My journey in books for the year 2019


Probably the first and the last time I would read so many…

  1. Wow, what an amazing reading year! I had my best reading year with 375 books read, I’m not sure I’ll ever manage to read that many in twelve months again but it has been wonderful. Hope 2020 brings lots more amazing books your way! 🙂

  2. I hope you have less time to read next year and more time enjoying the pleasures you seek… and no… I did not mean that in any kind of dirty way. Behave yourself 😜🤣❤️
    Still, 700 is amazing.

    1. Hehehe behave and me? Do you even know whom you are talking to? 😂😂😂I can behave with everyone except YOU. With you, it would be pure wicked misbehavior

  3. Since my health hinders me from doing much, I often read late the night, usally a book a day. Lately it 1/12 a day. Sorry your life was so bad last year Wishing you a better year. Betty Louise ☕🍵🎉👵🌾

  4. These numbers make me feel like a slacker ☺️ but I could tell by all the reviews that you do that your total number of books would be very very big! Wishing you a wonderful 2020!

  5. Holy Hell! And each not only read but beautifully reviewed. I bow in reverence to the mistress of words. XOXO

    1. Aww omg omg omg…. Shut the door!!
      You are my inspiration, you are the one who makes me happy with one comment, one word. Your vocabulary makes me green too..
      This is too much of an honor for Little old me… More emphasis on old… 😂 😂 😂
      Thank you once again for being in my life ❤️😘

  6. Congratulations! WOW. I have to say I’m a little jealous 😂 . I had my worst year in quantity but a good year in quality as I read mostly ONLY my favorite authors.

  7. It was quite an impressive reading and reviewing year for you, but since you hope to change things up a little bit, I wish you well with those changes this year. “To everything there is a season…” You did what you needed to in order to survive emotionally this last year. May 2020 offer new challenges and great promise, Shalini!

    1. Aww… You said it perfectly.
      There is a season and a reason for that. I am planning to have a well balanced new year.
      I wish you loads of happiness and love in the forthcoming year. ❤️😘

  8. Well, I am seriously impressed with the massive amount of reading you’ve done this year. (The reason why tears at my heart, though) My wish for you is that 2020 is a much happier year for you, and that your reading time will be spent with more of your own books.

    1. I agree… I used books as a way to stop going into a depression.
      I think this would be the only year. I hope to be careful with my heart…

  9. As usual, you have blown me away, Shalini! 700 is truly an outstanding number. I don’t know how you do it. Super woman!!! I hope you have a truly wonderful new year and many great reads in 2020!

  10. Holy freak WOW!!!! 700 books is amazing you’re definitely a reading machine. Congratulations!! I had my best reading year this year reading 120 books which is actually only one more book than read last year.

    1. I read to forget my heartbreak and didn’t want to cry about a lot of things. So I read and read and read and did so many blog tours that my brain cells fired

  11. Holy moly! How is that even possible? Do you ever sleep? Do you have a secret twin??? Congrats on such an amazing reading year. Wishing you a great 2020!

    1. I don’t know… I took up 3 to 4 Tours per day and fried my brain from September to mid December 🙈 I needed to forget some things so I read and never gave my brain time to feel other stuff

      1. Well, I do understand the need to bury yourself (myself) in a book when there are things I’d rather not think about. 🙂 I hope all is well and that you have a great 2020!

  12. 700 books! Just thinking of the number makes me dizzy. And every one of them read and sincerely reviewed. That’s you!
    May this New Year bring you much happiness. You deserve it.

    1. Hahaha some of them reviewed in 3 lines… 😂 😂 And some were not worth the review. 🙈🙈
      Thank you Sheela
      How are you? Happy new year ❤️ 😘

  13. Wow, Shalini, I did a double-take at the number of books you read ~ wowowowow! If you had to pick a fave, which one would it be from your 2019 read list?

  14. Sorry about the break up. If it had happened to me though, I would have found solace in books too. I myself read about 20 books. And that was a case of fitting them into every spare moment.
