Bookish Resolutions Challenge: March Recap

Posted March 30, 2015 by Lola in Challenges / 18 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 last month 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 and next month, although I finished most of those books already, I am just calling this one big failure as I can’t say no to deadline books sometimes.
  • Read at least 3 (cozy) mysteries. No progress on this, still at zero cozy mysteries read.
  • Read at least 3 historical romances. I read 2 historical romances so far! Yay this goal suddenly seems manegable. 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 this month I read In for a Penny by Rose Lerner, which was a lot of fun, my review will be up later this week.
  • Read at least 20 review books this year. I am doing great for this goal, I read 19 review books so far! Almost there!
  • Organize at least 30 tours with Lola’s Blog Tours. I organized 13 tours so far, so almost halfway this goal! I already have one more tour booked but that is for far away and doens’t have a banner yet.

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

  1. I’m kind of bad with deadlines lately :/ Hopefully, I shall improve.. & I’m glad you’re almost at your goal! Only one book away – I’m about 30% at my goal, it’s to read 250 books this year. I know, I read a lot – it’s mainly because I don’t work anymore so I have a lot of free time now, just school xD Thank you for sharing!

    • I do well with the deadline themselves, but I accept too many books with deadlines, luckily I have most of them read for now, but April was a bit of a busy month getting all those deadline books read early in advance. Beside doing well with my review books goal I also am doign well for my goodreads challenge having read a total of 25 books, alreayd, while my goal is 55. I think 120 books a year is the most I ever reached and even then I also read a lot of novella’s to get that high. Even with just school I think reading so much is quite the achievement.

  2. I don’t have a lot of bookish resolutions this year. Really the only one I made was to keep track of all the books I read this year and post it on the last day of the year. So far so good and I’ve read 34 books so far this year. I’m hoping to read 200 books this year but I don’t know if that’s going to happen.

    • Oh that’s a nice amount of books you read so far! I think I have read a total of 25 books this year so far and my goal was to read 55 books this year, so I am doing pretty well with that goal as well. I mostly use goodreads to keep track of the books I read each year as it’s nice to see the overview at the end of the year with which books you read. Good luck with your reading goal!

    • I accepted quite some deadline books in the past month, but I’ve been able to keep up with them so far. I am currently readign a deadline book and am still waiting on review copies of two more. I am happy with how much review books I read so far this year, I am really hoping I can make a nice dent into that pile.

    • I accept way too many review books with deadlines and I had two beta reads with deadlines month. Ah well I am happy I don’t have to worry about that goal anymore, lol. I think I will enjoy cozy mysteries, but as it’s a genre I don’t read often I don’t see those books often. I do grabbed a few free cozy mysteries thanks to bookbub, so I am hoping to give those a try soon!
