So this is going to be a quick rant but at the moment I hate going on Goodreads. Why? Because I am reminded by how much I am failing in my reading this year. Right after logging in, I am met with the large purple sticker that marks the Goodreads 2021 Reading Challenge and the number of books I have currently read – 24! An average of 3 books a month.
I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise since every single month this year I have failed to read the full number of books on my TBR. It’s probably one of the worst reading years I have had in a long time.
To make matters worse, Goodreads then has to promptly remind me that I am 13 books behind schedule. With five months left out of the year how the hell am I going to make up this deficit?
But I need to calm down. All is not lost – at least not yet.
There are still 5 months left out of the year. A quick math calculation shows that I only need to read 8 books each month for the rest of the year to not only make up the deficit but reach my goal of 65 books.
So here goes nothing.
