Hello again! I thought I’d better discuss my 2018 Reading goals while we’re still in February before I blink and it’s suddenly November and I have no idea where I am or what I’ve done with my life all year.
I am not the best at sticking to a TBR every month (but that is a post for another time). The way that I get around this is by participating in challenges and by sticking to my yearly Goodreads goal.
Last year I didn’t have a specific TBR list that I confined myself to, instead I just set my goodreads goal to 30 books which would have been atleast two books a month. I had wanted to set it higher but with a new baby AND going back to work, I was worried about stressing myself out so I set my initial goal to 30. One 18 book series later and I was only in April so I upped my goal to 50. Long story short I ended up reading 92 books last year.
- I have set my Goodreads goal to 75
I am participating in the following challenges:
I must include:
- 5-10 NonFiction
- More contemporary fiction
Books I want to get to this year:
- Don Quixote
- The King’s Pearl
- The Luminaries
- Moby Dick
- The Hercule Poirot books left in Project Poirot
For my unable-to-contain-myself-to-a-TBR list self, I think this is very doable and not too strict so as to make it a chore. My goal is simply to expand beyond my usual genres and to tackle books that may have intimidated me in the past.
I’d love to see what you think of this and hear what everyone else’s goals are. Thanks for stopping by!
