Today I thought I give a little update my reading challenges and overall stats for the first quarter of the year. Can you believe it is April already!!
Since we are already through the first quarter of the year, I thought I’d share with you my reading stats so far. Since my A Year in Review posts are one of my favourite posts to do I thought I would do it on a somewhat regular basis.
I have brought a lot of books over the last two years and it’s getting a bit crazy how little I’ve actually read of them. So this year I’ve decided to try and cut down my TBR by reading my own books. I will be taking part in Bookoploy and using it as a way to save and cut down my TBR.
This year like the last three years, I’m taking part in the Goodreads reading challenge and the Around the Year in 52 Books challenge. I have completed by Goodreads challenge every year but not my Around the Year challenge. So this year I am hoping that I can complete both.
I would really love to have regular update and content being published here on my blog. Last year it was mostly just wrap ups, T5Ws and reviews. I want to give myself the time I create some new content and also bringing you a more consistent posting schedule.
I read 94 books last year, but only wrote about 15 reviews. I love writing them so this year I would like to get into the habit of writing more. I don’t think I’ll review everyone just because I think some books can be easily reviewed in a wrap up. I would love to write at least 4 reviews a month.
Looking over my reading stats from last year, I read mostly fantasy and historical fiction—which are my favourite genres. However, this year I would like to diversify my reading by picking my genres I never reach for—contemporary, crime and sci fi— while also explore genres I like—such as non fiction, literary fiction, poetry and short stories.
That’s all for me. Comment down below and let me what your reading goals for 2018 are.
I did post my TBR on Instagram before the challenge started but I thought I’d post it here too.
#TheReadingQuest is an awesome four week reading challenge based on video games. The challenge runs from Sunday 13 August to Sunday 10 August. The challenge runs like a bingo board with each title representing a stage (reading prompt) you must complete. The difference is that you’re starting point on the grid depends on the character class you chose.
Hi all! I’m here today to share with you my, slightly ambitious, reading goals for 2016.
I have decided to part take in the Goodreads Reading Challenge but setting my goal at 50 books. I decided to set my goal low so not to make me anxious about my reading next year. Also it’s the first year I will be doing this challenge and I thought this would be a good starting point.
On top on this, I have decided to do not one but two reading challenge! The second challenge I will doing is another Goodreads challenge called, Around the Year in 52 Books. As the title suggests, the goal is to read 1 book for every week of the year. The Goodreads group has set a different challenge for each week – for example, a book with blue on the cover.
Listed below are the books I have hoping to get to next year! It will be fun to check in at the end of the year to see how well I stuck to my plan.
