Bookish Resolutions Challenge: April Recap

Posted April 30, 2015 by Lola in Challenges / 16 Comments

The 2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge hosted by A Reader Lives A Thousand Lives and Because Reading is Better Than Real Life.

Every month on the 30th I will be doing my recap of that month. You can check out my goal post here

February Recap

  • Accept no more than 1 book with a deadlines each month. I already failed this goal in February when I signed-up for two deadline books in March and in April. I did complete this goal for February and January. I had quite some deadlines for this month and so far I have two deadline books for next month. How did I ever think I could reach this goal, lol.
  • Read at least 3 (cozy) mysteries. No progress on this, still at zero cozy mysteries read. I have grabbed some free cozy mystery books though, does that count as progress? I guess not, but there is still time.
  • Read at least 3 historical romances. I read 2 historical romances so far. I read The Mine by John Heldt. It’s actually a bit of a crossover book with time travel and historical romance elements, but I thought the historical romance elements where prominent enough to count it as historical romance. And last month I read In for a Penny by Rose Lerner, which was a lot of fun. I have grabbed a few free historical romances and own a paperback historical paranormal romance, so at least I have enough books to read in this genre.
  • Read at least 20 review books this year. I am doing great for this goal, I read 28 review books so far! I can’t believe how well I did with this goal! Next goal is reading at least double of my original goal, namely 40 review books! I can do this!
  • Organize at least 30 tours with Lola’s Blog Tours. I organized 14 tours so far, so almost halfway this goal! I already have two more tours booked but that is for far away and doesn’t have a banner yet. I am also doing well with my cover reveals and review opportunities.

How are you doing with your (bookish) resolutions so far?

    • It’s so hard to say no to review requests, while I am reading a lot of review copies my pile is still way too high. last time I checked I had around 50 unread books that I got for review, oops. It’s good you’re doing well on your bookish resolutions :).

  1. I only have a couple of goals this year. I want to read 42 books total this year, but I think I’ll be able to read 50 at the rate I’m going. And, I want a couple of them to be classics. I’ve already read two. So, I’m doing pretty good!

    Good job on the goals you’re doing. It looks like you’re making good progress, even if you can’t say no to reviews. 😉

    • My yearly goal was 55 books, but I have read enough novella’s that I think I’ll get over that goal. It’s fun to do better than planed :).
      I don’t feel too bad about failing the deadline challenge as I broke it for books I wanted to read.

  2. You’re doing so well with your goals! My main goal for this year was to read 100 books — which I completed this week, so I’ll definitely have to up that goal further. Another resolution of mine was to read more classics novels; I’ve only read one this year, but I do plan on working on that in the near future.

    • Wow that’s awesome you already read so many books this year! I think my yearly goodreads goal is at 55 books and I am already ahead. And some goals take time, like my cozy mystery challenge, let’s hope I have more progress to report there next month or mayeb the month after that. And good luck with your reading goals!

    • Yeah same here, I stay away for awhile and then there are all this great books and tours popping up and I need to have them. At least I failed this challenge for some good books ;). And indeed beside that one goal I am doing pretty good!
