Anyway, I have four major goals this 2015 (not including the one that says, "I have to read more").
1. Catch up on reading - and reviewing - my review copies.
2. Start and/or finish a series.
3. Annihilate my physical TBR.
4. Don't buy more books.
I only joined two reading challenges this year:
Awesome how they're both violet-themed, right? It's my favorite color. But I digress.
Currently, I am just indulging my reading mood and not attempting - yet again - to make and stick to a fixed TBR. I pick up any title that I want to read that's on my shelf, physical or otherwise. I don't want to risk falling back into a slump which I suffered these past months and recently just got out of eventhough I really don't have anything to worry about since I am 30 - 30! - books ahead of schedule.
I knew this year is going to be busy so I set my goal to reading 100 books and I intend to reach that by the end of August. I probably won't be setting it higher since by the start of September I will be at my busiest (heh) and I don't want to worry myself with catching up on anything and just be content with my reading pace especially with a limited time. And maybe it would be a good time to pick up those huge books I got:
If I manage to reach 150 at the end of 2015, though, I would be so freaking happy.
Now I have to focus on my Witches and Witchcraft RC. My goal is to read 6 - 10 witchy books and do you know how many I've read (and reviewed)? ONE. Like, wow. Someone pat my back.
My Goodreads Statistics (as of June 2015):
The average pages isn't really accurate since some of the books I read doesn't have the number of pages indicated in their profile and weren't counted (I guess), but nevertheless 268 is still good.
As of July 30, 2015:
Also, with regards to my goals, I told myself to take more notice of books that are not new releases especially books that were published more than 5 years ago or so. I'd say I did well. I even read one that was first published in 1989!
Let's talk about my major goals. I think I failed all of them. Well, not really since the year is not yet over but I only reviewed 18 books so far! Granted, I don't have that many books for review because I don't accept or request for copies (even if I badly want to) when I know I don't have a lot of time. Still... my Netgalley ratio is 27% (!!!!).
Catch up on reading - and reviewing - my review copies?
I read 4 series-enders so far this year although I am still hoping for Until the Beginning and P.S. I Still Love You to have a sequel.
And then I started AND finished two series.
HERE. I also picked up Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews hoping to add another to this list before I realized it's still a continuing series.
Start and/or finish a series?
Annihilate my physical TBR? Don't buy more books?
How about you? How is 2015 (so far) for you?
