Hello people! I hope you all are safe and happy, and that your week is going well! Today I would take a look at my reading goals for the year and see how it is going. Since we have reached the midway point it seems a good idea to see how am doing and see what I can do to do better before is too late. And yes, this sounds pretty ominous, I know!!!!!
- Read at least 3 non fantasy books each months (or 36 for the end of the year)
So far I have read 20 non fantasy books (and I am not counting the sci-fi here, because there is a special place for those, too), so I would say that I am on track here!
- Read at least 10 sci-fi books during the year (without counting the one for Sci-Fi Month).
I reached this goal back in April, when I first published a post like this one. But I am happy to say that I have kept reading sci-fi all the same! At the moment I have read 12 sic-fi books. Sure, I could have read some more, but… I am happy with it!
- Read at least 12 non fiction books.
I am not doing so good here, but not too bad either. I have read 6 books out of 12. So I am on track. And it was a surprise, because I seriously thought that I was behind with this one!
- Bringing up my feedback ratio on NetGalley.
Ahem… *coff-coff* I have no self-control, so it is not really so good. The good part is that I have not done it worse, it is always the same. The bad part is that this is not good enough! But I am working on it!!!!!
- Read at least 2 ARCs each month.
I have read 26 books, so I am done with this one too. But this does not mean that I would stop. Not at all!
- Read at least 10 books from the Blame to the Community Posts.
So far I have read 7 books. So not bad, but I hope to read a lot more in the next months!
- Finish (or reach the last published volume) 8 series.
I think that my plans for the Summer would involve a lot of series, because I am not doing too bad with this one, but I am not doing as well as I was hoping. I have finished 2 series and I have reached the last volume published for 4 series, so it is not bad but I was hoping for something more. Also, I have not continued as much series as I was hoping, so… I know what I would be doing this Summer!
All things considered, I am well on track! I have not done so well with my TBRs. I have published two of them, one for the Spring, here, and one for the Bingo, here. With the Spring one I was really ambitious and even if in May I was busy with the moving, and I know that it was coming, I didn’t count it in my plans when I wrote down the TBR. Stupid of me, really! But all things considered, it was not too bad. I have read 13 books out of 28 and I am reading the 14th. So even if we are now in Summer, I would count it anyway, and so I have read half of them. Not bad, especially because I have managed to read some chunky books so… this counts for something, right?
And for the Bingo’s one I have read 6 books out of 25, but I have a lot of time to finish this one, so that’s okay!
Anyway, some of the books that I have read for my Spring TBR were pretty amazing, so I was really really lucky!
So, what about you? Have you set some reading goals this year? And how are you doing with them?? Let me know!
