How to Reach Your Reading Goals

Hey y’all!

So I’ve recently finished my reading goal for the year. You read that right: I finished my yearly reading goal by the end of September! What an awesome feeling. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, let me explain. On Goodreads, a site for readers who want to learn about books and connect with other readers, they have a reading challenge so that we can challenge ourselves to read more books. You can also see what your friends are reading and how many books they plan on reading for the year, but be aware that if this will cause you to get super competitive and down on yourself, I suggest you don’t look at their goals.

Last year, I had a goal of reading 20 books but by the summer, I’d reach that goal so I stretched it to 25 which I did reach by December. This year, I wanted to stretch it a bit further so I planned to read 30 books for the year and I’ve just completed that goal. I was so happy and proud of myself!

Now, I’m not going to stretch my goal out for the rest of the year like I did last year because well, I don’t want to stress myself out! Although, if I’m being 100% honest, sometimes I beat myself up because my reading goals wasn’t in the hundred range or even 50! I follow many people who read like nine books a month. I also follow those who read no books a month and struggle to finish even one book so that helps me keep things in perspective.

So, how did I do it? How can you do it? Well here are some tips of how to make your reading goals:

As you can see, reading books shouldn’t be a daunting task. It’s fun! Plus, you grow as a reader. What are some of your favorite ways to read more books?

I’ve reached my goal by the end of September!
