My Reading Challenge (Update)

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a nice Sunday!❀ Earlier this year I posted my reading challenge and because a couple of month have passed since then I thought what better time to update you guys on how I’m doing than now!

  • I set myself a goal of 75 books and I’m currently at 28, so I’m doing pretty good so far.
  • Another goal was to read more classics and well, I can’t really say that’s working so good right now, but there is still lots of time left.
  • The next resolution is probably on every bookaholic’s list and that would be: Buy less books. I’ve been doing surprisingly well for the last two month and haven’t bought too many new books. However, there are some new releases I’m dying to read.
  • I also want to reread at least 2 book this year. I’ve already reread Carry On by Rainbow Rowell and I’m probably going to reread All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
  • Since I’m not constantly buying new books, I’m also doing a pretty good job at reducing my tbr. However this’ll probably change as soon as I get new books!

When you’ve read my post on this years reading goals you’ve probably seen that I set myself some random challenges to tick off just for fun. Let’s see how many of those I was able to complete!
