2021 Reading Wrap-Up: First Quarter

Can you believe the first quarter of the year has passed? Winter is done, and we’re now entering the spring months that’ll hopefully bring us some new, good reads.

Reading-wise, I think I did good this first quarter. I read a variety of stuff and managed to get through 15 books! If I keep that up, I’ll certainly pass my Goodreads goal for this year, which is at a manageable 50 books. Let’s see what I got through.

2021 Reading Plans

I’m all done reflecting on what I read and did last year. 2020 was a good year for my reading and blogging. I read way more than I anticipated (94 books, comics, and picture books) and blogged a lot more too. My followers rose as well, which was pretty cool. 😊 Thank you everyone!

I hope such positivity for my blogging and reading will continue into 2021. I kept my reading goals manageable last year, and I plan to continue doing so this year. (I just need to limit the amount of reading events I participate in at a time.)

Many of my goals below are the same as last year.

Overall reading goals

spend less
read more of my own books
complete some series

I spent less and read more of my own books in 2020 but didn’t complete many series. I’d like to continue with these goals because I know I can do better.

2020 Reading Wrap-Up: Fourth Quarter

I managed to read more than I expected in the last quarter of 2020. I read a variety of things — novels, audiobooks, comics — and even stepped outside my comfort zone to pick up a bunch of romance novels. I’d say it was a good reading quarter.

2020 Reading Wrap-Up: Third Quarter

I can’t believe it’s already the end of the third quarter of the year. I read much more than I thought I would and even managed to read a little of everything: novels, comics, audio books, picture books, and mangas. I’m really surprised at myself. Of course, this is all because I participated in the NEWTs readathon, although I forwent doing a wrap up for it. Well, here are my stats for the third quarter.

2020 Reading Wrap-Up: Second Quarter

The second quarter for the year was much better reading-wise. I kicked my reading slump to the curb, dove into some single-issue comics, and then the pandemic rolled in and grounded me so that all I had left to do was work, eat, sleep, read (and play some Sims, lol).

I read 31 things this quarter. 31! That’s a whole lot for me, although some were comic books that are as short as 20 or so pages. I’m amazed at myself.

2020 Reading Wrap-Up: First Quarter

The first quarter of 2020 was a trial in my reading life, personal life, and working life. I feel exhausted by it. Reading-wise, it wasn’t bad. I read some good books but didn’t read as much as I would have liked because I suffered from a reading slump. I’m hoping the second quarter will be much better in all areas of life. Well, here are my stats.

2020 Reading Plans

Last year I tailored my reading plans to my habits, and it worked out well for me. I hit more of my reading goals than I did in prior years, so I intend to continue that trend in 2020.

Overall reading goals:

spend less
read more of my own books
complete some series

These are the same overall goals I had last year, but I’d like to see if I can repeat my success with them. I spent more than I wanted to in 2019, but it was less than previous years. I also surprised myself and mostly read books either from the library or from own shelves. I’d like to do that again and hopefully read even more books from my shelves. Also, I’d like to complete some of the many series I have going, if I choose to continue with the stories. My other reading plans:

Goodreads Challenge
50 books

It’s the same amount as 2019 and I know I’ll read more than that, so this is my relaxed goal while I secretly strive for 100 books.

2019 Reading Wrap-Up: Fourth Quarter

My last quarterly wrap up for 2019. Fall has become my busiest time of year but despite all I was doing, I managed to complete 13 books. I’m behind on reviews so most of the titles are unlinked. Anyway, here are the stats:

2019 Reading Wrap-Up: Third Quarter

This quarter blew my reading goal through the roof! I’m now 15 books past my set goal and that’s thanks to the NEWTs Magical Readathon, which I participated in August. By the end of that readathon, I felt overwhelmed. I have so many reviews to catch up on now. Well anyway, here are my stats for the third reading quarter.

2019 Reading Wrap-Up: Second Quarter

The second quarter of the year has drawn to a close. I’ve read more books, compared to my first reading quarter, and have enjoyed more books. I guess this was expected since in this quarter I participated in 2 readathons, one of which focused solely on fantasy novels — my favorite genre. All around, this quarter was a great one for reading and bookish events, but not so much for blogging. I’m way behind on reviews and such.
