Well, I’m gonna start this off by saying, whoops?
2016 has ended, and I don’t think I got any of my reading challenges and goals done. I stopped keeping track by May, and that’s the way life goes I guess. I always seem to forget other than the Goodreads challenge. Should I even set up 2017 goals? Might as well. I’ll keep it simple!
First, let’s take a look at how I did with my 2016 goals!
|2016 GOALS: HOW DID I DO?|
Key: Yes · No · Sort of
- Read more Middle Grade (Goal: At least one a month)?
Uhhh, sort of? I think I read more Middle Grade books than the previous year (not as much as I’d like to). I definitely did not read at least one a month. I read a total of 15+ Middle Grade book, and I’m honestly not satisfied with that.
- Read General Fiction (At least one a month)?
I totally failed at this one. I didn’t even get to the books I said I gotta read. None of them.
- Read Classical Fiction (Goal: 8 Books)?
Don’t look at me. I’m a failure at this. My classical literature books are still sitting on my shelves, waiting to be read. (I’m sorry, my babies!)
- Participate and stick with reading challenges?
Hahahahahahahahaha, no. I failed at all these reading challenges except the Goodreads one, which was quite easy to do.
- Read unread TBR books from my bookshelves (Goal: At least two books)?
My poor books, I didn’t do this at all. I did a small book purge, but reading them? Nope.
- Do more comic/graphic novel related posts?
This pains me because I didn’t do as much as I hoped. By August, my life got flipped upside down. Although comics/graphic novels bring me a lot of joy, I just wasn’t able to write some intelligible post about my favorites.
- Do the 2015 goals I set for myself in 2016?
|2017 GOALS: WHAT DO I PLAN TO ACHIEVE?|
- Read more comics/graphic novels and write more posts about them.
My love. Those are the books I’m enjoying immensely.
- Read unread TBR books from my bookshelves (Goal: At least two books)
Like the previous two years, this goal will always be on my list. I have too much books! And it keeps growing and growing. I want to read them and maybe get rid of them if I don’t like it. I just never seem to be able to read them even though they’re sitting on my shelves.
- Do a massive book purge.
I don’t have any room on my shelves! There are many that just don’t belong on my shelves anymore. I need to read it and then move on. It’s difficult though because I have fond feelings about every one of them, purely for the nostalgia factor. I want to see at least two shelves empty!
