Goodreads Challenge 2019 Update #1

Hello everyone,

I hope you had an excellent weekend. We are now a third of the way through 2019, so it is time for an update on my Goodreads challenge progress!

I set myself a target of 50 books this year. Maybe I could have aimed slightly higher, but I did not want to put too much pressure on myself. And so far I have read 20 books, which according to Goodreads is four ahead of schedule.

The most pleasing thing about my reading challenge this year is that so far I have read from a much wider range of genres. In 2018 thrillers or mysteries accounted for a lot of my books, but this time I have balanced it out with more fantasy, classics, and a couple of non-fiction reads.

Here are the books I have read in 2019:

I am quite happy with 20 books so far, although I feel like I would have read more if it hadn’t been for a combination of a lack of time, and the fact I was ill throughout March.

However, the books on my upcoming TBR all look amazing and I can’t wait to get started on them. There are lots of new releases that I am so excited to read, so the next few months look very promising!

For this reason, I am expecting to make more progress with my Goodreads challenge by the time I post my next update!

Are you taking part in the 2019 Goodreads Challenge? How are getting on? Let me know in the comments!

Happy reading πŸ™‚

  1. Oh my God, you just need 30 to finish, congrats. That’s job well done. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Most of the books you’ve read are on my TBR as well and hopefully, I get to read them this year.*fingers crossed* I’m not really good at following my TBR.

  2. Wow, 50 books! I’ve never gone past 30. I didn’t make my reading goal (24) last year, so I put a conservative number (20) this year. …Only I’m halfway through already and I could definitely have made a more aggressive goal.

  3. I have only just joined Goodreads so ago new to me and I haven’t yet updated my reads so far. I’m using the bookriot read harder challenge to encourage myself to read something different but am obviously 4 months behind! Task 1 is epistolary novel so I have ordered Obama’s book of letters to his daughter “Of Thee I Sing”. I’ll try catch up with you!
