2018 Reading Goals

The short version is that because I succeeded in reading 75 books last year, I decided to up my goal in 2018 – with a few extra twists. This is mainly because I love challenges and plans, and having some direction in my reading life is really great.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the diversity of voices in my life and the diversity of voices in my books specifically.

I’m going to read 100 books in 2018 – and 75 of them will be by women and people of color.

December 2017 Books

I didn’t read as much as I’d hoped this month (just four books!) but I did complete my challenge to read 75 books in 2017, which is what I’m happiest about!

November 2017 Books

I started off November planning to get through as many of my Book of the Month picks as I could – I’m great about ordering them, but not great about actually following through and reading them soon after I get them. But then library books and book club and freelance work took over, and I concentrated on reading those things instead. This was a pretty good month for reading: I loved some books, didn’t like some others, but I managed to read a ton.

October 2017 Books

There are some months where I’m really busy and read very little (like September) and then there was this month, where I was incredibly busy and still managed to read eleven books. It’s probably some sort of procrastination technique, but it’s productive in its own way so I’m going to take it.

September 2017 Books

I didn’t read as many books in September as last month! Between a trip to San Francisco, races, visits to Disneyland, camping in Joshua Tree, a bunch of concerts, and generally living life, there wasn’t as much time.

COLLABOREADS | A Book in a Series

This month’s prompt was A Book in a Series. I recently finished the The Selection by Kiera Cass, which is the first of a series of three books. I’ve read all three over the past few weeks. There are two other companion books that take place later and are currently sitting at home waiting for me, but these three are a complete series. I’m going to talk about the first one! I previously tried to listen to the audiobook of this but I hated the voice, so I never got past the first chapter. Happy to say reading it myself was a much better experience.
