When it comes to my reading challenges, November is probably the month I dread most. Why? Because it forces me to look back at the reading challenges I set myself at the start of 2018 and see how bad / good I did at them. As I’m writing this, I have no clue yet as to the state of my progress so… Let’s say I’m pretty curious to find out how I’ve done so far!
With only November and December left to try and tick off as many goals as possible, it’s important to set a game plan so we can at least try and tick off some goals, if not all of them. Wishful thinking, I know! But at least it’s a month of giving it an extra shot! If you want to check out the original post for my Remember November-challenge, simply click here!
For those of you who don’t know about my 2018 goals, you can check out this post or go to the top of this page and check out all the tabs beneath “Reading Challenge 2018” where I split my goals up into different challenges.
So, let’s see what I’ve yet to read / tick off, shall we?!
I feel like I should mention this first, simply because it’ll influence the way I pick the books to read. My boyfriend challenged me to read 75 of the books I owned before 2018 and.. well.. I’m nowhere near that number yet. I have yet to read 29 BOOKS MORE before I reach that goal. I’ve no clue if that’s even possible so.. we’ll see? There’ll be a more detailed post on this later on, so keep an eye out!
Books to read: 150 – current state: 148
Pages to read: 55.000 – current state: 52.076
This seems doable, doesn’t it?! I won’t focus on these two goals because I’m simply going to see where I end up at the end of the year.
The goal was to get my owned TBR down to 100 but.. I’m not even going to talk about that. I started at 145 and am nearing 200? Or something? Right now? So, yeah. Let’s ignore the existence of this goal altogether.
I only wanted to reread The Raven Cycle the moment I really felt like rereading it and that hasn’t happened so far. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t but I’m not forcing myself to pick them up. As for the GoT-series? Let’s just say I’ll be happy if I manage to read one of those books before the year is over at this point..
Humor & Comedy: 1/3
Graphic Novels / Manga: 1/5
I’ve only mentioned the genres I haven’t ticked off yet. Fact is I don’t even own any unread graphic novels / manga anymore so.. I’m going to leave that one be. As for the other ones, I want to read the following books to try and tick those off:
BOOKS AND MUNCHES BINGO
As I was prepping this post, I had yet one book to read being for the prompt “book with a fruit or vegetable in the title” but I just finished Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems today so, yay!
Q – V – X – Y – Z
This is on author’s last name, so.. Quite difficult! I decided not to buy books to complete this challenge, so I’ll just have to be happy with the end result. Unless one of you has the BEST recommendation for an author that’d fit one of my missing letters, that is.
Anyway. These are the books I own and can use to tick off some more letters:
Q – NONE
V – The Art of Baking Blind, Vaughan Sarah
X – NONE
Y – NONE
Z – The Book Thief, Zusak Markus
And that’s it! So.. to put everything together, I’ve yet to read these books:
This seems.. doable? If I add those page numbers to my current amount of pages read, that would get me to… 54.108! And as December has to be added as well, I’m well on my way of smashing that goal too – yay!
How are you going on your 2018 reading goals? Are you on schedule?
Did you give up on some challenges?
Going to join me with Remember November and try ticking them off anyway?
