA by Jung Chang
THE CORPSE WALKER: REAL LIFE STORIES, CHINA FROM THE BOTTOM UP by Liao Yiwu
HUNGRY GHOSTS MAO'S SECRETE FAMINE by Jasper Becker
GEOGRAPHY OF THOUGHT: HOW ASIANS AND WESTERNERS THINK DIFFERENTLY AND WHY by Richard E. Nisbett
.
I know the last one isn't specifically China, but it's one that has been on my TBR list for way too long, so I slipped it in under this category ;-)
.
Have you read any amazing books about China that I should add to this list? Do you have any 2019 reading goals? .

I wished for the Harry Potter series since I was a kid, and because God love me so much, He gave me my most beloved ❤️, who gave me the series as a gift from Saint Nicholas ❤️
What can I say? I’m the luckiest and happiest woman on earth! ❤️ So, lets get cozy and start the reading! 🤓📖😍
Have you read HP? 😊

I love this quote! So true. I've just finished The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter and man I'm having a bit of a book hangover! Poor Joe - I was super unresponsive during the last quarter... so many revelations 😊 All at once!! Loved it and am now inspired to make my way through her backlog... that's one goal I can do in 2019! How are your reading goals going? Have you challenged yourself this year? #readinggoals #read2018 #bookhangover #igreads #karinslaughter #thriller #crimenovel #bookaddict #tbr #mystery

On the 10th day until Christmas 'Christmas Wombat' is our fave book to read to the kids!! Author: Jackie French
Illustrator: Bruce Whatley "Slept. Scratched. Slept." Indeed, it seems like Christmas will be just another day for the wombat . . . until she smells carrots! In this charming picture book, the star of Diary of a Wombat goes head to head with Santa's reindeer in competition for carrots--and wins. Then, as an accidental stowaway on Santa's sleigh, she learns that carrots are internationally available. No wonder she isn't hungry for treats on Christmas morning! Engaging illustrations delightfully complement the spare text in this unique, wombat's-eye view of a favorite holiday.

📖🎄🎁 Book 127_2018 - Dear Santa edited by Samuel Johnson OAM (although he says that’s a lie, and that Jacquie Brown did it really) - The first thing you need to understand is that I buy everything that @loveyoursister makes and sells. I fell in love with @samueljjohnson78 in The Secret Life of Us and then I read Love Your Sister back in Oct 2015 (my first book post on Instagram, in fact). Since then, I’ve been a serial post lover and double tapper and a consistent contributor to whatever fundy Sam was promoting. I’m a subscriber to @the.stick, I bought about a mile of five cent pieces and I’m a proud rainbow sock wearer. All of that aside, I always would have bought this book because I’m also a Christmas lover from a long line of Christmas lovers and the premise of this book had me captivated. A whole stack of good people, some of whom you will recognise, wrote letters to Santa to put in this book. None of them were paid and all of them did it to help raise money for research into vanquishing cancer. Sam does a lot of good things in the name of cancer vanquishment and all in loving memory of his sister, Connie. You should definitely buy this book. #dearsanta #samreads66

Here it is❤️ All of the books I’ve read this year and 2 more to go on my list. One from a reader’s recommendation and one from @lifeslibrarybookclub 📚 If I could describe my reading choices for 2018 in 2 words it would be “literary ecstasy” because I seriously got out of my comfort zone this year, holy shit. What an experience. I usually stick with a different psychological thriller every other week but I decided to change things up a bit. From Hemingway, Woolf, Keats, Eliot, to Greek mythology and origins, dark academia, feminism, traditional mystery, political pieces, theory and criticism essays, sixteenth century Henry Howard and Sir Thomas More, poetry of Mark Strand, to Plato and Aristotle, Dante and Dostoevsky, I’ve been around the block...this has been the best year of reading I’ve ever had. Sure, I didn’t make my reading goal this year of 75 books (yikes what a stretch) but if I didn’t take the time to enjoy what I was reading just to make numbers, then what is the point of reading at all?

I got this stable second-handed the first year of marriage. It use to have the entire cast of characters of the Christmas story and was placed very carefully so it wouldn’t get messed up.
•••
This is what my nativity set looks like after 12 years and 4 kids. The small kid’s nativity is now mixed-in with the original nativity and it sets low so my kid’s can enjoy it.
•••
I’ve heard of some unique nativity traditions. Anyone have one to share? Do you have one from a different country or a handed-down set?

Book rant:
A Court of Mist & Fury -Sarah. J. Mass
I am so surprised that I genuinely enjoyed this. I read (audible) A Court of Thorns and Roses and thought it was mediocre. But after reading (audible) ACOMAF, I *finally* get the SJM hype. It wasn't the most amazing book ever, but I wasn't counting down the pages until it was over. I still couldn't stand the sex scenes but OMG... this was really good! The book has some flaws but I loved how it actually (finally!) felt like a fantasy book and not just a romance.
Happy reading x

Happy Friday, book lovers! Do you have any plans for this weekend? Any holiday festivities to attend?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is what I hope to finish by the end of December. I’m just over here thinking: I think I can, I think I can.... I’m trying to utilize the power of positive thinking. 😂

Would you rather have a white Christmas or Christmas on the beach? 🎅🏻🎄🏖🌴⁣

A big thanks to @waterbrookmultnah for gifting me this advanced copy of American Omens by @travis.thrasher! ⁣

This book sounds thrilling and intriguing: ⁣

“In this taut thriller that imagines a near-future America following the decline of the Religious Right, where the Christ-followers who have anticipated a rising intolerance for their beliefs for decades find out they're right after all.”⁣

American Omens comes out February 12 of next year and you can pre-order it now! 😃⁣

❣Don't forget to join the fun by tagging #createexploreread 📷⁣

I'm off work for the next few weeks, but I think I have enough books to keep me busy for a little while.

Do you do reading challenges?
.
I didn't read anywhere near as much as I should have this year and I'm hoping to change that in 2019. To hold myself accountable to that I decided to do a reading challenge... which turned into three reading challenges *coughcough*
.
But they all look fun and I can do them together so it's all good ;)
.
In 2019 I'll be doing:
-52 Books in 52 Weeks created by @mrsmannegren
There's a list of prompts and they actually look really fun (and manageable/flexible) so I'm excited to dive into them :D
-2019 Monthy Motif Reading Challenge created by @bookgirlkimxoxo
This one had a motif/theme for each month and you're supposed to read at least one book per month with that motif/theme and I just love that concept!
-#bookairy2019 Reading Challenge created by @fabiary
This one is also a "52 books in 52 weeks" but there aren't any prompts and there's an emphasis on actually reviewing books rather than just reading them. So this way I'll actually be committed to sharing what I read with all of you!
.
Also that gorgeous candle is from @gillywickgoods who does an amazing job with all their stuff. You seriously want to check out their shop if you haven't already
I probably won't be reading in a pumpkin patch in 2019 but I can imagine I am with this candle (if I burn it... it's almost too pretty to burn...)

I LOVE to read! Somewhere along the line I developed this really bad habit of buying books...and then acquiring more books...and more books to the point where I have 182 UNREAD audio/e-books/paper books around our house.😬 YIKES. So - this New Years resolutions is two-fold: 1. NO buying new books (unless it’s a literary emergency😇). 2. To read 182 books next year. 😂🤓📚

This week I’ve taken a look at the goals I set for myself for 2018.
.
I’ve gotten several checked off my list, but definitely not all of them.
.
But I’m going for progress not perfection, so that’s totally fine.
.
Still though, I took time to thoughtfully look at my list and see if there was anything on there that I could reasonably complete in these last two weeks of 2018.
.
I decided on two:
1️⃣Get all my 2018 chatbooks organized and printed (anyone else have 5000+ photos on their phone and none printed??🙋🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️)
2️⃣Read more books (3 more to reach 20 books in 2018 - see them in my stories today!) .
Y’all, these are pretty simple and doable, and most importantly they are things that are important to me.
.
I know it’s gonna feel amazing to get these done heading straight into 2019.
.
It’s never too late to tackle a goal. So before you start making goals and choosing a word of the year for 2019, I encourage you to take a look at your goals from 2018 and see if there is anything you could complete in these last two weeks. .
And I’d love to hear from you on what goals you’re going to tackle! DM me or leave a comment below to share, let’s encourage each other! 💕

#50 of 2018 and still time for more. #dearsister is an adorable novel in letters and hand drawn illustrations from an annoyed older brother to a pesky little sister. Life lesson: don’t blink because it will be over before you know it. #amreading #readinggoals #librarylove

Αυτή η εικόνα κάπου στο κέντρο της Αθήνας με έκανε να σκεφτώ ότι μια ολόκληρη ζωή μάλλον δεν φτάνει για να διαβάσω όλα εκείνα τα βιβλία που θέλω 💭🤔📚...έτσι αποφάσισα να «οργανωθώ» λιγάκι και έφτιαξα λίστα ανάγνωσης για τη νεά χρονιά που είναι στο κατώφλι! Τη μοιράζομαι μαζί σας σε ένα νέο ποστ στο μπλογκ 🔜 ΑΥΡΙΟ🙏🏻✨

I've been deciding on some reading goals and challenges for 2019 and one of the things I've been thinking about is re-reading Harry Potter. I have read books 5-7 at least twice each but have always done so in a hurry, trying to absorb the plot as quickly as possible, or, on re-reads, trying to get through them quickly before the next book was published. And I have only read books 1-4 one time each. I have yet to have the pleasure of reading the entire series at a leisurely pace and enjoying how all the details of all 7 books fit together. So this year I'm going to read the series a few chapters at a time, spread over the whole year, and blog about it (maybe) as I go. I made myself this schedule and figured I'd post it here, mainly so I can find it easily and also in case anyone else wants to do the same thing. (We have the UK editions of the books, hence the Philosopher's Stone. The dates are the deadlines by which I plan to read each set of chapters.) #yearofharrypotter #harrypotter #harrypotterseries #readinggoals #readingchallenges #bookstagram #kidsbookstagram #childrensbooks #kidlit #readersofinstagram #igreads #goodreads #bookishgoals #bibliophile #readingproject #2019goals #ReadAtHomeMom
