For anyone out there with a To Be Read list that seems like it will never end, this challenge is for you! This is all about making your own personal list of books that you want to commit to reading in 2019.
10? 20? 30? more? It’s up to you
Books can be published in any year, be from any genre, and from any category: adult, YA, MG, Graphics, NF, etc. . All that matters is that they are books you want to be sure not to forget as that TBR list continues to grow! These aren’t the only titles you will read over the year, but a list to help guide your reading. A list to lure you back to a reading path you have set for yourself. Many, many new books will tempt you! Go ahead and read them but having a list like this ensures you will not forget some titles you were determined to read. That’s the intention and spirit of this challenge.
It would be wonderful to have you join the community!
If you would like to create and share a list on your blog, contact me on twitter (@CarrieGelson) or leave a link in the comments and I will add your list to the #MustReadin2019 lists below. Everyone is welcome! I will update regularly so if you are just seeing this now – go make a list! We’ll be waiting for you.
Three updates seemed to work best so we will continue this again. If you also leave me your twitter handle (if you are on twitter) I will send you a reminder. For those not on twitter, please mark these dates in your calendar. Update posts can be shared on or around these dates – just leave your link in the comment section of my post and share it on twitter using #MustReadin2019
Spring update: Thursday April 4th, 2019
Fall update: Thursday September 5th, 2019
Year end update: Thursday December 26th, 2019
Update posts are purely optional!
They can take whatever format you wish: highlighting your favourites, reasons for not reading, simply a list of what you have read, etc. You can search for #mustread2018 on this blog for update examples.
Ready for some inspiration?

So excited you are back Leigh Anne!
Carrie…I can’t count. I only have 15 titles, not 16! Good grief!
I read Front Desk and Blended from your list. Both were very good. I’m really interested in the 57 Bus and several others that are on your list.
I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s lists. Here is the link to mine: http://www.literacyonthemind.com/2019/01/books-im-looking-forward-to-reading-in.html Thanks, Carrie!
These lists are dangerous! So happy you are joining us again!
Nice list Lisa. A manageable size like mine. Although I went from 12 books to now 16 this year. I feel like I can manage 4 more books this year.
I’ve made a more doable list this year, only read half last year. Thanks for doing this again, Carrie. Happy New Year! https://www.teacherdance.org/2019/01/mustreadin2019.html
Thanks for being around since the beginning Linda!

Hi Everyone. I love setting these reading goals at the start of a brand new year. Thank you again Carrie for hosting #MustReadin2019. Here is my post with my reading selections. Last year I had 12 and this year I bumped it up to 16: https://cecelibrarian.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/mustreadin2019-my-reading-challenge/
So excited that you are joining us again! Off to check out your list!
Hi Everyone! I did a quick post to get us started. Happy 2019!
Hello Kendra! So happy you are here!
Thank you for sharing your list and for organizing everyone else’s. I am sharing my list for 2019. Happy New Year!
Happy new Year to you too! Happy to have you back!
Here is my list. I went with a similar list to last year’s. https://wrigglingbookworms.wordpress.com/2019/01/02/must-read-in-2019/
Can’t wait (although it will be dangerous I am sure!) to go read it. My Goodreads TBR is exploding today
Happy New Year! Here is my link https://readingtl.blogspot.com/2019/01/mustreadin2019.html
I always love checking out your lists Crystal! Thanks for being here year after year!
I sure wish I had read your favourites before completing my must read list Carrie!

We made our list! Sorry to be so late, but we took a couple of weeks off. So excited for YEAR FIVE! 🙂
I’m so excited you are here!
Here’s my long overdue post and commitment to twelve books (5 from last year’s list). I intentionally stayed away from reading everyone’s post until I finished mine. And now, I look forward to reading your lists and growing mine!
It is hard to not make a overwhelming list when we look at all of the others!
