So, not so long ago I saw MeltingPages do a check in on her own reading goals. Looking at pages read, how many books read etc. I thought that was such a good idea so I wanted to do one myself.
To have a look at MeltingPages check in, just go to her blog here.
So, I am covering from January 1st all the way up until now. So for a quick recap my main hope was to:
- Read 59 books
- Read all my sequels
- Complete the ONTD reading challenge
- Reading 3/4 of my physical TBR
- Read more manga, graphic novels and comics
For a more in-depth look at my goals for 2021, check it out here.
How many books I have read so far?
So far, I have read 22 books. Since I have been branching out into more manga etc. I have managed to read a lot more books than I normally would. I read 8 books in January alone!
How many sequels have I read so far?
So, since I created my reading plan some of the sequels I planned to read I decided to not continue with or the sequel doesn’t come out until 2022. So, I am left with 12 sequels to read this year. I have decided to read 1 a month and so far I have read 3.
- Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 10-12 by Hiromu Arakawa
- Lord Edgware Dies by Agatha Christie
- Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
How far have I got in my ONTD Reading Challenge?
So, I have not done well with this challenge. I started off well but looking forward I don’t think I will succeed in this challenge this year. I have so many other books I want to read so I think I will be prioritising them. But these are the books I did read.
- January: Read a book by a South Korean author – The Plotters by Un-Su Kim
- February: Read a book by an Argentinian author – Death Going Down by Maria Angelica Bosco
How many books of my Physical TBR have I read?
So, so far I have read 15 books from my Physical TBR. I wanted to read about 3/4 books from TBR which is about 32 books. So, for nearly halfway through my desired numbers about 4 months in is really good so I am happy with my progress.
How many books have I read for my Not a Novel Challenge?
These are any books that aren’t a novel. So, basically manga, graphic novels and comics. So far, I have read 9 books and I have enjoyed a lot of them!!
So, there is my little check in! I do plan on doing my halfway check in that everyone does, The Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag!
