📚Are you on track for your reading goals for 2018?

📚Goals for the year

Usually by June, my reading goal has slipped away from reality like a well intended New Year’s resolution. This year though, not so fast my friend…I am actually on track! I owe it in part to all the book bloggers I follow.

I could never compete with some of your impressive reading goals but I’m still happy with my own. I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been reading this year. My goal for 2018 was a book a week(totally doable), and as of the second week in June I am actually a few weeks ahead of my goal! Yay!🤩

My life with the preschool, and our own boys, camping all the time, is so busy that what I really enjoy is a light read, even predictable at times. I know that may seem boring to some of you, but some YA books are fun and comforting to read when your own life is so hectic. They are great for picking up and jumping right in for a few pages here or there.

📚Here are the 26/52 books I’ve read so far this year…

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

  1. Congrats on getting ahead of your goal! I have been setting my goal at 15 for a few years now I bumped it up to 40 after I hit 15 thinking that would take me a while. Surprisingly I am at 52 books so far. I know you didn’t ask for recommendations but if you like lighter books you should try Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anste. I read that this year and loved it so much I bought her other two books. I am going to host a Gail Carriger read along if you are interested. We will be starting with her YA books first (they are the first in her timeline) they are paranormal/steampunk. They are not too intense. Sorry for rambling on so much. Good Luck on your reading goal for the rest of the year!

  2. I am pretty on track- I didn’t read much last year…. so I have already completely destroyed last years short numbers- I am in the middle of reading book number ’38’ for the year- I am about to go on vacation so that number will probably skyrocket! LOL I see you have Discovery of Witches on your list! I love that trilogy

  3. This is great! I have not made a reading goal in years for myself. I may have to try it out. I just got back into reading this year (as in I don’t crash immediately when I go to bed because I’m so exhausted from all the night wakings). I love that you listed all of the books too, I may check out a couple of these.

  4. I set my goals low this year so they wouldn’t drive me crazy and I’m so far ahead I’ve upped them a couple of times! (Wish I had that kind of dedication in other areas.) Good luck with your reading 🙂

    • I just sent a friend request. I wasn’t sure if I send a friend request or just follow. Lol I’ve never connected with anyone on there until today. But I’m excited to use Goodreads more! You must read SUPER fast! I’m so impressed! 😮

      • I accepted! Goodreads is so fun! Your TBR will grow even more than it already has! I am a fast reader, but what’s funny is the books I really, really love, I read slower. I savor them! But I always have a few going at once to mix it up. 😊

      • I have neglected all the lists on goodreads accept my read and currently reading. I need to clean it up a bit. It’s messy! I wasn’t expecting company! 🤣
