2018 Reading Goals

Below are the reading goals I set for the year – it was really about encouraging myself to continue reading lots as I don’t often track the number of books I read.  I thought this would be a fun exercise and a good challenge to remember to keep on reading even when life gets busy!  As I probably won’t blog about every single book I read (if only I can love them all that much), I’m going to keep adding to this list as I read throughout the year to hold myself accountable and let you know what I’m reading!

June Reads

My June Books (2 on the Kobo)

Given that it’s June 30th, I thought it was worth adding in a half year status on my goals!  I am sitting at 48% of my goal which is technically one book behind (I track on Good Reads and that’s what the site tells me) but I am well on track to meeting each of them and I have read some really stellar books so far this year!  And I am highly anticipating many of the books coming out in the back half of the year – new ones from some of my favourite authors!  Cheers to more reading!
