2019 Mid-Year (ish) Reading + Blogging Goals Checkup

Comments 7 Standard

At the start of 2019, I set four simple goals for myself. Though it hasn’t always been easy, I’m doing my best to get them done.

I’m super late on this but here’s my Mid-Year (ish) Checkup.

Reading Goals Checkup

Read 25 Books – 10 being physical copies

So far I’ve finished 15 books this year and according to Goodreads, I’m right on track for my goals. Only 3 out of those 15 were audiobooks, meaning I’ve kept my promise to read more physical books.

Read from more Latinx Authors

I’ve read both The Poet X and With the Fire on High (review coming this Friday) this year. Elizabeth Acevedo is definitely up there on my list of new favorite authors for 2019.

Blogging Goals Checkup

Blog consistently – at least 2x a week

I’ve done so much better this year than I could have ever imagined. Usually, I’ll stop blogging when school starts up again and I start feeling overwhelmed, but not this year.

This year, I pushed through and posted more than I’ve every posted before. There were a few consistent weeks where I had a post up every single day. I’m hoping to keep that same energy for the next few months.

Start a Bookstagram and stay active

I did start the Bookstagram and I’ve been (relatively) active. It has been a fun, creative outlet for me and I’m loving the support there. It was a great way to participate in the Reading Rush this year.

All in All

2019 has been a great year for both reading and blogging. I’ve expanded my literary palate and read more books with LGBTQ+, Muslim, Latinx, POC, and other underrepresented backgrounds. I’m looking forward to reading even more these next couple months.

What were your goals at the start of 2019?

How do you stay consistent?

What was your biggest accomplishment of 2019 so far?

  1. This is inspiring to write my goals.down. My Goodreads is 40 books and am on 27! I find it motivating to have the app to show me what I have achieved. Good to have the validation for the hard work!

  2. One of my goals was to finish a book I never finished during Spring since it was so hectic. I’ve read 3 more books since then and I’m happy with myself for that. You’re doing your thang too, keep blogging boo!

  3. At the beginning of the year I said I was going to read 20 books but I have decided to push myself and read 40 books this year. Hopefully I can do it!
