It’s over! No more commitment to blogging every day! No more having to get something up, even though it’s late, even though I don’t really feel like writing. I’m glad I went through with my plan, but I don’t think it was as successful as I had hoped. I certainly posted much more than I’ve ever done, but the quality wasn’t where I wanted it to be. I think my next blogging goal will be to really focus on the quality of each one of my posts. I want to make sure each one is saying something I want it to, not just blabbering on about whatever. Also, I like to focus more on books themselves, and that’s hard to do when I’m posting ever day but not reading that many new books.
So what did my month in reading look like?
Here’s my November breakdown:
10 books total
8 fiction 80%
2 nonfiction 2%
9 female authors 90%
3 work in translation 30%
Those numbers include 3 graphic novels and one audio book.
It was a good month for reading. Only 2 of the 10 books were 3 star reads (which is still plenty respectable), 6 were 4 star, and 2 were 5 star. Not bad at all.
I’ve got a bit of a goal to read 100 titles before the year is up. That means this month I need to read 8 books. It’s certainly doable, especially since I’ll probably read Mockingjay (the last book in The Hunger Games trilogy) this evening. Today does start the Goodreads Winter Seasonal Challenge, so I’ll be reading books for that, too.
100 is within my reach!
Do you have any reading goals to accomplish before the year ends?
