I fell quite short of my reading goals in 2018. You may ask…am I disappointed in my reading performance? No 🙂
See…2018 was a good year. A year that found me struggling to take on new hobbies, rediscover old passions, and push myself through some rather strenuous personal growth. Sadly, my reading volume just didn’t keep up with the rest of the year. The good new is I read some fun books and am looking forward to 2019’s reading list! So without further ado……here is my 2018 Reading Review.
Total Books Read
Goal: 50 Read: 22
Nonfiction Books Read
Goal: 12 Read: 6
Historical Fiction: 3
Do Not Finish: 1
I entered the Goodreads Challenge with the goal of completing 40 books in 2017.
Total Read: 37 books
- Nonfiction: 5
- Fiction: 32
I didn’t finish as many books as I would have liked but I was happy at how close I came despite struggling with a reading slum both in the Winter AND Summer. I was also happy that I started reading more nonfiction during the latter half of the year. You may remember, my second 2017 goal was to read 5 specific nonfiction books. I only managed to read two of them (Descent Into Darkness and The Poisoner’s Handbook). 2017 was not what I would call an amazing reading year but I am still happy with the progress I made. I rediscovered my love for historic nonfiction and started 2018 excited to read!
This year I am planning on keeping my goals simple. I am signing up for the Goodreads Challenge (you should join me!) and am aiming for 50 books read this year. I could have easily surpassed this number last year if not for those pesky reading slumps! I also am setting a Nonfiction goal for myself. My goal is for at least 12 of the books I read this year to be Nonfiction. I am not going to pick a specific list to read, but instead go where my mood sends me!
Total Books: 50
