I know it’s a cliche, but where has the time gone? It’s already June and we’re nearly half-way through the year. So it’s time to check in on how my reading is going, and how well I’ve been meeting my goals and resolutions.
1) Read 52 Books
I’m currently on 42! I have read a few short books and graphic novel this year, but even without that I seem to be spending more time on reading which I’m really enjoying. I may up my goal, possibly to 75. We’ll see when I reach 52!
2) Read more books than I buy
FAIL. Not helped by the bundle of 24 graphic novels/comics I bought through Humble Bundle. But, by the end of the year I hope to have read most, if not all, of them.
3) Continue/Finish some series
I’ve been doing well with this one!
Two of these I’ve actually decided I no longer want to read, sometimes we have to be realistic in the fact that we will never pick them up! Those series are A Song of Ice and Fire be George R. R. Martin (these books are hard work and while they were good, they didn’t blow me away) and The Inheritance Series by Christopher Paolini (it’s been way too long since I read Eragon).
I have now finished The Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness and picked up book 2 of The Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross.
& Bone by Laini Taylor). I have also picked up The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett but I’ve really struggled to get into it so I have put it down for now.
