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
Here we are at the start of another new year. So, the first thing to say is Happy New Year! The next thing to think about is, how my reading year went in 2018 and how it’s going to look in 2019. This time, I actually spent time to think about where I wanted my reading to go in 2019. Do I want to speed through 120 books I can barely remember the plot of in December? Am I taking part in every reading challenge under the sun? Time to find out. . .
I say this every year, but it doesn’t feel like a whole year has past since I put together my reading challenge for 2018. I spent the year in a flurry of books, travelling, reading, and buying books I could barely afford or house. In terms of my reading challenges, 2018 was pretty successful. I bossed a couple of the challenges, while others needed a lot more work. That was something I took into account when I thought about my 2019 reading challenge.
Can you believe another year has ended? I know I say that every time I close off my yearly reading challenge, but this time I really do feel the year just sped by. Of course, there never seems to be enough time when it comes to reading, though. Since the year is over (tomorrow) I’ve taken a look back at my year long reading challenge, and whether I put in a good performance.
