Summer Reading Goals Wrap-Up

summer-reading-1

Hey everyone!  So, in the beginning of summer I wrote a post telling you all about my reading goals for the summer.  Well, since summer 2016 is over now (*sad face*), I thought I’d look back at my goals and see which ones I accomplished, and which goals I need to work on for next summer!


1. Read at least 15 books

I diiiid it!! From Memorial Day to Labor Day I actually read 20 books! I am super pleased with myself, and actually am very surprised that I not only reached my goal, but surpassed it!

2. Complete my library’s summer reading program

Check!  I read for all 50 days and ended up with a nifty T-shirt and a free smoothie coupon!

3. Reread some old favorites

This is one goal I still need to work on.  I am currently rereading Twilight, so maybe this one half counts…or maybe half of a half…or not. lol  It’s just so hard for me to reread books when there are so many books I haven’t read yet, but then I really do want to revisit my old favorites…! #thestruggleisreal

4. Read more classics

My goal was to read at least 2 classics each month.  I ended up only reading 1 classic a month, but hey, at least I stayed on track for the Classics Challenge!  Also, I truly enjoyed all three of the classics I read.  So, even though I didn’t read as many classics as I intended to, I still feel like I sort of achieved this goal.  I’d say this one half counts, though! 😉

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

I feel like I achieved this goal.  Obviously, I still have a huge TBR pile, but I ended up reading some books that I’d had for quite a while.  Also, I didn’t really buy very many books, and I only checked out 4 library books all summer – which is unheard of for me!  I really wanted to focus on reading the books that I already owned this summer, and I feel like I did that.

6. Participate in the Hedgeathon 2016

The Hedgeathon was a summer read-a-thon, and it was created by Natalie at Books and Quills.  I just narrowly managed to finish it on time, but it was so much fun!  I actually wrote wrap-up post specifically for the Hedgeathon.  If you’re interested, here it is!

Well, that wraps up my reading for summer 2016!  Overall, I had a pretty great summer, and I hope you all did, too.  I’m super sad summer is over, but I admit, I am looking forward to fall now.  Nothing is cozier than a nice cup of tea (or a Pumpkin Spice Latte, if that’s more your style 😉 ), a warm blanket,  and a really good book.

  1. I can so relate with what you said about rereading books! There are a few books that I loved when I first read them and I want to revisit them, but at the same time, I have a ridiculous amount of books sitting there that I haven’t gotten to yet.

  2. WOOOOOOOOAH! This is a huge GOAL!
    Congratulations!
    Recently I read “the princess saves herself in this one” and I really enjoyed it! What a fresh reading.
    Sadly, I can’t humanly read all this much not even in the summer. Since my summer is one or two weeks off from work. But I generally read when I’m going to work since I take the train, so yeaaaah!

    • Thank you! Honestly, I couldn’t believe I was able to read that much this summer! 🙈 You may not have much time off from work, but being able to read on your way to work is perfect!! Plus I know whenever I graduate from college and get a big girl job, my summer breaks will no longer be as long either, so I have to read a lot while I still can! 😭😆
