As part of keeping book resolutions, I’ve decided to write monthly recaps. It helps me pay attention to how I’m meeting those goals.
For context, here are the goals I set:
- 150 books total.
- 50,000 pages.
- 40 non-fiction.
- 10 classics.
- 10 books translated into English (excluding those on my “classics” list).
- 15 books outside my comfort zone.
- 22 books off my TBR list.
This month, I read:
- 12 books.
- 3,728 pages (and 35 hours of audiobook).
- 1 non-fiction.
Those are the only goals I made progress on, since I didn’t read any classics, books outside my comfort zone, or anything off my TBR list.
I am, however, listening to Moby-Dick on audio, so I’m working on the classics goal.
This month was extremely heavy on fantasy–only 2 out of 12 weren’t fantasy. And most of those were YA. Interestingly enough, nearly all of them were written by women. I’m not sure what that says about my reading preference, but I’m going to keep observing the gender of authors to see if I consistently track that way.
What did you read this month?
