Reading Resolutions Revisited: May 2016

Welcome back to another installment of my new Monthly Reading Resolutions updates. I decided I wouldn’t participate in many official challenges this year; instead I created some Reading Resolutions. This post is my attempt to keep track of how I’m getting on with reading and blogging.

Flights of Fantasy

Seems I’ve unintentionally had a Fantasy-free month, so my total for this challenge remains at 4 books read.


I set myself a target of 25 books this year. So far I’ve read 13 books.


I’m still managing to post my reviews promptly after finishing a book, although this month I’ve read so little this hasn’t really been an issue.

I participated in the latest Bout of Books. I don’t feel as though I’ve taken part in many reading events so far this year, so if there’s anything coming up do please let me know.

So concludes May’s Monthly Reading Resolutions update. Have you signed up for any challenges this year, or are you taking a more general approach to reading?
See you again next month!

    About two years ago I decided to stop participating in official challenges and just made my own personal list of goals for each year. I found it has worked out better for me and that I can make my own rules tailored to my reading goals and habits.
    I hope you find that this is working out better for you as well!

      I think it’s working better for me so far because I can be more general in what I hope to achieve. I have such a massive TBR list and keep adding so many books to it I know there’s no way I’ll ever get to read them all, so being more general in my reading goals works well.
