Summer Reading Goals 2016!

Summer Reading (1).jpg

Hey everyone!  Today I want to talk about my reading goals for this summer.  I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, and I decided that since today is officially the first day of summer, it’s time for me to actually write it!  Just to be clear, I generally count my “summer reading” from approximately Memorial Day to Labor Day.  So, late May through early September.

1. Read at least 15 books

I realize that this is a bit of an ambitious goal being that I only read 17 books from January through May.  I’ve done it before though, and I can do it again!  I have a lot more time to read during the summer months.

2. Complete my library’s summer reading program

I love participating in my library’s summer reading program!  It’s super easy to complete, too.  All I have to do is read 26 days and do some sort of physical activity (swimming, walking, gardening, etc.) for 26 days as well.  If I manage to read 50 days, I get an additional prize.  Being that I read everyday, that shouldn’t be a problem for me!

3. Reread some old favorites

There are so many amazing books out there that I haven’t read, that sometimes I forget about all the books I already love.  This summer, I want to reminisce and reread at least a few of my old favorites.

4. Read more classics

I’m already participating in ThePrettyBook’s 2016 Classics Challenge, so I already try to read at least one classic a month.  However, I’d really like to try and read at least two a month this summer.

5. Conquer my TBR…or at least tame it…

My TBR pile is out of control, and yet I keep buying more books!  My goal this summer is to actually read more of the books that I already own, so I don’t have hundreds of books on my shelves that I haven’t even read.

6. Participate in The Hedgeathon 2016 by Natalie @ Books and Quills


This looks like a really fun, summer readathon!  There are 12 different challenges, but you only have to complete 8 to “win.”  It started June 1st, and goes all the way through July 31st.  You can read all about the Hedgeathon, its challenges, and how to participate by clicking here!

Well, that about sums up my summer reading goals.  What are yours?

Also, I stumbled across this beauty of a GIF and just had to include it.  That’s me every time I go to the library! Hahaha!

  1. Those are all great goals. I need to keep reading! I had a 50 book goal this year so I am trying to keep myself to reading a lot of new books and I am still working on Book Riot’s Read Harder Challenge.

  2. I had to laugh when I saw the gif of Arthur. I’m 21 years old but every once in awhile I get that song stuck in my head hahaha That was one of my favorite episodes when I was a kid. Good luck on meeting all your goals!
