Hey Guys! So one of my first posts was about my yearly reading goals. my goals were very basic and generic however, upon reflection I realised that a couple of these goals have not been working for me. I got the idea to do this post from all the Mid-Year freakout tag posts and videos I was seeing and decided to reflect on what I had been reading.
Originally my Goodreads goal was 12 books since that meant I only had to read 1 book a month and it wasn’t too much pressure. I have since changed my goal to 24 books because I still wanted a small goal but one that was still a little more challenging. I have currently read 19 out of the 24 books for my goal. I am completely confident with this goal and my ability to complete it.
My goal regarding readathons has definitely changed. I have mentioned my plan regarding readathons a few times in recent posts. I initially wanted to participate in at least 1 readathon a month. I failed this goal early on since I only participated in readathons in January, February and April. I think that participating in readathons causes me to get into reading slumps. I think another reason for this is because I tend to participate in more than 1 readathon a month. I have since decided to no longer participate in readathons unless I really want to.
Specific Book Goals
One of my goals was to read the whole Harry Potter series and Fantastic Beasts by J.K. Rowling as well as the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I have not read any further in the Throne of Glass series and I don’t think I will finish the series before the year ends. I am going to continue to try reading it. I have however, finished the 2 Fantastic Beast screenplays that have been released. Currently, I have only reread the first 3 Harry Potter books but do definitely plan to finish it before the end of the year.
