Whoever said you feel the years pass by quicker when you’re older was absolutely bang on. It’s already April (nearly May, more like) of 2018 and I really do feel like we rang in the New Year about a week ago. Time flies when you’re having fun reading, huh?
I really went to town on my reading in early 2017, and I did try to keep up with my work from then. Though, with 28 books read from January to March, that was probably going to be a feat of unreachable proportions. Right?
The years are definitely passing a lot faster these days because I swear I wrote last year’s reading challenge just yesterday. I have just closed off that challenge from 2017, and let’s be real it did have a little bit of room for improvement. Thankfully, there’s a whole new year stretching out in front of me with some brand new prompts to tick off.
This year, I’m going to do my very best to make sure I don’t fall behind. I’ll be keeping track of the challenges in my reading journal, so I can be certain I have checked a prompt off.
With so many books out there that I really want to read, and a whole 365 days in which to read them, I am really hoping that this year, I’ll be finishing up with a majority of books ticked off from the two prompt challenges, and again have surpassed my Goodreads challenge. Do we be realistic, or head out with dreams of glory? Time to find out what’s in store.
Don’t you always feel like the year goes way too quickly these days? It’s like you blink in January and suddenly it’s October, the schools are back, and shops are going to start playing Christmas music any day soon. Don’t fret, we’ve got a season of Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas to get us through to Hallowe’en first.
Now is the ideal time to check in on my reading challenge from this year. As I showed last time, I pretty much knocked my Goodreads challenge out of the park, so it wasn’t really a big concern for me as the year drew to a close. But there are still two other big challenges to keep an eye on.
There’s always a sense of accomplishment when I post a challenge update, but today I’ve really got something to be proud of.
In my previous challenge update I had bitten off quite a large chunk of each of my categories. Time to see where I lie with them now.
The year is a quarter of the way through (I know, what!) so it’s time for a little check in on how my reading challenges are faring. Since I set them in January I’ve had quite a lot of downtime to get my read on, so has that made any impression on my actual reading?
