Reading Challenges Mid -Year Review

Since June has come and gone it's time to review how I am doing in my reading challenges. To be frank I am not doing well at all. This is mainly because I often view challenges as what I want to read, not what I will read. I don't make TBRs based on my challenges or pick up a book based on it, I only pick up a book if I want to read it. So, most often the books I read don't correspond with my challenges. I'm fine with this and there's nothing wrong with it, but I want to get better at consulting my challenges for books mainly for my series challenge. I really want to finish lots more series before the end of the year.


Goodreads Reading Challenge.

2014 Reading Challenge

2014 Reading Challenge
Kimberly has read 44 books toward her goal of 100 books.
I have read 44 books out of 100 so far this year.

To tell you guys a not-so-secret secret I don't take this challenge all that series. For the past 3 years my yearly goal has been to read at least 100 books and I've never made it there yet. That doesn't bother me one bit. For me I look at this challenge as my overall goal, but not a goal to stress over. If I read 100 books I read 100 books and I'll be really proud of myself. However, if I read 80 books in a year I'll still be happy and I won't be sad that I didn't get to 100.
