2024 Reading Goals Check-In

Now that the year is halfway over (can you believe it?), I thought I’d check-in on my progress with my 2024 reading goals. My reading goals are:

  1. Read at least 30 books.
  2. Read 50% of my book club books.
  3. Read at least 15 of my Book of the Month (BOTM) books.

I’ve been keeping track of my progress on my 2024 Reads page.

Yearly Goal

My goal for the year is to read 30 books and I’ve read 18. I’m more than halfway there! Woot Woot.

So far, my favorite books are:

  1. Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt
  2. Book Lovers by Emily Henry
  3. This Spells Love by Kate Robb
  4. Beartown by Fredrik Backman
IRL Book Club

I made a goal to read at least 50% of my IRL book club books this year. I’ve currently read 3 out of 6. To reach my goal, I only need to read three more books.

Book of the Month

Since joining BOTM in January 2022, I’ve amassed quite a lot of books I need / want to read. I made a goal to read 15 books by the end of the year. I’ve only read 2 so far. It looks like I’m quite a bit behind on this one. I think I better stop rereading books I’ve already read.

Even though I’m behind on my BOTM Challenge, I’m pretty happy with my reading progress, especially since I didn’t get much reading done in March and April thanks to my health. I’ve really loved all the books I’ve read this year and I can’t wait to discover more books to love during the last half of the year.

How are you doing on your goals this year?

    Didn’t the year just start?? I still need to read Remarkably Bright Creatures. I had a copy from the library, then a friend was in desperate need of the book for her Book Club, so I let her read my copy. I need to put it back on hold.

      Right?! It feels like the year just started. I can’t believe we’re in the second half. I hope you enjoy RBC when you get a chance to read it.

    Horrified to realise we’re halfway through the year already! I’m a bit behind on my reading goals this year, but doing OK on challenges as I’ve been doubling up books.

      Right?! This year has flown by so fast. I have a little bit of whiplash from it, lol. I’m glad you’re doing okay on your challenges. I always seem to have trouble with challenges. At least it’s fun trying.
