Like many of you, I use Goodreads. One of my favourite features is the Reading Challenge goal you can set every year. Each year I make it just a little bit higher and I’ve done fairly well achieving that number.
Now, many people say doing this makes reading a chore, that reading should be more than just numbers. I can totally see where they’re coming from, however for me if I reach the goal, great! But if I don’t, then that’s okay too as long as I enjoyed what I read that year. So for me, the Goodreads Challenge is a way to push myself without making me dread reading.
I also set mini-challenges throughout the year and in future posts I’ll be telling you all about them. Some are taken from sites like Modern Mrs Darcy whilst others I’ve set for myself on my own. And again, if I reach those goals, yipee, but if I don’t, I’ll survive!
My Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge so far:
Some of the books I’ve read this year:
It’s a pretty eclectic mix if I do say so myself. Quite a few helped me tick off boxes on my mini-challenges, several were ARC’s, and others were just because I felt like reading them.
The current stats:
- I’ve read 53 books
- I’ve read 18944 pages
- 8 were rated 5 stars
- 29 were rated 4 stars
- 16 were rated 3 stars.
Have you read any of these? Are you doing the Goodreads challenge or any other challenges? Let me know in the comments!
