2020 READING GOAL PROGRESS

At the beginning of the year, I shared my 2020 reading goals. When I post my wrap up at the end of each month, I also want to reflect on the progress I’m making toward reaching my goals.

Read 75 books: 47/75 (23 books ahead of schedule!)

Explore more genres: I’ve been focusing on comfort reads this month, but I’m getting frustrated with thriller/mystery books so I’m planning to take a break from those in May.

Buy fewer books: I bought Aurora Rising and preordered Aurora Burning but I think those were my only purchases in April.

Finish more series: I finished The Folk of the Air series! And I made great progress on a few others.

Reread more: The Sword of Summer

Read at least two classics: Not yet, but I’m planning to read one next month!

Read one graphic novel each month: Saga, Vols. 3-6


Overall, I’m proud of the progress I made in April. This is the highest number of books I’ve read in one month so far in 2020 (probably because I read so much Saga, but still). I have a few more weeks of distance teaching to go, and then I am out for summer! I’m hoping the life can slowly start going back to normal, but it’s hard to say right now. One thing I know is that I will definitely have even more time to spend reading during summer break.

How did your month go? What was the best book you read in April?
