Goodreads Reading Challenge 2017 & 2018

Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone had a fun (but safe!) time last night! I sure did. I seriously cannot believe it’s 2018 already. Times flies, especially the older you get… D; Either way, another year means more books to read, yay! I already started a new book today to celebrate. Whoo!

This post is going to touch on my 2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge and then on my 2018 as well.

It is what I had done the previous year and I had managed to exceed that so I figured that was a reasonable number, especially with me working two jobs and returning to school. This year I also exceeded my goal by reading 64 books! So challenge completed! :D

I feel like it’s still a doable number for me since I’ll still be in school and am currently looking for a second job once more. With my new job I haven’t been reading quite as much so I’m hoping to make time to read more on  a regular basis during the week. Wish me luck!

And that’s that!

Did you meet your 2017 reading goal? How many books are you hoping to read this year? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading! :)


Reading Challenge and a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I just wanted to do a quick post before I have to go to work that covers the subject of my reading challenge last year and and my upcoming one. So, last year I set my Goodreads 2015 Reading Challenge to 70 books. Guess what? I made it! Exactly 70 books. Whoo! The year before I had set it to 100, but only happened to read 69. I was more upset about not making it to 70 than 100, so I figured 70 was a good number. But this year I’m dropping it down to 60, just because I am really hoping to return to school in the fall. I’ve been saying that for the past two and a half years…but I mean it this time! So wish me luck! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year and I am looking forward to all the future blog posts to be read! I’m also hoping to be a bit more active with my posts this year…so we’ll see how that goes… xD
