Helloooooooo, my friends!
I feel good and settled at my University and am loving it! Even though we are thirteen days into the new year, and I have written two essays today, I wanted to pat myself on the back for my 2018 reading challenge.
As my longtime readers know, I keep up with my books on Goodreads. My goal for 2018 was 40 books. It seemed like a doable and ambitious number for me all at once. I am sure other readers can relate that there seems to be less and less time to read. WELL, I kicked that excuse in the butt last year! Not only did I reach my goal of 40 books, but I surpassed it by reading 56 books!
My top three were: Poser: My Life in Twenty Three Yoga Poses – Claire Dederer
The Winternight Trilogy – Katherine Arden
Outlander – Diana Gabaldon
My bottom three were: Mary Poppins – P. L. Travers
I Remember Nothing – Nora Ephron
Modern Romance – Aziz Ansari
There you go! My goal for 2019 is 20 books… Yeah, I halved my last goal. I tried to cut myself some slack since I am expecting to face some big changes this year! While the challenge was fun to race and try to beat, I want this year to be more relaxed. Plus, I am already spending all of my reading time doing homework and reading textbooks.
I hope to see your new goals on Goodreads!
Thanks for reading.
