What I’m reading in Q3

Last week I shared that I was working on my quarterly goals. I rock at daily to-do lists. However longer term goal planning has always been a struggle for me. This year instead of trying to set yearly goals, I’ve been working on quarterly goals. It isn’t perfect, but it’s actually helping me make some progress!

One area I set a goal in is reading. Reading is such an important part of my life and I read a lot. The problem is I’m not very intentional with what I read. My goal in over the next three months (Q3) is to read thirteen books. And for fun, I mapped out what I’m hoping to read. Want to know what the plan is?

Books for upcoming Facebook Parties

I love hosting Facebook Launch Parties for authors. I read the book for each party I host so that I can customize the party around the book’s main themes. I have three Facebook Party books over the next three months that I’ll be reading for. If more authors ask for parties, these books always take priority for me.

Penne Murder by Catherine Bruns

Molded 4 Murder by JC Eaton

Remembering the Dead by Elizabeth J. Duncan

Non cozy mysteries

I always have such good intentions of reading books from other genres but I often put them on the back burner in favor of more cozies. I’m hoping to read one non-cozy a month. True confession: if there is a part of the goal I’m most worried about achieving, it is this part right here.

I’m rounding out my reading with some books I’ve just really wanted to read for various reasons.

Protocol by Kathleen Valenti

Poirot Loses a Client by Agatha Christie

And there you have it!

My reading goals for Q3 of 2019. I’ll try to keep you posted at the top of each month on how I’m doing. Nothing like a little accountability, right?

Do you set goals for yourself? How about reading goals? I’d love to hear about your goals in the comments.

I am reading the newest Muffin mystery, Muffin to Fear. My goal is to make a dent in the Diane Mott Davidson series, Goldy Culinary Mysteries. I have read about five and I want to read at least five more in the next three months. I also want to start the next Berensen Melanie Travis Mystery on my list. I have plenty to read on my To Read List.

Interesting. Only two of your books are books that are on my radar for the next quarter. There is one more that might jump on depending on my free reading time.
