Earlier this year I did a goal post for 2019, and this is my review of those reading goals for 2019.
I already posted my blog for 2020 reading goals which is much the same as these with a few new ones.
In short, these were my goals:
READING GOALS 2019:
GoodReads: 85 books
The Ultimate Home Made Reading Challenge
Buy max 2 books a month (24 books for the year)
Request max 2 ARCs a month (24 books a year)
Read 85 Books:
Smashed it! This was my GoodReads challenge this year and I reached 105 books in total. I originally wanted to do 100 books but I hade a wild though:
“I also want to do more writing this year.”– me, last year…
Well that didn’t happen…. and I should have had 100 books instead.
The Ultimate Home Made Reading Challenge:
I managed most of them but there is a handful of books and prompts I didn’t get to. Those will all be transfered on to next year as I’m still interested in them.
The prompts I didn’t get to includes:
- A best seller from the year I graduated high school / secondary school (book selected but not read)
- A book about a Merriam-Webster word from the year I was born ( but I did select a word and potentially a book)
- A book from the top 10 highest rated books on the GoodReads TBR (book selected but not read)
- A book tied to my ancestry (book selected but not read)
- A book set in Antarctica
- Finish a series with more than 3 books in it (book selected but not read)
- A book featuring an a-romantic character
- A book featuring an eating disorder (book selected but not read)
Fail! – but I did pretty good.
Buy max 2 books a month (24 books per year):
By going back over all my wrap-up posts for 2019 I have counted 17 purchases. Whether this is true or not I don’t know but it looks right.
Request max 2 ARC’s a month (24 books per year):
Again based on the wrap-ups I counted 22 ARC requests which is 2 less than the max. Well done me! 😂
That’s it for my challenges. I completed 3 out of 4 which I think is pretty good 😁
How did you do in 2019? Did you have any challenges or did you just went with the flow? Let me know!
