Hello bookish friends!!!
Happy first day of the second half of the year!
Crazy to think that the year is already half done. Where did that time go? I don’t even know….
Over the last day or two I have been enjoying reading others’ wrap up and goal review posts and have been inspired to write my own.
So without further ado…..
Beginning with the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I have read 50/75 books this year so far; meaning I can adopt a more relaxed pace for the second half of the year.
Lucky…. since I’ve fallen into a massive reading slump I have no idea how to get out of.
Throughout the year, I have chosen one favourite book each month….usually a 5⭐ read….documenting it in my bookish spreadsheet for moments such as these….
Sharing my favourite books January to June:
The majority (32/50) of books read have been 4⭐ so I have actually had an amazing bookish year so far and that, hopefully, will continue through to December.
Honourable mentions (or books I loved almost as much as my favourites):
Pages read: 17,546
Most read genre: Romance/Contemporary
Most read format: Audiobook
ARCs read: 13 (with only 3 left sitting on my shelf – probably time for me to request some more)
Book reviews written: 20 – I’m still working on the book review thing….they’re just sooooooo time consuming.
Goals for the rest of 2020:
- Get on top of this book review thing…or find another way…
- Surpass my 75 book Goodreads goal…maybe I should have tried for 100 books
- Complete all of my reading challenges – Popsugar Reading Challenge, A to Z Challenge and Modern Mrs Darcy’s Reading Challenge….anyone else doing these?
But most importantly…ENJOY this wonderful hobby and being involved in this amazing bookish community. ❤️
