The first half of 2018 has been and gone and I’m here to give you a bookish goals update for this first 6 months.
My full goal for reading is 25 books for the entire year, but I feel like I will most likely beat that considering so far I’ve read 23 books!
I also had 4 other goals, some I’ve done better on than others… Those goals were:
- Read Carrie Fisher’s 4 fiction books – I’ve read none so far and only own 2, I need to work on that!!
- Read 5 classics – I’ve read 1… Again, I seriously need to work on that, but I just haven’t been in the mood for them at all.
- Read 5 non-fiction books – I’ve actually read 6 so far, focusing on the Kray twins and Queen Victoria. I’ve really enjoyed learning though.
- Complete 3 series – I’ve completed 1, the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. I have plans to complete another soon.
Now to get on with the list of books I’ve read and their ratings!
