2019 | A (Late) Mid Year Goodreads Update

So, I’ve been away for a while, as explained in this post here, but I’ve still been reading as much as I can. It’s just that the internet connection where I am is awful, so I’ve not been able to post as much as I’d have liked to. However, while I have a little free time, I thought I’d post a catch up on everything I’ve read since my absence.

2019 august

My reading challenge for this year was 60 books, 10 more than my goal of last year. Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting to manage it, but so far things are going in my favour. Hopefully, being ahead of schedule will continue, it always feels so unsatisfying when you’re not ahead of your target!

Since my absence, I’ve managed to read around thirty-one books, adding to my previous ten to make my forty-one total. Some of my favourites of the year are on this list, and I can’t wait to get around to speaking about them in reviews and reading the sequels. Although, I’m a little behind on my reviews right now, I’ve managed a few and I will eventually get around to the rest of them. Some are incredibly easy to ramble about!
