A year complete in under 6 months!

Well, I officially finished my Goodreads goal for the year of 52 books!

I’d been expecting this, just based on the fact that I was furloughed from my job and most days were spent reading for several hours. It was an easy guess that I’d blow through them pretty quickly. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Like I’ve said before, I don’t plan on changing my goal to be a higher number, but instead am working on creating other reading-based goals for myself. Here are a few of my new monthly goals:

  • reading a recent or upcoming Indie or self-published book, to help authors who need it
  • read an ARC from NetGalley or Edelweiss (I’m not behind, but I like to keep up with upcoming releases)
  • read a book from my decade-plus-long TBR that I’ve been excited about forever and just never got around to

I’m also pushing myself to read books that are outside my usual picks. Genres I don’t read much of (like thrillers and mysteries), or classics I’ve never read (like The Iliad), or books that are just really freakin’ long (I’m finally going to read Kingdom of Ash and finish the Throne of glass series. This beast is 984 pages long!!!).

If you’ve got any favorites that are in one of those categories or that you might otherwise want to challenge me to read, let me know in the comments so I can check it out!

  1. Nice one! Congratulations on reaching your goal ๐Ÿ™‚ It sounds like you’re having a pretty great reading year so far and I like the sound of your reading goals for the rest of the year! I still need to read KoA too but I didn’t realise it was THAT long… Good luck! I hope you enjoy it (most people I’ve heard from have)! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thanks!! Yeah… I’d been putting it off because I knew it would take more time and there were so many other shorter books I just kept reading first xD But I’m really ready for it!
