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 100 books: 159/100! Do you think I could make it to 200 this year??

Read diverse authors and genres: While I focused on spooky thrillers and paranormal fantasy this month, I tried to include some authors with diverse backgrounds

Buy fewer books: It was my birthday month so I treated myself a few times!

Finish more series: I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series that I started last year, finished the Anna Dressed in Blood duology, and I caught up on Small Spaces and Blood and Ash. I started two series that I need to finish.

Reread more: Crescent City

Read at least two classics: 2/2 (Haunting of Hill House)

Read one graphic novel each month: The Dark Knight Rises



Fall break definitely helped me read more this month than in previous months, plus the Sookie Stackhouse audiobooks were ridiculously bingeable! I can’t believe there are only two months left in 2020… it’s been a tough year, but there’s so much more I want to read this year!

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

Hello! I’m Caroline! I am a teacher, a book lover, and a nerd. My passions include reading, writing, bookstagram, barre & yoga, baking, binging TV shows, and Star Wars. I love stories in all formats because they can transport you to a different world while helping you understand the world around you. I have always found books to be a particularly magical source of imagination.
