2018 Reading Wrap-Up: First Quarter

The first quarter of the year has just ended and my reading is off on a good start. I messed around and read 21 books this quarter, completing approximately half of my Goodreads Reading Goal of 45 books.

I didn’t expect this to happen and certainly didn’t plan for it. But I tend to read more when worried or upset and this quarter had a lot of frustrating ups and downs in my personal life, so maybe that’s why I completed so many books. But anyway, I’m glad the quarter ended on this positive note. Here are the stats:

2017 Reading Wrap-Up: Fourth Quarter

Ahh… the last quarterly reading wrap-up of the year. The amount of items read dropped this quarter since I had less time and opportunity to read, and also because I read more novels than comics and audio books, which can be quickly consumed. However, I am proud of my progress because I read more than I thought I’d be able to and have surpassed my reading goal for the year.

2017 Reading Wrap-Up: Third Quarter

Here’s to wrapping up the third quarter of the year! 😀

My reading spiked during this quarter because I participated in several reading events causing me to read a total of 26 books, most of which were new-to-me reads. This quarter also contained my favorite season — summer — so my interest in books received a jolt because I was happier and more eager to participate in my favorite activity. Overall, this quarter was fun and a success. Here are the stats:

2017 Reading Wrap-Up: Second Quarter

My reading has picked up! 😀 I’m glad for this because at the beginning of the year I was very indecisive about what books to read and sometimes wasn’t in the mood for the activity, which is okay, but I’m glad that I’ve found stories that held my interest and propelled me to try others.

The spring quarter was good to me, though I was sick for most of it because of allergies, and I found myself consuming less audio books and trying more nonfiction, mainly memoirs and autobiographies. Here are the stats:

2017 Reading Wrap-Up: First Quarter

My reading progress this quarter was marked by indecisiveness. I couldn’t decide on what to read, so I kept starting books instead of completing them. Despite that, I managed to read 18 books, but that was helped along by audio books, which I’ve learned are pretty quick to get through, and comic books, which are usually fast reads. Thus I’m almost half done with my Goodreads reading goal of 40 books. I decided to go easy on myself. Anyway, here are the stats for this quarter.

2016 Reading Wrap-Up: Fourth Quarter

Here’s the second of many wrap-ups that will be posted on this blog over the next few days. The following is a quick summary of the books and comics I read in the last quarter of 2016. I finished the year pretty strong by reading 24 things, but many of them were quite short or were audio books, so I got through them very quickly.

I started the year intending to read 60 books, but was discouraged in the early months and dropped my reading goal to 30 books. However by the end of the second quarter, I was doing so well that I bumped it back up to 60 and now, at the end of the year, I’m able to end with a strong 88 books read, which includes comics and audio books. I’m a pretty happy booknerd at the moment. 😀

2016 Reading Wrap-Up: Third Quarter

It’s the end of the third quarter of the year and my reading is still going strong. I bumped up my Goodreads goal from 30 to 60 and have since completed it. It was much easier to accomplish my reading goal this year since I’ve started to read comics, graphic novels, and illustrated books, which have all become my new favorite media to consume.

My reading slowed down a bit this quarter, however, because life got busy. But as I was drafting this, I realized I read more than I thought I did.
