Today’s post is going to be all about my Goodreads Challenge and where I’m at so far for the year. I must confess that I haven’t been very active in updating how many books I’ve been reading. I really need to set aside a few moments of my day to update the widget but I feel like I have a thousand other things to do 😩 I’ve been a bad noodle these last two weeks and have not been using my planner which has caused huge disorganization in my life.

This year I decided to set myself a smaller goal for the reading challenge. Usually my goals are around the 90s-100s but knowing how much more occupied I’ve been this year, I knew I had to set myself a goal that was attainable with the amount of time I actually have and wouldn’t stress me out. Reading is something I do constantly and reaching that 90-100 isn’t out of the park but I’ve started various new hobbies this year, I wanted to be able to dedicate a reasonable amount of time to each.

30 books seemed like a good happy medium. It was more than a handful yet not as much as last year’s goal. I don’t feel pressured to be on track and I can easily extend the goal if I reach it before the year is over. [Which will probably happen]. Not to mention, I can take my time with certain books and reread them when I feel like there was something I was missing. I can even revisit some of my favorites when I fall into a reading slump.

How’s your Goodreads Challenge going? Are you on track?
