I finished my Goodreads Goal in February…

goodreads goal finI finished my Goodreads Goal in February

In 2018 I set my goal for 30 books, this is the first time I’ve set it low on purpose. I knew from previous years reading I would read more than this and in the back of my head I had my own alternate goal. However throughout my years blogging I’ve seen much discourse on Goodreads goal being a cause of stress and reading slumps should we ever get behind.

Setting it to something I knew I could achieve took all that away, but I still kept it to 30 as in 2016 I read 37 books so I’m very aware how my own mood and life can affect my reading in multiple ways.

I set it to 30 again this year and well… as the title suggests, I completed this is in February. Keep reading to find out what I read and my thoughts on the books.

Remember in December when I made a post about my reading goals for 2019 in which I said “Iโ€™d also like to seriously cut down on the amount of books I get“? *cackles uncontrollably* Yeah me either apparently.

So I suggest you keep reading to see what a mess I put myself in with my TBR pile and yes I got more books than there are days in January.
