52 Books in 52 Weeks

I want to read fifty two books in fifty two weeks. That means I have to read one book each week. I almost completed this goal last year! I read like 48 or something. This year, I’m going to do it! Yes, graphic novels count!

I would love to read all of the best books from 2019, but I think it’s more realistic to limit myself to my respective genre. I read a few of these in 2019, so I don’t need to read all of them, thank goodness!

Summer of Harry Potter

I’m going to buddy read the series with my boyfriend during the summer, in honor of Harry’s birthday of course. We’re also going to be watching the movies and possibly doing themed things that go with each book. We’ll see!

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

I desperately want to re-read these this year. I’m going to carve out a month for that somewhere.

Author Grinds

I don’t think it’s an official term, but I love me some author grinds. An author grind, in my world, is when you read all of the books that an author has to offer. In 2019, I did a Rainbow Rowell author grind.

I would really like to do a Jenn Bennett author grind this year, if I like the first two that I’m go read by her. She has several young adult romance books out, and I’m feeling like I need a break from the fantasy.

I’ve been wanting to do a Maggie Stiefvater grind for a long time, too. Although, I don’t think I’m going to get to her this year. There are so many books and so little time!
