We have officially made it to the middle of the year. I wanted to take a minute to check in on my goals. June was a slow month, but I think I can keep myself on track to finish out the year.
Number of Books Read
I have read 42 books in the last six months. I have 33 more books to read to complete my goal of 75. This time last year I had only read 30 books. I am definitely proud of increasing my numbers. My goal last year was to read 50 books. I met that goal pretty early on. I wanted to push myself a little this year.
Number of Series Completed and Favorite
So I don’t normally combine this category, but since I’ve only completed one series this one wins by default. I loved the Winternight Trilogy. It will be hard to find a series that I love more than this one. I do want to complete a few more this year. My reading has been all over the place though. It might be a hard goal to reach.
My Favorite of the Year (so far)
This one was a hard choice. It was actually harder than I expected. When I read My Dark Vanessa I didn’t think I would read anything that even compared. But I did, so I decided to list my top three. At the end of the year I will probably do a top five, but right now I only have three that stand out in my mind.
My Least Favorite (so far)
Choosing a favorite was hard. Choosing a least favorite was not. I only gave The Boy from the Woods a 1/5. I haven’t written a review yet because it was the last book I read in June. I hate giving bad reviews, but I was so completely disappointed by this.
I’m proud of the progress I have made. This year has been weird. Focusing on my reading goals has helped keep me motivated. I hope you’ve had a good six months, despite the circumstances. Here’s to hoping tha the next six are even better.
