Reading Resolutions

What’s a new year without any reading resolutions? Absolutely nothing. I announced my resolutions in a blog post, but here I’m keeping a running update of all of them.

– Last update October 21st, 2018

Goal 1: Continue my book buying budget of buying only 2 books every month

Goal 2: Continue my series I need to finish lists

Goal 3: Goodreads Reading Challenge of 85 books

Read 103 books out of 85.

Goal 4: Popsugar 2018 Reading Challenge

If I did the prompt, it is striked through. If it just mentions a book, it means that I’m planning on reading that book to finish the prompt. (And yes I know, I do realize that I should be reading one book for every prompt, but I’m sure I’ll clean that up by the end of the year.)
