Back in January I set some reading goals for myself and I thought it was time that I update you on how I’m doing.
1. My first goal was to read 200 books this year. Not a terribly lofty goal, I’ll admit, since I read just over 200 last year. However it seems life has stepped in this year. I am currently at 60 books read this year (gulp!). I’ll really have to get cracking if I want to meet that goal. I am going to say that life has kept me away from my books more than usual this year. Job changes, busier children, house fires. At least I’ve come to appreciate a day that I can spend quietly reading.
2. I wanted to read more romantic suspense this year. At least one a month. And yeah. That’s not going to happen. I’ve read 2-3 of them. And struggled through each one. I’m just not ready for that kind of suspense in my life.
3. The Wallflowers (Lisa Kleypas) challenge from my friend Kay. It’s a good thing I’m doing this mid-year check, because that’s a goal that I can still meet. I’ve enjoyed the ones that I’ve read so far. Memo to self: get the rest.
4. An challenge from Anne. Hey Anne, did you ever give me a challenge? If so, you’ll need to remind me again what it was.
I have started so many good series this year but sadly for every good book I read, it seems that 5 more get added to my TBR list. And there’s no way to get caught up. There are few that I just can’t get out of my mind lately that I wanted to share with you.
The Mountain Masters/Dark Haven series by Cherise Sinclair. I have re-read the entire series again this year and loved the new addition Edge of the Enforcer. I wish she could write them faster.
The Naughty Bits series by Joey W. Hill. My biggest complaint is that it’s being released one little part at a time. Arg! I want the whole story now.
And I’m looking forward to the latest release by Reece Butler. No Strings Attached (release date 6/6).
How are your reading goals coming along?
