Every year I set myself some reading goals to see me through the next year. With the success of last year behind me, there’s a lot to build on for 2021. Who knows how much time we’ll be spending indoors to be able to read, anyway?
With a brand new 365 day stretch ahead, it’s time to think about what’s to come for my reading goals. As per usual, I’ll be taking part in two reading challenges – the Goodreads Reading Challenge and the Popsugar Reading Challenge. Again, I’ll be marking off everything I’ve read towards the Popsugar challenge on this post.
My reading challenges are the things that keep a little bit of control in my reading. While I love being able to read anything I like, having some prompts in the back of my mind is something nice to work towards.
So, time to check how the first three months of the year have been. I’ve only got two reading challenges this year again, rather than three, so hopefully there’s been some success somewhere?
This is the fifth year I’ve regaled you all with my reading challenge successes (or failures), and I’m really excited for this one. I really love looking back over the year and seeing how many of the prompts I’ve crossed off. I’m then wrecking my head in the later months trying to find a book to clear up the ones I’ve yet to tick.
I’ve once again decided to forego the Modern Mrs Darcy reading challenge, though I have looked at the prompts and they seem really interesting. For 2020, however, all my energy will be on the PopSugar reading challenge.
It’s the one challenge I look forward to every year, and it’s been a staple of my book blogging since I revived it in 2016. I really like this challenge as there are basic prompts, with 40 to complete, but there’s also an extra 10 for if you want to let your inner Matilda Wormwood shine.
It’s the final week of the year, and my reading for this year is officially over. I’ve had quite the year, and not just in terms of reading. As I had a lot of down time in the early year, it’s only natural that should be reflected in my reading, right?
I wasn’t so sure my reading this year would go well. I’d hit two pretty severe reading slumps throughout the year, which always happens when I’m on holidays. As I’d had a couple of holidays this year, I didn’t really expect the numbers to clock up.
Every three months, I like to check in on the progress of my reading challenge throughout the year. I sliced a little off my reading challenge this year, both in terms of the prompts I’ll be filling in and how many Goodreads books I want to tick off. So, now the first three months of 2019 are behind us, how did my reading fare? Does it look like I’m on course to boss this challenge again? Continue reading →
