As we’ve reached the middle of 2018, it is now time to look back on what has been accomplished in terms of reading and the goals I had set for myself.
For my Portuguese followers, I’ve already posted a video on this subject, so if you’re interested, the video will be down below ⇣
Here we go…
1. Read books in all the languages I speak
I’ve been doing good on this one – two languages down, two to go!
2. Read more classics
I could be doing better on this one, to be honest. I have partially read a bunch of Roman classics for my classes, but I’m not sure that counts.
I also started reading ‘Around the World in 80 Days’, but wasn’t enjoying it so it’s paused at the moment. Maybe I’ll end up finishing it soon, who knows?
Either way, I need to pick up the classics on my shelves!
3. Read Portuguese authors
Ooooh yeah, this one I have definitely kept up with! Up until this year, I had barely read anything by Portuguese authors, only a couple of children’s books like 10 years ago. However, in 2018 I’ve already read books by three different national authors, so I’m having the time of my life 😄
4. Book-buying ban
5. The 5-to-1 rule
This one is also a bust. I definitely did not buy one book for every five books I read… instead, I bought like 2 for every book I read 😅
6. Book unhauls
I did do a book unhaul in May! You can see the books I gave away here, I posted about it 😉
7. Keep improving my blog & Instagram
This one has definitely been a priority – even more so than reading! As you probably know by now, I have just switched to self-hosted WordPress, so I now have a proper website. I have also been changing some stuff when it comes to my pictures, as well as posting a lot more frequently on here. So I really have been making progress on this one.
Additionally, we have recently hit two milestones: 200 blog followers and 1800 on Instagram, so I am ecstatic, to say the least 😄😍 Thank you so much!! ♡
8. Finish the books and series I’ve started
I’m currently working on this problem. Slowly, but surely, I have been finishing the books I started a while back. I still haven’t finished any series, though, so I need to get on that!
How have you been doing on your goals so far? Better than me, hopefully!!
Thank you so much for reading,
I’ll see you in my next post ♡
P.S. I am away on vacation with little-to-no access to Wi-Fi. If you don’t see much activity on here for a few days, that’s why. I apologize in advance – I’ll make it up to you when I’m back! 😄Tags: bookish goals, books, goal check
