I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! As we are coming up to the New Year I wanted to do a post on the books I read in 2018. This year I had set my Goodreads Goal at 50… and well I read 19. But even though I am considerably out on achieving that goal, I am taking this as a major win.
You know from my previous posts that throughout this year I was juggling my masters degree and two jobs, so 19 books to me is an achievement. After finishing up my degree, I fell out of love with reading for a few months and I am only just picking up a book again. In 2017 I also had the same goal as this year; 50 books and sadly I hit 45. Much closer than this year though….
Lets take a look at the books I have read this year…
The books I have read this year have been amazing, so many wonderful reads from Dear Martin, Lord of Shadows to The Hundredth Queen. I have reviewed a large number of these books on my blog previously if any of you are interested in finding out more about a particular one.
Looking through this list, I have to say I am happy because a bunch of these books have been on my TBR pile for so long and I have successfully been ticking off books I have owned for ages and not picked up. Also I have begun reading more diverse reads with main characters who are Indian, Asian-American or African -American. It is nice to see how my reading is developing.
In 2019 I am going to set my challenge once again at 50. Third times a charm right? I am determined to smash that goal and fall in love with reading once again. I also have a giant TBR pile staring at me, making me feel guilty so I have to challenge myself to knock through that pile!
What is your Reading Goal for 2019?
Did you receive any books for Christmas? Be sure to tell them me in the comments!
