I didn't get too ahead of myself this year with my book goals. Sometimes I have three or four different types of reading challenges for myself. I wasn't feeling that too much back in January. I'm still not feeling it, so I'm glad I didn't do it. I did however set myself a book total goal like I always did.
Book Total Goal for 2017: 70
This is more than my goal for last year, but I did surpass my goal last year.
Total for 2017 so far: 27
According to Goodreads, I'm six books behind schedule. I am okay with this, though.
Diversity in Books:
I didn't really set a goal for this because I didn't really have any idea of where I was because I never kept track before. So this year my goal is to keep track.
I have a spreadsheet in which I'm checking off books as having either a main character or the author who is a POC, LGBTQ+, or a person with a disability (mental or physical).
So far, I have 10 out of 27 books that count as diverse. I'm setting the goal for myself to get to 20.
A few of my favorite experiences this year have been re-reads. So far, I have re-read the following titles:
I'm currently finishing up The Handmaid's Tale. It's been years since I read it and although I remember it, I don't remember the details. And I want to see the Hulu series, but need a refresher first.
Finally, my favorites so far! I wanted to add The Dark Days Club and Red Queen, but I thought it was cheating because they were re-reads from just last year and they shouldn't be on my favorites list two years in a row--should they?
In no particular order:
