So its halfway through the year and I thought it would be a great time to do a tag and take a look at how far I have gotten with my personal reading challenge!
Current Goal Total
- Read 5 Witchy Books – The Modern Guide to Witchcraft
- Read 5 Self-Help (can include business, health and blogging) –
- Read 2 Travel Books –
- Read 2 Mystery books –
- Read 2 Popular Fiction Books –
- Read 2 General Fiction from a booksellers recommendation list – All that she can see
- Read 2 Classics –
- 20 Books in the genre that I usually like to read – See right here
There are quite a few things to consider. 1) I have been in a Goodreads reading challenge for the last two months, which in turn meant that I read faster than I normally would. 2) I stuck to what I knew and only branched out a little 3) I am now on a book fasting, so I am hacking into my TBR which is a variety of odd books.
What Has Surprised Me?
I felt like I had read more general fiction and popular fiction books. But looking back on my Goodreads shelf, what I thought was general was actually paranormal or fantasy. Since I wasn’t reading PNR it felt like I had taken a big step, but the joke was on me. Taking out the romance doesn’t mean you are reading a completely different genre (DAMN)
What Has Frustrated Me?
I really thought I was getting far, yes I am 4 books ahead of my reading schedule but they are not the right type of books! Ugggh, my biggest fear could possibly come true…that the last 6 months will be me reading lots of different genres (I can get overwhelmed by too many changes!)
What Do I Have Planned Next?
That is the question isn’t? To avoid feeling like reading becomes a chore, I am going to do some heavy research. I will look for classics that are ridiculously long, single out another witchy book (I have an eye on a few). I am a little stumped on the Mystery and Travel sections I have, I would love to hear some recommendations!
