If you missed my 2015 Bookish Goals post at the beginning of the year – and the beginning of this blog! – you can check it out here. I thought I would do progress reports each quarter, in order to re-evaluate my goals, if necessary, and see how I’m doing – and to solidify my extreme nerdiness.
1. Read 60 books – on track!
This would be an average of 5 books per month, so to minimally be meeting my goal, I should have read 15 books by now. I’m killing it with this one, and so far have read 28 books this year!
2. 15 Books to Read in 2015 – meh, but okay with it.
This is a self-made list of books I want to read this year. You can see the full list, and track my status anytime here. So far this year, I have read um, 1 of the 15 books, which is actually okay. The first three months of the year were dominated by Tournament of Books reading, and now that’s wrapped up reading-wise, so I can finally get to some of these!
3. Finish previously started series – FAIL!
Utter fail so far, but whatevs. I’m sure I’ll finish the last Vampire Academy book soon, and hopefully Clockwork Princess as well. There are so many series I want to get to, but have anxiety about starting new ones with out completing at least some of those previously started. It’ll happen.
4. 3 NEW series to read this year – success in 1 of 3!
I’ve already read the first book of the Mistborn series, thanks to #YearOfCosmere, and plan to get to the second (I’m behind!) and third next month. The other two series I haven’t started yet, and I’m cool with that.
5. Read at least 5 classics – FAIL!
Yeah, I’m okay with my failure at this point. It will happen… or it won’t. However, if you have any enjoyable classics recommendations, I’d love to hear them!
6. Track my reading stats – SUCCESS!
Still not sure what I’m going to do with this information in my geeky spreadsheet, but I’m sure it will become clear as the year progresses.
7. Book Riot 2015 Read Harder Challenge – SUCCESS!
Based on the average of 2 challenges per month, I should have completed 6 challenges at this point, and I’m done with 9 of the 24, so I’m ahead. This is another one where you can track my progress at your leisure here, as I will be checking them off as I’ve done them. I’m not convinced I’ll fully complete the challenge, but I’m okay with that too!
Overall, I’m pleased with my progress, and am going to call this a success at this point. So far, I want to continue with all of my goals, and still feel completely committed. I will check in again at the half way point near the end of June!
How are you doing with your reading goals?
