For the month of December, I am joining Girlxoxo and Traveling with T for their #AMonthofFaves blog event. To learn more and to see the list of topics, read their announcement post–#AMonthofFaves 2019 [Blog Event] Announcement.
Today’s prompt is “Challenges and Goals”:
Reading challenges, personal goals, resolutions – how did you do? Which was your favorite book read (and / or least favorite) for each challenge – or from all of them. Did you make New Years Resolutions? Did you get to all of them? Are you making any for next year … next month … next season?
I did not set any real goals for myself this year. I always join the Goodreads Reading Challenge, but I don’t think I’m going to meet my goal for 2019. I originally challenged myself to read 100 books–I usually read 100 books or more in a year–but this past year’s school work was more work than usual, so I knocked my challenge goal down to 75 books a number of months ago. And I don’t think I’m going to make it to 75 books, either. Aside from that, I didn’t join any challenges or make any personal reading goals for 2019.
I’ve already posted about the challenges I’m “joining” for 2020, and you can see that post here — 2020 Reading Challenges: Wingin’ It!
I’ve also posted about Vintage Science Fiction Month, which happens in January 2020.
I’m going to join the 2020 Goodreads Reading Challenge, as usual, and challenge myself to read 100 books…we’ll see how that works out. I will have the summer off between receiving my Bachelor’s degree and starting my Master’s degree, so I should be able to reach 100 books in 2020.
What about you? Do you challenge yourself when it comes to reading? Are you officially joining any reading challenges in 2020? Let me know in the comments!
