I am back today with my summer reading plans/goals post. I was inspired by the lovely Celine (celinereads.com). It will be quite the busy summer for me, considering all the vacations, working + classes I’m taking. However, I still have high expectations. You know what they say, “shoot for the stars”. These goals might sound a little crazy, but I was looking back on my wrap ups from last summer and I definitely think I can do it.
- Read 50 books.
I know, 50 books? Are you crazy Jen? No I am not. I was calculating and apparently I read around 45 books last summer, so 50 should not be too much of a stretch. Plus, it’d be an extra bonus because it would definitely put me on track for my Goodreads challenge.
2. Read 3 classics.
I told myself last summer that I would read a few classics; however, I never got around to it. Last winter break, I bought myself 3 classics, but still never got around to it. I recently bought Pride & Prejudice + The Great Gatsby (although I did read this in high school). I am definitely determined that this will be the summer where I actually read the classics I bought, or at least 3 of them.
3. Read 5 non-fiction books.
If you have been following my blog or Instagram, you know that I read a lot of Young Adult fiction. Although I love YA books, I really want to adventure out. I actually bought a few non-fiction books based on the recommendation of one of my professors and I am really looking forward to reading it!
4. Clear out my “continue-later” shelf on Goodreads
I have this bad habit of starting books, then not continuing and dumping them into my continue-later shelf. My goal is to have finished all the books currently on my continue later shelf. PS, if you want to add me on Goodreads, you can click here.
5. Finish series that I’ve started
I have commitment problems. This is why I tend to read stand alones, and not series. This is because when you start a series, you are not committing yourself to one book, but to a whole series…. this may be 3-5 more books + endless novellas/short stories. Some series I need to finish/ continue reading (if it is not all released yet) is The Knife of Never Letting Go, Throne of Glass, Broken Hearts series, The Lunar Chronicles (I still haven’t finished the novellas or Fairest yet) etc.
That’s it for this post, hoping that this summer will be a summer of great reads!! What are your reading goals this summer?
