Round-Up: My Summer 2018 TBR

The Top Ten Tuesday topic for June 19th was “books on my summer TBR,” and I pledged to read the following:

So, what did I actually read?

On the list…

Not on the list…

What I missed…

Did any of you have a summer TBR? Did you stick to it? Let me know!

Round-Up: My Spring 2018 TBR

The Top Ten Tuesday topic for March 20th was “books on my spring TBR,” and I pledged to read the following:

So, what did I actually read?

On the list…

Not on the list…

What I missed…

All in all, I didn’t do a terrible job – I read eight books out of a planned ten, but I only read 50% of those I actually wanted to read. (Isn’t that life??) Did any of you have a spring TBR? Did you stick to it? Let me know!

2016 Recap

AHHH. How is it already 2017??? (Gross.) I made two major goals in 2016 again: finish 40 books and check off all 24 challenges as part of Book Riot’s #ReadHarder campaign – and, well, I failed, AGAIN. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (You can see my actual goals here.)

If you’re interested, here’s how my stats broke down:

#ReadHarder

Book Riot introduced their #ReadHarder challenge in 2015 and I loved the idea. It got me to actually think about what book I was reading, and, in some cases, gave me that extra nudge to read something that was already in my tbr pile. I went through all the challenges and made a list to help guide my reading… but again decided to bypass that list and start reading books just because I wanted to read them. I also started a food memoir (Fresh off the Boat) and a book about religion (The God Delusion) – but didn’t find them interesting enough to finish – and couldn’t find anything on my tbr list that was 100 pages or less (although Adulthood Is a Myth came close).

I read 9 books, or 38% of my goal of 24.

2015 Recap

I made two goals in 2015: finish 41 books and check off all 24 challenges as part of Book Riot’s #ReadHarder campaign – and, well, I failed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (You can see my actual goals here – which include books I said I would read in 2015 as part of a Top Ten Tuesday post – but that’s not even worth mentioning because I read NONE of them.)

If you’re interested, here’s how my stats broke down:

#ReadHarder

Book Riot introduced their #ReadHarder challenge in 2015 and I loved the idea. It got me to actually think about what book I was reading, and, in some cases, gave me that extra nudge to read something that was already in my tbr pile. I went through all the challenges and made a list last December to help guide my reading… and then sometime during the summer, I kind of decided to bypass that list and start reading books just because I wanted to read them. So… I didn’t accomplish my specific goals, but I did read a lot of books that popped onto my radar in 2015 (HELLO MS. MARVEL) – and that’s just as good.

I read 16 books, or 67% of my goal of 24.
