Reading Goals 2020! | Mid-year check-in

2020Goals (2).png

It’s officially the time of year where does their mid-year posts: check-ins, best/work books so far, etc, and I’m rather pumped for it. I love these kinds of posts, I get so many good recommendations! (PS so if you post these kinds of these and you don’t see me in there in your posts already, please link them and I’ll go lookie)

So, January 2nd of this year, I posted a bunch Reading Goals. This is my progress on them so far:

  • Read 50 books

I’ve actually increased this to 100 books, since I hit it really fast. I’ve been on a manga kick and that really helped. Currently I’m at 132 books read (the majority manga) so I can say both this goal and the updated one are complete.

  • Maintain a consistent posting schedule

At the time of posting, my schedule was Saturday-Sunday-Wednesday. Right now it’s Saturday-Sunday-Tuesday, and I keep it up most of the time. I tend to miss one or two posts per month, but overall I think I’m doing okay, mostly consistent. So considering I still have six months to crash and burn, I’ll say this one is in progress.

  • Keep track of reading statistics

So… I’ve noticed a trend. My goal was to keep track of statistics as I read the books, but I tend to just binge-add fifty or sixty books at a time. So right now, it’s been a while since I’ve updated my stats. But I will do so by the time I post about them. So this also gets a solid in progress.

  • Reduce physical TBR to 200

This one took a bit of an interesting turn: When I made this goal, I had 252 books on my physical TBR. That included fiction and nonfiction. The problem is, I read nonfiction…. sometimes. So I decided to split my nonfiction books to its own TBR. So remaining, I have 236 unread fiction books. Nonfiction honestly I’m not too worried about, because I own so little of it and I read it so seldom. So from this point I’m going to focus on getting my unread fiction down to under 200 books. Cheating? Yes. Pbtbtbt. In progress


And that’s it! So far I haven’t horrendously failed any so I’m doing pretty well I think. Lemme know how you’re doing! And like I said if you post mid-year-y posts, do link me, I wanna see.

Happy reading!

      1. I’m sure I can come up with a few. Do you want novels only? Also any limit on genre or if it actually has a sex scene eventually? Any limit on the gender of the couple?

        Like

      2. If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio – Suspense/Mystery. Not a romance but many of the characters definitely have romances going on (and it’s just a really great book)

        The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren – Fluffy romance, but has some hate-to-love tension towards the beginning

        A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – Fantasy. This is the second book in a series, and the first has some tension too so honestly it’s not bad either. But keep in mind this series is a bit whirlwind goofy, so if you pick this one up go into it with the intention of being entertained instead of looking for fantastic literature. PS never use the word ‘sheathing’.

        Uprooted by Naomi Novik – Fantasy. Romantic subplot in this one, pretty good. One of my favorite books, tbh.

        Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas – Fantasy. Same thing as the other Maas book, this is the second in the series and the first has a bit of tension, too. Also whirlwind goofy but entertaining. Maas is good at making characters pine.

        Easy by Tammara Webber – Romance, deals with some heavier topics, but the main two characters are lovely

        I’ve also heard Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin is supposed to have some good hate-to-love tension going on, but I haven’t read it yet myself (it’s on my shelf). The rep it has and the reviews I’ve seen for it though make me believe it’s probably accurate.
